No matter how jaded you get, there’s something exciting about seeing something worth a ton of money. It’s why the Federal Reserve gives tours, it’s why cash booths are a thing, and it’s why they have previews for events like Friday’s Automobiles of Arizona Auction at the Arizona Biltmore, 2400 East Missouri Avenue.
2400 E. Missouri Ave.
Phoenix, AZ 85016
