With support from Car Street Journal and NICOclub.com, ClassicCars.com took over High Street in Phoenix to stage the inaugural Future Classics Car Show Monday evening.
All 100 spaces along the street through the upscale shopping district were filled with cars dating from the 1975 through 2005 model years.
And the audience was as diverse by age as the vehicles were from a variety of sources, with Asian, European and domestic brands well represented. Those attending the show were able to enjoy more than the vehicles as the shops and restaurants lining High Street extended hours and many provided discounts during the event.
“We are overwhelmed by the response to ClassicCars.com first Future Classics Car Show” said Roger Falcione, CEO and president of ClassicCars.com. “It is a true example of how the collector car hobby is alive and well with the next generation. The enthusiasm from the 100 plus car owners and the huge crowd

Land speed records. They instill excitement, innovation, and the drive as humanity to surpass the limits of what we as a race believe is possible. It’s the dream of exploration. To explore what isn’t known and to experience discovery, within ourselves and share them with others. Now take that notion and turn it completely upside down. Remove the one safe, comforting aspect of control and throw it out the window, relying solely on another’s shoulders, wisdom, and judgment. Envision that, and one will begin to see the monumental accomplishment and struggle Mike Newman has achieved.
Back in September 2013, Mike Newman set a very unique land speed record. He recorded a 182.12 MPH world record driving a Porsche 911 GT2 whilst blindfolded. Let that [...]
