There was high drama to open the action Saturday at the 43rd annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car auction, as a Cessna scout plane and a military truck raised $1 million for the Armed Forces Foundation.
AFF President Patricia Driscoll delivered an impassioned introduction about the charity’s work and the bidding quickly hit $750,000 before the hammer fell. Other auction attendees contributed an additional $250,000 bringing the total raised to $1 million.
That made it the first $1 million sale of the auction, with more to come as Super Saturday rolls on live on FOX until 5 p.m. ET and then the National Geographic Channel until midnight.
