Is the car show still for all types of cars? i went on the Pavillian website and it said there was a classic car show every saturday.
Best Free Car Show - 2008
Scottsdale Pavilions Car Show
The law of entropy says that energy dissipates if not contained. But humans like to localize their energies, and thankfully so because some of us have some pretty sweet cars. There's no better place to see a hundred or so collector cars than the free Scottsdale Pavilion car show, every Saturday night. The Pavilions Car Show is a weekly gathering of gearheads from across the Valley; the show's Web site says it's the "the largest consistently run car show in the United States."
The cars start rumbling in around 4 p.m. every Saturday, but it takes a couple of hours to fill the parking lot near Best Buy and McDonald's on the north side of Indian Bend Road (just off Loop 101).
By 6 or 7 p.m., the parking lot is usually stocked with hundreds of cars, from vintage classics to modern-day imports with coffee-can exhaust tips. Clusters of make/model and year form naturally.
You'll find rows of 1950s Chevy Bel Aires, followed by 1960s Camaros, and, across the way, vintage Mustangs and '32 Fords. You'll also find a few rows of newer rice-burners, including tricked-out Toyota Supras and Acura NSXs, as well as the usual wanna-be Honda Civics and Volkswagen Jettas with crappy fiberglass ground effects.
If you work up an appetite or just want a milkshake, that McDonald's is a few paces away, and a 5 & Diner is across the street.
Did you really have to be so nasty towards the Imports? In all actuality from what I've seen the classic/muscle guys tend to head home around 9 or 10, and it goes all out import after that.. I haven't seen a "crappy fiberglass kit" in a long time. Most of the import people are just as serious about there cars as the muscle/classic owners. As a editor it would benefit more people if you weren't so biased.
I have been here many times and there is always new cars showing up. I don t know who put the show on but they do a great job!
I went to the Pavillions in the summer or 2009 and enjoyed it. Just wondering if there is still alotta cars that roll out there this time of year with the cold weather and all?
Pavillions was always a great place to meet up with all of your friends into cars... We would say: "Are you gonna be at pavillions?" And everyone would show up there. Great place to start off the night, checking out all the cars and than moving onto the next cool place to go (decided at the pavillions) after the event ended. If you are in Phoenix, it is a "must go" at least to find out when all the other car shows are going to be. Everyone hands out event flyers!
