You may have heard that a 1958 Ferrari California recently sold for $8.25 million at auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., but these auctions aren't just reserved for the ultra-wealthy.
There are also opportunities for up-and-coming enthusiasts to begin their vintage car collections with items like these cars and trucks that sold at Barrett-Jackson for less than $20,000. Often much less.
Case in point: Complete with a roof rack with wooden slats and cool blue-painted wheels this is one very nice-looking Beetle. And, according to the Hagerty Collector Car Price Guide, the winning bid of just over $6,000 was about on the money. Maybe even a little low.
All prices shown here include a 10% buyer's commission.
