ClassicCars.com, with support from Car Street Journal and The Function Factory, celebrated future collector cars with a show of their own Monday, set during Arizona Car Week atop a parking garage at the Scottsdale Quarter, an upscale shopping district.
More than 100 cars, produced from 1975 to 2017 model years, glistened against a backdrop of the McDowell Mountains, with a view of WestWorld, and Scottsdale’s glimmering city lights.
Asian, European, and domestic brands were represented at the show, along with a blending of generations, from baby boomers to millennials and those in-between.
At the conclusion of the show, the cars rolled out together in a parade lap and then dispersed once they hit the street level.
Cars were judged by a panel led by Classic Car News East Coast editor Andy Reid.

- Best of Show – 1998 Toyota Supra, Alek Heit
