As promised yesterday. For the people skimming Oppo, this post contains lots of Mustangs, 3 Ford GTs, some old Volvos, a handful of Vdub, old muscle, a few Miatas, a G8 ST and more. Please excuse the quality of some of the photos, it was really hard to shoot on my iPotato, plus the setting sun didn't make things easier, and the walking people, but perhaps most importantly, I don't know what I'm doing. Onto the photos!

The show took place at this retro(ish) McDonalds and was really well organized. Turns out it happens every Saturday, but sadly this will be my first and last time attending (at least until next winter).

(not my photo, found on internets)

First thing I saw when I got there were these Miata, turns out they were not part of the show, but just chilling in the parking lot.

Hello sleeper, whatchu got under there?

03/22/2014 Scottsdale McDonald's Rock n Roll Car Show ultra mega photo dump w/ comments

I don't know if this was real or a replica, I couldn't get an answer out of the owner. Later on he would do slow laps of the show in his car, making sure everyone saw how cool he was.

Row upon row of Mustangs. Can't say I was too fond of the crowd, and don't think I'd park my 5.0 with all the others if I had it at the show.

03/22/2014 Scottsdale McDonald's Rock n Roll Car Show ultra mega photo dump w/ comments

2 Boss 302s. One on gross wheels.

The only early 70s first gen Mustang I could find. I still think its very underrated lookswise.

I liked that fog lamp arrangement, but I can't imagine what it does to the cooling airflow.

03/22/2014 Scottsdale McDonald's Rock n Roll Car Show ultra mega photo dump w/ comments

Probably the only modified Miata in the show itself I liked (I'll explain later).

03/22/2014 Scottsdale McDonald's Rock n Roll Car Show ultra mega photo dump w/ comments

Mmmm. GT. Found my boss's signature on one of the cross braces in the engine bay (my boss was the Vehicle Dynamics supervisor for the GT program). The owners of all 3 GTs at the show were really chill down to Earth people and a real pleasure to talk to. They really knew their stuff about their cars and were more than happy to share knowledge with others.

At this point I had circled around back to the Volvos. The show was very dynamics and there were cars coming and going constantly, so onto round 2!

Can't say I'm too fond of the continental kits - they ruin the lines too much, but I do love the colors.

No, those are not fog lights. Yes, they are turbos. They're currently in the mid 40s boost wise, but she said the car can take 50psi.

While I was listening to the Mustang owner talk about her car this Challenger showed up. I didn't give it much attention while it was rolling in, but while it was parking I heard something, looked over and saw the cut outs in the bumper.

This guy wasn't part of the show, but while walking around that red hit the corner of my eye, and I immediately knew it was an R.

The 2nd GT showed up. This thing sounded insane (see videos in link at the top of the page). Its a Heffner Twin Turbo GT, putting down about 850hp when its tuned for the street. And its funny how small of a world this is. The girlfriend of the owner of this GT grew up in the same tiny town in New Hampshire that I used to spend all my summers in.

These old trucks are pretty sweet. This one had a very mean sounding powerplant, but the owner didn't pop the hood.

At this point I went in to eat. Figured I'd grab some food at the McDonalds if it helps them fund these shows. When I came out the crowd had totally changed. All the older folks started leaving, and the young crowed rolled in. Most of the classic cars were being replaced with riced tuners. The first thing I saw coming out of the McDonalds was a huge crowed of Vdub.

These were still here, and made for a awesome photo opportunity. I wish the Skyliner's top was down though.

And a 3rd GT showed up. The owner of this own was much younger. The other 2 owners were probably in their 50s, this guy was in his mid-late 30s.

Didn't quite understand this display. Ok, so you have an M3 convertible. Big deal? A modern hardtop convertible isn't anything special dude.

A shot of the younger crowd. This row was mostly filled with Corvettes earlier.

And the last shot before my phone died. Going to mini rant for those of you that made it this far.

So I'm 24, and if you just go by age, I should be hanging out with this group, but I don't. Why? During the first 3 hours of this show, everyone respected each others cars. People were inquisitive, owners were more than happy to share their knowledge. Everyone was kind and courteous and it was a nice family environment filled with people who loved cars of every shape and form. After dinner though, the lot was filled with screaming, engine revving for no reason, swearing, littering and just general douchebaggery. I'm not commenting on the taste of cars here, everyone is into their own thing, you want to put fart cannons on your Accord, go for it, but why can't these guys just respect each others cars. One guy brought a slammed stanced scraping stickerbombed E60 M5 (I'm not kidding), and was mocking the riced Civic guys. A kid in daddy's 335i was making fun of a stock Miata driver for nothing having something nicer. The riced Subaru guys were yelling at the Vdub crowd. Common. I appreciate the fact that all these guys are into cars, even if those cars are ones I wouldn't touch with a 20 foot pole, but this kind of behavior is what will ruin these shows for everyone else.

(The row pictured here was the Mustang row pictured way above. My phone died less than 2 minutes after taking this shot, and I left a minute after that, theoretically the show was scheduled to go on for another 2 hours, but I can only imagine how it went as the night went on.)

Oh, and one more comment. I wore my favorite Saab shirt. There wasn't a single Saab there in the 4 hours I was hanging around. I am disappointed.
