From muscles cars to classics, 600 of the fastest, most extravagant and, of course, collectable vehicles are rolling into the Palm Beach Area for the 6th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event bringing in big names, parties and money.
Car enthusiasts were invited to show off their very own pride and joy while getting an up close and personal view of two KITT Ford Shelby Mustangs from "Knight Rider" and an opportunity to talk with Barrett-Jackson experts including President Gary Bennett and VP Steve Davis. The two presented the "Barrett-Jackson Expert's Choice Awards" to three entrants.
The six-hour event benefited Ford's Salute to Education, a program which awards high school seniors with scholarship money. So far, the program has awarded more than $2.9 million to more than 3,000 seniors in South Florida.
One of the ways they are raising money for the program is auctioning off two of the KITT Ford Shelby Mustangs used in "Knight Rider". The two cars join a list of cars, including eight from the hit TV show "The Sopranos", being auctioned off for charity this year.
