If neither snow nor rain can stop the postman from their appointed rounds, then neither sun nor heat can stop hot car owners from their appointed rounds at the monthly Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering.

The August feature was German high-performance sedans and just as with all the five-hundred plus cars that came out, they obviously don’t have any overheating issues, and do have good air-conditioning systems. There was no shortage of AMG’s, M version Bimmers and RS Audis, many of them sporting very nice power and body modifications. The Audi and BMW Clubs arrived in a very colorful and somewhat loud convoy much to everyone’s delight.

As always there were lots of spectators braving the heat to see so many of the very best cars in the valley affirming Scottsdale’s well-deserved reputation as automobile heaven.

The feature on Saturday September 1 is pairs where we will pair up similar versions of cars to highlight the difference in styling, aerodynamics, engines, wheels, tires and more. For example, we will have mid 90’s front engine V12 Ferraris next to contemporary ones, rear engine Lamborghinis next to modern ones, E-type Jags next to F-Types, original SL model Mercedes’ next to current SLS’s, 60’s era Stingrays next to current Stingrays, and many other examples.

The official show hours are 7AM – 10AM but in reality the show is usually well underway an hour earlier. The location is the Scottsdale 101 Shopping Center on the north-west corner of Scottsdale Rd. and Mayo Boulevard, one block south of the 101 Freeway.
