Barrett-Jackson announced on Thursday the return of the Future Collector Car Show (FCCS) presented by Meguiar’s during the auction company’s flagship Scottsdale Auction for the second straight year.
The event will be held on Sunday, January 21, 2024, on the Polo Field at WestWorld of Scottsdale. This one-day event will be a part of all the excitement during the nine-day Scottsdale Auction, January 20-28. FCCS is a family-friendly, concours-style event featuring vehicles that best represent the future of the collector car hobby, with the goal of celebrating the cars we love today and the future collectibles of tomorrow. Vehicle registrations for FCCS are open now at FCCS.Barrett-Jackson.com.
“This past January was the first time FCCS was a part of our Scottsdale Auction and it was a resounding success,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The event attracted a large, younger and diverse audience of automotive enthusiasts, and together with our Family Day the day prior, we hosted our largest opening weekend attendance in the history of Barrett-Jackson. I can’t wait to see the entries at FCCS for the second installment at Barrett-Jackson this January, and I look forward to celebrating this great hobby with everyone in attendance.”
At FCCS, spectators will enjoy a variety of vehicles ranging from highly modified custom builds to original and perfectly preserved rides, effectively creating an experience where multiple generations of enthusiasts can find common ground in their love of future collectibles.
Continuing the blend of automotive culture and the world of fashion, FCCS at Barrett-Jackson will also feature an immersive and competitive fashion show.
