Pavilions Car Show Reelin’ and a-Rockin’

The weekly event grows exponentially during Auction Week


Every Saturday afternoon, on the east side of Scottsdale, Arizona, you’ll find the Pavilions Rock ‘n Roll Car Show. Held at the Pavilions at Talking Stick shopping center, this weekly event is where locals park their vehicles and pull out a chair to socialize with themselves and spectators alike.

On average, 250-500 cars will show up but, during Auction Week, the turnout balloons. For this very reason, we at the Journal stole away from Barrett-Jackson to see what was happening at this happening. Best of all, if you’re not tied to the auction, you can linger and see what comes and goes over the several hours of the event, as it’s not a static show.

Some notable cars were a quintet of AMCs, including both paint schemes of the SC/Rambler, a Rebel Machine, an SS/AMX and an extremely rare Trans Am Javelin; a 1970 Malibu with a 330-horsepower 402 (and 400 badges — how confusing!); a Brazilian Volkswagen; and a supercharged Studebaker Lark Daytona with a supercharged R2 289. Take a gander at the eclecticism and, remember, if you are in town for Auction Week next year, you owe it to yourself to spend time at the Pavilions (as if you really need to see more cars!).

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
