SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- What's on deck at this year's Barrett-Jackson? More! "[We have] over 1,900 cars right now at no reserve," said Craig Jackson, the chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. The signature salon space, aka the really expensive cars, grew, too. "We have taken the dome and are putting another 100 cars in there," Jackson said.

Some highlights to hit the auction block -- two 2017 ford GTs, the last C7 Corvette ever built, and a car that flies. "We are all dreaming about these drone-looking cars nowadays that are gonna drive us around," Jackson said. The one up for auction was built 50 years ago.

And then there's the celebrity block. "We are selling the entire Paul Walker collection for his estate," Jackson said.

The Scottsdale event features more than 1 million square feet of automotive lifestyle into which people can immerse themselves. The fun starts Saturday with family day; kids get in for free. "We do that because we want the next generation to grow up loving cars like I grew up loving cars," Jackson said. General-admission tickets for adults are $25 that day.

And one important note for Barrett-Jackson attendees this -- a new clear bag policy.

Barrett-Jackson is Jan. 11-19 at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
