Phoenix Gay Pride Festival and Parade April 2017

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Our long-standing tradition of participating in community events continued this year, with Central AZ members providing a bumper crop of over a dozen vehicles in procession up North 3rd Street on a sunny and warm edition of the 2017 Phoenix Pride Parade.

Vehicles participating ran from new to quite old, reinforcing our message that our club is not exclusively ‘classics’, rather an enjoyment of all vehicles.

In addition to the LCC procession of cars, we provided the Pride committee with three convertibles that carried dignitaries as lead vehicles in the parade, including the Celebrity Grand Marshall, the incomparable Belinda Carlisle!

VARIETY was the operative adjective as we covered the bases with the oldest (Erik’s 1930 Ford Model A to the newest (John’s 2012 Fiat Abarth), a truck (Howard’s Jeep Renegade), and a cross-section of convertible, sedan, sportscar, and more! This was an accurate representation of the vehicles owned by members and sent a message that our club is not exclusively ‘classics’, rather an enjoyment of all vehicles.
