Here is the first car from the Barrett-Jackson exhibit at the Canadian International Auto Show, and has something quite special about it. I focused shortly on the sign as to not make the video too long for Instagram, so here is what the sign said. “American Motors Corporation built the sporty Javelin between 1967 and 1974, in two generations. When AMC entered Tran-Am Series racing, this 1969 race car was originally driven by Jerry Grant, until Roger Penske and his team used the car for developmental purposes. The car is a 1969 Ronnie Kaplan Javelin, reskinned as a 1970. Kaplan, former co-driver with Jim Rathman in the Mexican Road Race, and “co-worker” with Smokey Yunick, built race #3 AMC Javelin in 1969 for a number of drivers, most notably USAC Championship and Indianapolis 500 ace Jerry Grant, and Ron Grable. Grable drove more frequently than Grant. The car was raced by Grant until it was retired from Trans Am racing. The Javelin is now owned AND raced by Barret-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson.” What’s your favorite part about this stunning classic and its story?

From Witty wheeler-dealers, masters in buying and selling, @lamborghini#Miura fine tuners, to iconic car designers and charismatic hosts, the #LCCS2019 has had amazing energy at ExCeL London for the past 4 days.
It has been the year of the milestones in 2019; giving us a lot to celebrate. The @mini turned 60, The Italian Job has reached its 50th year, not to mention @citroen and @bentleymotors both celebrating their centenary.
The Grand Avenue has been home to 100's of classics for the past 4 days, and we'll remember all of the tyre marks that have been made by the legendary "Firsts and Sons"; the MINI mania, the fleet of Bentley and Citroens and last but not least the 'Traction Attraction' troop.
Before we close our doors we'd like to thank all of our exhibitors, the event team and of course, all of those that attended. We hope you enjoyed the roars of the engines heard at the #LCCS2019.
We will return!
