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!

Cruise on Central Car Show and Cruise-In October 2014

2014 Fall Cruise on Central

2014 Fall Cruise on Central

To call the Cruise on Central a big event would be a gross understatement, as there were literally hundreds upon hundreds of cool, and usually immaculate, cars from every era, and every specialized interest, both out on Central Avenue and on display. The weather was spectacular, warm but not too warm, and of course there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. The biennial Cruise on Central, which is held on the second Saturday of April and October, draws collectors, enthusiasts, spectators, and cruisers from throughout Arizona and beyond, for what is regarded as one of the state’s oldest and best cruise-in events.
