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.

Bobcat of Phoenix Store Manager David Lambert says the square dance is a Bobcat company traditional heralding back to the 1960's.
