A big part of what we advocate for here at Drone Flyer is freedom. Unimpeded travel is paramount to enjoying all the activities that we hold dear. The automobile has allowed us to be the ultimate deciders of where we want to go and when. It is important that we continue to instill the desire to travel, explore and seek out new places to the next generation, Barrett Jackson does a great job of pushing the idea of freedom forward.
Unequal results reward entrepreneurs who successfully push ideas into the marketplace. An entrepreneur devotes considerable time and energy to creating something they hope benefits society, the promise of outsized rewards makes the undertaking worthwhile.
Barrett- Jackson is a perfect example of everything that is great with America. The auction is a spectacle to witness, with the highly-talented crew soliciting bids from all over the world in real-time at breakneck speed.
Buyers are free to purchase whatever they can afford. The crowd erupts in applause when the first $100k car crosses the auction block. The next thing you know, cars are going for $250k. At the Barrett Jackson Auction in West Palm Beach 2023, Hendrick racing paid $1.1M for a corvette, that has yet to come off the production line vin 001.
The free market is what pushes ideas forward because of the incentive to provide customers with what they desire. Entry to the event includes the ability to go for a ride along with your choice of vehicles from a Corvette, Challenger, Charger, Mustang, Mach-E, or Supra. The rides are very exciting for the average person who does not get to experience these adrenaline rush thrills.
The manufacturers are happy to provide this service to entice potential customers into buying their offerings. The Dodge Challenger has always had an emotional appeal to me, since I first saw one. Ripping down the track and drifting along any number of turns is sure to have some riders, besides myself, thinking about these experiences when purchasing their next brand.
Electric car manufacturers were showing off their goods. Lucid Motors had a tent at the event to allow customers to access the vehicles and get a sense of the quality for themselves. Competition among EV makers will do more to move the industry forward than any government intervention could ever do. Customers should decide for themselves what goods they want on the market by purchasing the best products.
Barrett Jackson is in the auction business, they know that dollars are votes. When a product is popular, consumers are saying that they like what they are seeing. Smart companies continue to offer more products to build upon these relationships.
Each year the production gets bigger, for Barrett Jackson 2023, the next addition will be a show in New Orleans. The cities hosting the events benefit. Large crowds spend money on lodging, shopping and dining.
The ability to enjoy events like these well into the future is important for keeping freedoms alive. The faster we move into the future, the more we need to look to the past. Easy access to travel and transportation is what keeps us free. and it has been that way ever since the introduction of the automobile. Barrett Jackson Palm Beach 2023 was a fun event, hopefully someone will be saying the same thing in 2053.
