Yesterday I drove to Scottsdale with three friends (Ed, Chip, and Loren) for the annual Barrett-Jackson auto auction. My friend Dick Herman, who lives near Sacramento, California, was also there.

The annual Tucson Classics Car Show was Saturday, held on the grounds of St. Gregory’s Academy. It’s one of two local car shows I try never to miss (the other one’s in January, on the golf course at Tubac, a resort town south of Tucson). The Gregory School (as it is now known) is an […]

Every January the Santa Cruz Valley Car Nuts put on a car show at the golf course in Tubac, Arizona. Classics, collector cars, muscle cars, sports cars, trucks, exotics … it’s a nice show, and I found it much easier to take in than the […]
