Cristy Lee live from Barrett-Jackson

Cristy Lee called in live on location in Scottsdale, Arizona to give us an update on the Barrett-Jackson collector car event going on now through Sunday, with live coverage on Discovery Channel and Velocity.  We discussed the rare and unique automobiles up for auction, her favorite cars on display, and why you shouldn’t get too close to vintage cars with either a churro or a turkey leg.
