Car Show Scene Heats Up as Temperatures Rise

Family Friendly Events Fun for All

As the weather warms into the friendly, but not scorching, beautiful days of an Arizona spring, a number of car shows are the perfect opportunity for getting outside and enjoying the climate. The First Friday of every month is an opportunity to see some classic cars at the 5 and Diner at 5220 N. 16th Street in Phoenix. Live music and a sock hop help get the festivities rocking promptly at 6 p.m. If you’re looking for a future classic to invest in, check out any of the Chapman Arizona dealerships for a new or gently used muscle car.
