Bobcat: 50 Years Unleashed North American Road Tour at Bobcat of Phoenix
By Jonathan McNamara
Bobcat Phoenix was revving with activity on Thursday, July 24 as the Bobcat: 50 Years Unleashed North American Road Tour got underway. No, not the mammalian quadruped variety, the tiny bulldozer kind.
The event featured classic Bobcat models on display including the original 3-wheeled model that put the Bobcat company on the map in 1958. Newer models including a remote control Bobcat were on display as well, but the main draw for the event was the team of square dancing bobcats.
Bobcat of Phoenix Store Manager David Lambert says the square dance is a Bobcat company traditional heralding back to the 1960's.
"They [drivers] practiced two weeks for an hour or so a day to get that down," Lambert said.
