An update from Scuderia Southwest...

We’ve finally gotten past the heat and the weather is great. We had another fantastic turnout last Saturday and you can see some pictures in our photo gallery here:

The photos for the past two years have just been amazing and again we’d like to thank David Urbanic for being our official photographer. David has done a great job and we’re sad to announce that we’ll be losing him. David has a new job that is taking him to Maryland. I’m sure the car season in Maryland is much shorter than Arizona so he’ll have to figure out what to do during those winter months…my bet is that he continues to watch our photo gallery to see the sweet cars in our awesome weather! Again, thanks David!

For December, we’ve decided to repeat last December’s great display - Over 200MPH Cars! We’ll line up all those cars that have an official published top speed of greater than 200mph. We think last year’s lineup was incredible and if you missed it, here’s your chance to see it.

We’ll also have several holiday-related fundraisers and donation activities going on throughout December. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Youth Assistance Foundation will be at our December 1st event with their “Stuff the booking van” toy drive. Bring a toy or two on that day to contribute!

Don’t forget that Concours in the Hills is coming in February and you can sign up today.

I’d like to take a little time to clear up some confusion among those that are new to our little gathering. Every week we receive emails, text and facebook messages, and even phone calls asking where our event is going to be for that particular weekend. We don’t do an event every weekend. The term “cars and coffee” is a generic term and hundreds of people use it for many events around the country and here in the greater Phoenix area. Our event is on the first Saturday every month - rain or shine, never cancelled and never rescheduled. Many people know us as Scottsdale Cars and Coffee, and we maintain a Facebook Page with that name. Our company name is Scuderia Southwest LLC and our Monthly event is “Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering - the best cars and coffee event in the country.” What started in 2001 as a couple of guys getting coffee on Saturday mornings grew to a group of guys congregating at Gainey Village. After spending years at Gainey Village we were bursting at the seams and so in April 2016 we moved out to our current Scottsdale 101 location where we now utilize nearly 1000 parking spaces. We have done in the past, and continue to do, other car-related events that are not cars and coffee events. One of those events as mentioned above is our annual Concours in the Hills, a large fundraising event held on the grass around the lake in Fountain Hills.

Hot info for our September event!!!

Hot info for our September event!!!

Call for cars

The theme for September is "Pairs: Old & New."  We'll be setting up pairs of cars from different generations.  Examples would be an older Porsche 356 and a new 918, or a 60's era Mustang GT350 paired with a current version.  We have several models lined up already, but here's a list of what we're still looking for:
C7 Corvette ZR1
Old and new Mustang GT 350
Old and new Lamborghini (Countach/Aventador)
Old and new Porsche (356/918)
Older Aston Martin
Jaguar (E-Type and Current F-type)
Mercedes 300SL
Older generation Alfa Romeo

Send a note to Peter - if you've got something above or If you've got an idea for any other interesting pairs.

Heads Up - Another parking lot shuffle!

The property management has given us the ok to move back to our pre-summer configuration.  This will eliminate our current problem where people need to walk across an active driveway to get between parking areas.  We will also go back to blocking one end of the aisles.  All cars will enter on the east and west sides and proceed north to the parking entrance areas.  This is similar to before except we will have two entrances instead of one.  We've had great attendance during the summer but there will only be more cars and people as we get into the cooler months.

Here's a parking lot map.  You can also see it along with other information on our website at:

And don't forget, we collect magazines for the VA Hospital every month.  Any kind of magazine works.  Just drop them with any of the event helpers.

We'll see you Saturday!

Saturday February 9, 2019
Fountain Park, Fountain Hills, AZ

Last February we had 749 cars, a Cobra and a Viper attack helicopter on display. The Cobra is coming back and we are negotiating to get other military and private helicopters too.

For 2019 we are once again expanding our display area so there will be lots more space between the cars, more food trucks, more washrooms, more to see and more fun!

We start doing the show layout months before and are in the park the whole week before the show marking up where each brand will go, where each sponsor and food truck goes, so we would really appreciate your help by registering early.

This is not a formal "white gloves" concours but rather an informal and fun car show for both imports and domestics, so come out and enjoy yourself in what is without a doubt the most beautiful setting for a car show in the state, and best of all it’s on grass with lots of room between the cars. It is supported by most of the car clubs in the valley. Last time we raised over $117,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We have now committed to raise $500,000 to build a very special playroom for the Oncology Department.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor and having a display, please contact me.

It was hot....and the weather was a little warm too!

Hot cars beats hot weather at the Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering...the country's BEST cars and coffee!
We always worry a little what the participation will be like during the dog days of summer, but we continue to be pleasantly surprised.  We still had over 500 cars and over 2000 people show up this past Saturday.  Our feature this month was high performance German sedans and we had a great assortment of AMG series Mercedes Benz, M-class Beemers, and S and RS versions of Audi.  Of course there were also the new and vintage versions of everything else...from the silver Ferrari Dino, the various GTR's, Aventadors, 488's, E-type Jaguars, Shelby's, Corvettes, and vintage trucks.  The Scottsdale/Phoenix area has the greatest concentration of cars and car lovers anywhere and the know where to congregate on the first Saturday every month.
