It’s Auction Time!! The 2012 Orange County Barrett Jackson Auction in Southern California is just a little over a week away with the pre-events starting next Sunday. While it is pretty unlikely many of us Northern Californians will be heading down to SoCal to check out the auction that doesn’t mean we are going to get left out. No doubt you’ve already discovered that Barrett Jackson has live TV feeds of the action packed auction for the armchair bidders.

2012 Barrett-Jackson Auction Catalog

What’s TV without a TV guide? Pretty much the same as an auction without a catalog! All guesswork! The Orange County Barrett Jackson Auction is putting out a catalog of the collector cars that will be sold at the show. You can buy the catalog online now and it will be shipped in the next few days. The catalogs are sold online for $11.99 for the Orange County auction. You can also pick up a catalog for some of the other Barrett Jackson Auctions like the Scottsdale, Palm Beach and Las Vegas auctions.

Speed will be doing live coverage of part of the auctions that will be held Friday June 22 to Sunday June 24th. While the automotive auction starts and 10 am Friday and Saturday (9am on Sunday) and the collector car auctions will start at noon Friday and Saturday (11am on Sun), the TV broadcast doesn’t start until later. There will be six hours of auction broadcasted on Friday and Saturday starting at 2pm and ending at 8pm and 4 hours on Sunday starting at noon and ending at 4pm.
