We're back with even more coverage of the 2015 SEMA show. We learn about Barrett-Jackson's new auction in Connecticut and the Garage Shop's amazing 197 mph 1939 Ford Truck. Segment 1: We Salute You As we gear up for another great week, we give a shout out to the veterans that sacrifice to keep our country strong. Segment 2: Barrett-Jackson in Connecticut If you live in the north eastern United States, you probably only get to watch a Barrett-Jackson auction on TV and have given up all hope of seeing one live. VP of Sales and Business, Peter Lubell, eases our fears and tells us about a new auction location in Connecticut. Segment 3: Financing at Barrett-Jackson Barrett-Jackson auctions aren't just for the super-rich. Peter Lubell fills us in on the different ways you can buy a classic car at Barrett-Jackson, including long-term financing. Segment 4: Veterans and Fast Trucks Veterans have a work ethic and accountability that you just don't see in most workers these days. The Garage Shop's Aaron Brown gives us some examples of the hardworking, leadership values of the veterans in his employ, and the history of his 190 mph 1939 Ford Truck. Segment 5: Rat Rodding History When it came to choosing between the automotive hobby and a life on the farm, it was a no-brainer for Aaron Brown. Aaron gives us his history as a NASCAR team member and a custom rat rodder. Segment 6: Land Speed Record Aaron Brown isn't satisfied with the Rat Rod land speed record of 197 mph, he wants to get over 200! We discuss the process or making a 1939 Ford Truck go that fast.
