Hood ornaments from the Arizona Concours

Hood ornaments from the Arizona Concours

Photos By Hans Marquez At the Arizona Concours d’Elegance I was taken back and inspired by the rare and unique automobiles that were on display. The ambiance of these immaculate cars sprawled across the Arizona Biltmore lawn with music from Frank Sinatra playing in the background almost made me feel a bit sad. My generation, the […]

Pick of the Week: 1966 Pontiac GTO

Pick of the Week: 1966 Pontiac GTO

After witnessing all those high-end collector cars selling for nosebleed prices during Arizona  auction week, I thought I would come back to earth with a clean-looking piece of classic America muscle that won’t cost more than your house. Or the entire neighborhood, for that matter. So the Pick of the Week goes to this attractive […]

What caught my eye at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction

January has been a huge month for classic car auctions and with the Arizona events now history the hobby looks to the state of Florida for an annual event that just keeps on getting bigger. For me, there is nothing quite like walking around the tents of a major collector auction and checking out the […]

Driven: Infiniti Q60S Coupe Limited

Driven: Infiniti Q60S Coupe Limited

Infiniti’s Q60 has been with us for quite awhile, back even before the Nissan luxury brand decided a couple of years ago to preface the names of all its cars and SUVs with the letter Q. Though it’s never been entirely clear to me what Q has to do with Infiniti, that’s how the marketing […]

What I would like to take home from the RM auction

What I would like to take home from the RM auction

RM’s Arizona auction always has such a wide range of great cars: classics, cruisers, sports cars, muscle cars and, in recent years, Ferraris, lots of Ferraris. They all look great parked around the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, although the most-pricey numbers were nestled on the rug in the ballroom. So much […]

Window shopping with Nicole at Silver Auctions

Window shopping with Nicole at Silver Auctions

Going to the preview for the Silver Auction felt as relaxed as an average night at the Pavs or any local cruise-in. Owners were near their cars and happy to answer any questions, such as telling me the history of the vehicle. There also was a great mix of modern and classic imports, and domestics […]

What caught my eye at Silver Auctions

Three times each year, Mitch Silver and his merry band travel from Spokane, Washington, to Fountain Hills, Arizona, to stage an auction of classic cars for an audience that are happy to have a car that might not win any trophies at a fancy concours d’elegance, but would be a lot of fun to drive […]

What I’d like to take home from Gooding

Let’s pretend that money is no object. That’s what I did as I strolled around Gooding & Company’s upscale auction in Scottsdale picking out my favorite classic cars, the ones I’d like to take home.

Window shopping with Nicole at Russo and Steele

I didn’t really know what to expect Wednesday at Russo and Steele, but I was pleasantly surprised by the number of muscle cars available at the auction. Among the high-powered classic monsters were modern cars, and nearly everything had been modified from stock. Blame it on being a young enthusiast or a race car driver, […]
