2001-2019...18 YEARS!

From it's beginning in 2001 as a couple of guys getting coffee, to the current monthly gathering drawing hundreds of truly amazing cars, Scuderia Southwest is a group of people who share a common interest in great automobiles.  We put on a few car events, organize a few drives, pull a few g's on the track, and even congregate for a good meal.

We love all cars but have a particular passion for rare exotic, high performance and collector cars and our activities typically reflect that.  From the 1962 250 GTO to the latest 812 Superfast, we are passionate about Ferraris.  From the 1972 Miura to the latest Aventador SV, we love Lamborghinis.  The Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing and SLS AMG, McLaren 675LT, Shelby Cobra, D & E-type Jags, and Ford GT are just a few of the special cars we keep in our garages.   If you're a car guy or gal, come on out and let's share some coffee, cool stories, and tech talk!

Our Leadership Team

Steve Mraovic

Steve is the godfather of our team. He, and a few friends, started this endeavor in the summer of 2001. His passion for exotic cars led to our very existence. Steve's expertise and craftsmanship are respected throughout the exotic collector world. We once saw him remove the engine from a Testarossa in 23 seconds, while blindfolded, and holding a small child in one arm. You'll find Steve's number in the address book of serious collectors everywhere.



Rus Lack

Rus is responsible for the event logistics and planning of our little entity.  He makes sure the trains run on time and that each one actually has a conductor.  And although it's very hard, he facilitates our meetings and actually makes us get through an agenda before we finish. 






Ethan Golf

Ethan has a few sandwich shops so he takes care of our real estate agreements. They must been pretty good sandwiches because today Ethan has a 70th anniversary 488 Spyder and a 458 Speciale Aperta. Nowadays he has branched out into more discerning restaurants and become a stickler for presentation, whether it's resting on a plate or parked in a row. Watch out if you try parking at one of our events and you're not at just the precise angle.


Peter Volny

Peter finds and works with our sponsors, lassos tv and newspaper reporters, and generally gets others excited about our activities...all while in a drunken stupor.

Although he claims he has completely lost his accent, Peter comes from Australia where he graduated in the top 100% of his class at one of the country's top remedial facilities. He was subsequently extradited from Australia in 1971 for an alleged crime involving sheep.

Peter raced cars very unsuccessfully before going into the advertising and marketing business. He retired and moved to Arizona and is the founder of Concours in the Hills. Peter has a Ferrari Daytona, Ford GT and Maserati Gran Turismo.


David Crofford

David strings together the wires and writes the code that allows for the magical digital bits to come to you as words and pictures. This includes maintaining membership databases, web site, email, and social media interaction with Twitter, FaceBook, Instagram, Flickr, etc. He also handles the financials for our little endeavor.

After 30 years in the IT business, David had a mental breakdown and went to go live in a tree in the woods. He was quite burdensome to the gnomes that lived there. After a while, to get him to leave, they said they would grant him a wish...and so, today, you can see him tooling around in a 458 Speciale.
