Plenty of places offer a Cars and Coffee format in the Phoenix, AZ region. Show up in a vacant parking lot, check out some cars that you aren’t likely to see on too many roads, sip some lukewarm coffee and head back out with most of the day still available to you. You could even watch the departing cars and hope to see a dimwit crash his new car when he punches it on the drive out. See how it is done at High Street for March 2021.
Like I say there are plenty of places to check out the cars – until COVID-19 struck. Crowds and social distancing don’t mix. Some meets have had trouble getting city permits or landowner’s permission. But as things loosen up, the shows go on.
High Street Cars and Coffee
Highline Auto magazine has sponsored a show for a while, most recently at the Scottsdale Fashion Center, but for March 2021 they moved to the High Street complex. This setup involves a long tree-lined boulevard with plenty of street-side parking for the show cars. Some adjacent restaurants are open for business as well.
This month’s show had a nice collection of cars, some music from a DJ, some free Bang energy drinks and a vendor was selling donuts too. Nice vibe but even with security in the area, probably less than 50% were wearing masks.
Cars at High Street Cars and Coffee
Cars varied from a Koenissegg to Corvettes, McLarens to Porsche’s. There were even some classics and some down-low land yachts. Not to mention an older Bronco along with a Bronco Sport for an interesting comparison.
Not sure if this was a one-time location change or a permanent move. Spectator parking filled up fast along the east side of the area and many folks had to park in a dirt lot, just FYI.
