ClassicCars.com, with support from Car Street Journal and the show sponsors, celebrated future collector cars with a show of their own Monday, set during Arizona Car Week atop a parking garage at the Scottsdale Quarter, an upscale shopping district.

Overview of car show

More than 100  cars, produced from 1975 to 2017 model years,  glistened against a backdrop of the McDowell Mountains, with a view of WestWorld, and Scottsdale’s glimmering city lights.

Asian, European, and domestic brands were represented at the show, along with a blending of generations, from baby boomers to millennials and those in-between.

At the conclusion of the show, the cars rolled out together in a parade lap and then dispersed once they hit the street level.

Cars were judged by a panel led by Classic Car News East Coast editor Andy Reid.
