A Quick Look Back: November 9th, 2013 Apr10

A Quick Look Back: November 9th, 2013

With the plethora of automotive events that go on in the Phoenix Valley, it’s not unusual for me attend an event, fill up a memory card or two and then do nothing with the photos due to getting caught up with other events, shoots or something else. I especially tend to do this when multiple events fall on the same day, like the Paradise Valley Veterans Appreciation Vintage Car Show and Deafening Horsepower Charity Car Show did back in early November. So every now and then, I realize I have these photos piled up in the corners of my hard drives and start digging through them. Paradise Valley Veterans Appreciation Vintage Car Show 2013 Always one of my favorite events of the year, this small, quiet event...

Whenever I’m running around the Phoenix Valley I always keep my eyes peeled for just anything automotive that’s even a little interesting and, if it’s interesting enough, I always try to snap a pic. Whether I’m lucky enough to have my dSLR on me or if I’m stuck...

Upcoming: Windgate Ranch Festival of Speed 2014 Feb22

Upcoming: Windgate Ranch Festival of Speed 2014

Well, it’s almost that time again. This time next month I’ll be making my annual trip over to Windgate Ranch for the Festival of Speed, one of my very favorite events of the entire year. Since the inaugural event back in 2009 it’s never disappointed and always has a surprise or two waiting to be seen. Speaking of that, word is this year will feature a bit of an oddball… The original George Barris built Batmobile from the 1966-1968 television series (a car that last sold at Barrett-Jackson in 2013 for a whopping $4.62M). Below is a few highlights from previous years, along with links to the full galleries. Check out the following flyer or visit http://www.scuderiasw.com for more...

2014 Scottsdale Auction Wrap-Up Jan28

2014 Scottsdale Auction Wrap-Up

2014 proved to be a great year for the annual Arizona auto auctions. Not only did total sales increase by 11% from 2013 to a staggering $249M, but the stunning ’58 Ferrari California Spyder, sold by RM Auctions, set a new Arizona sales record at $8.8M after buyer’s premium. This is a fact I take a little pride in, considering I had the honor of shooting said car for RM (along with the 9th highest seller, the Porsche 718 RS 61 Spyder) on sunny afternoon in Fountain Hills, AZ. Below is a full list of the top ten sales from all auction houses, along with their sales prices after buyer’s premium. That big jump in total sales didn’t just come from an increase in volume, either. While the...

One thing I used to do with some regularity is post random sightings from around the valley that I see in my daily commute. Living where I do there’s no shortage of exotics, classic cars, hot rods, motorcycles, oddities… you name it, really, and I’m trying to get back in the...

Daily Sightings

So I’ve decided to finally jump on board the Instagram train.  Have been on it for a bit now, but have been trying to use it as much as possible lately.  My intent isn’t to  use it for posting old photos or anything, but more as a way to post random daily sightings or whatever...
