Event scheduled for April 11 in Phoenix


Think your car has what it takes to compete against some of the best builds in the west coast? Want to win one of the coveted crystal-piston trophies? Well, the 2021 Future Collector Car Show is accepting vehicle applications for all years, makes, models, and conditions.

Only 125 of the most outstanding applicants will be selected for display April 11, 2021 in the event being staged for the sixth year by ClassicCars.com at High Street in Phoenix.

“Our focus for the show is quality over quantity to ensure that we provide the highest quality stage for these owners to compete on,” said Rebecca Nguyen, event coordinator for the Future Collector Car Show. “The new award categories are also a representation of how we are achieving that.”

In 2020, more than 12,000 people attended the event, which was held in January. A second version, the inaugural Virtual Future Collector Car Show, was staged in August.

Aiming to inspire future generations of car lovers, the Future Collector Car show brings together automotive enthusiasts of all ages and interests by connecting them through their shared petrol-fueled interests.

Each vehicle at the show will be judged at a concours level by some of the most respected names in the automotive world. Judges include the Petersen Automotive Museum’s chief historian, Leslie Kendall; renowned car culture and automotive photographer Larry Chen; head judge Andy Reid and the Classic Cars Journal editorial team.

The 2021 Best of Show winner will win a track day and experience at Inde Motorsports Ranch on their dynamic members-only track in Tucson, AZ.
