Default Various Automotive Gatherings in Arizona

As I stated in a previous thread, I'm from Phoenix, and have gone to several gatherings, and future ones to come, that include muscle cars, hot rods, and range all the way to my favorite, the exotics. In this thread, I will post some of my pictures that I have taken personally. These photos won't always be of the best of quality as the compression from my camera decreases the quality of the image. I won't post which show these are from, but if would like to know what a specific show or automobile is, feel free to ask, and I will reply as fast as possible. ENJOY!

Oh, I almost forgot, the Bugatti Veyron has upgraded wheels to the Pur Sang model. I talked with the owner, and he said, there are only 5 Pur Sangs made, and the wheels are 25k each, not including the tires.

Dunno if there is more than one in Scottsdale, but seen the Silver Diablo couple of times near where my sister lives. Saw pretty much every car model posted here on the streets except for the Veyron... never seen one on streets here.

Wow, another Arizonian. There are a couple Diablos out here. These photos are from Scottsdale Pavilions 10/17/09 and Cars and Coffee @ Scottsdale Auto Salon off Bell Road.

Have you gone to any of the shows? The owner frequently attends, he also owns the SLR in that photo, and is really a nice guy and will answer anyones questions.

If you want to come to any of the shows, there are shows every Saturday at the Scottsdale Pavilions from 4PM-8:30PM, lots of muscle cars, but just a few exotics.

Every first Saturday of the month, there is a show at Gainey Ranch, it is also called Cars and Coffee. It is usually in the morning time, around 7:45-9am, depending on the weather.

And, a huge show, although I haven't uploaded some pictures of it, Concourso Arizona 2009 will be November 14th, PM me for the exact date, and lots of exotics, about 95% of the show will be exotics. Last year, it showed the Bugatti Veyron, the Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari F40, and lots of other interesting cars.

If you ever need a ride to the event, I usually go alone, so if you want to meet up, PM me. I've been in Arizona for 3 years, I go to Arizona State.

Nice pics! Some really cool rides there.
I'm waiting for such shows to happen in Houston. Once the lousy weather changes, we should see a few hot rod shows, as well as some random meets with all types of cars.

I hear you, I went out this morning and it was 46 degrees. I'll be in Austin for the winter, and that is going to suck. I'm not a big fan of cold weather anymore.

Here are some random shots I got from my cell phone:

Sorry for the last one, it's of a Rolls Royce Drophead coupe, it was being driven by some young kids around my age, and on the college campus. It was a sight to see, but a horrible picture, so I apologize. Also a horrbile picture of a Lotus Elise I saw yesterday. I was driving so it's a bad image as well.

Nice pics.
Gotta hate that red insult to the classic Volkswagen Beetle though.

Thanks Jayabusa, not too sure what you mean by insult, it was a cool looking car, and was about the size of the SMART car, not too sure how it would do in a crash but it attracted lots of people and it seemed as if the owners were having fun, and that's really what matters.
