Cars and Coffee, March 2016

For the first time in nearly a year and a half, I finally made it to the Scottsdale Cars and Coffee. It’s an event I was at at the very beginning and never missed for over three years. But as life got busy and nights got late, it became increasingly difficult to force myself out of bed before sunrise and make the 30 minute drive to Scottsdale. But, I finally made that trip again and I’m very glad I did. Not only did I see a lot of familiar faces, but also a lot of wonderful cars. When I first started going almost nine years ago, it was a small group of about 20 cars and virtually no “spectators”. I was just a handful of people taking photos and back then it was difficult NOT to see...

Scottsdale Pavilions, June 15th 2013

Well, after over three and a half years of passing on the weekly Scottsdale Pavilions car show, I finally made my way back out there. I used to be a very, very regular attendee, always snapping away. For several years I made it almost every week but have found it more difficult to make it out and while the turnout was a little thin due to the heat, I was still very pleased with what I saw. Highlights included a nice Nissan GTR, McLaren MP4-12C, a pair of wild street-legal rock crawlers and others. Once the temps cool down a bit, I’ll definitely be back out there again and will try to make it a more regular occurrence once again.

Paragon – Acura NSX

When Japanese cars first started landing on U.S. soil, they were little more than cheap, economical cars that existed to get you where you needed to go and little else. Useful, but boring. Until the introduction of the Datsun 240Z and Toyota 2000GT, Japanese cars didn’t even register on the sports car market, let alone compete in it. It took years for these now classics to fight their way to recognition, but even after these cars, their successors and other Japanese offerings gained clout and became some of the premier options for high performance motoring, there was still something missing: The Japanese supercar. Enter our dashing protagonist. Going by the numbers, the NSX is far off current supercar...
