This week we wanted to show some love to some of our favorite auto clubs, cliques and communities in our hometown. From lowriders to vintage pickups and Porsches, there’s a lot going on in Phoenix when it comes to some of the coolest rides you’ll see in the world. After all, Barrett-Jackson happens only just up the freeway in Scottsdale!
First up is Fourtillfour coffee in Oldtown Scottsdale. This seemingly quaint little coffee shop hosts some of the most mint classic (and modern) Porsches in its meetup. With a steady social media following, it’s a great way to get your Saturday morning coffee while taking in some 6-cylinder boxer-engined German engineering.
Los Boulevardos, a custom lowrider club in town has been on the scene for a while now, but with how wet the paint on their rides are you’d never know it. Pretty much any make and model of American long-wheelbase sedan from the 50’s to the 70’s is represented, all without any detail spared when it comes to their restoration and, of course, suspension modifications.
Friday night drags at Wild Horse Pass is a classic for auto enthusiasts in Phoenix, and one well-supported by the community. Open to the public, their “run what you bring” event once a month is the safest way to gain bragging rights over your friends if you’re wondering who has the faster ride but don’t have a way to prove it. It’s also a pretty inclusive atmosphere, with no one looking down on your beater or jalopy even if you’re going up against a built up hotrod.
And with free spectator entry, concession stands and the ability to haul a passenger if your ride runs the quarter in over 14 seconds, there are ways to get everyone who goes with you involved.
All in all, Phoenix is a great place to be if cars are your thing. And when it comes to auto repair and maintenance, The Auto Shop can help you out no matter what kind of ride you bring in. From our brand new location we can do it all! Just give us a call at (602) 256-6164 today!
