    Proper (me, Phil) and Watto are thinking of trying an early morning run on August 5th from Tucson to Scottsdale to get to Cars & Coffee by 7AM.
    FB C&C site - ... https://www.scuderiasouthwest.com/motorsports-gathering/
    This run will be highly dependent on the weather forecast the night before.

    It's first Saturdays, and is supposed to be really good. If we don't do it August, we'll try again in October. Watto and I met up for the Tucson C&C last month.

    Scottsdale C&C was great ...considering it was August in Phoenix :Flame: 105°F → 40°C
    Watto and I hit the road at 5AM in Tucson which put us walking around at 7:30. Glad we were early because the heat started to chase half the cars away by 8:30 or so. Riding the back roads home with a stop for lunch along the way was great.
    Scottsdale is always first Saturdays if anyone wants to check it out. Tucson's C&C is always 2nd Saturdays. Scottsdale semi-organizes cars by nationality, and has a lot of motorcycles display (~30), where Tucson's show is a little smaller and not as organized, and with less bikes.
    Bummer was that I took many 4 second video clips of the cool cars so I would have a good collection in only a 1 minute video, but when I got home I found the memory card had not been fully clicked in. But this Ferrari 458 was a local Creative Bespoke one-off custom and I clicked a couple phone pics - - -

    Awesome you put this out there, invited others, and you guys were able to go!
    Thanks for the sweet pics of what you had!

    We have so many awesome members here that more rides like this could easily happen.
    Sweet work making it so in your area!

    Are you planning to do another one? Hope more of you are able to go if you do!
    I'd love to go, but I'll be trapped in my classroom closet 1,000 miles away...
