Arizona 2020: Future Collector Car Show kicks off auction week | ClassicCars.com Journal


The world is changing. What constitutes a “classic” or collector car is changing. The modes of how cars are shown are changing, too. Clearly car culture is gaining momentum with the next generation of enthusiasts, and it’s not just about 1957 Chevys and butch-waxed hair anymore. Nor is it just about the fairways and sun hats of a concours d’elegance.

Roger Falcione, an enthusiast, visionary and chief executive of The Collector Car Network, which owns ClassicCars.com, had seen classic car shows and also had been exposed to sport tuner events. The preverbal lightbulb went off.

Judge Andy Reid and Illinois-based car restorer John Saccameno check out an 80s Ferrari at the High Street show.

“I knew that the collector car market was on the verge of a shift,” Falcione said. “There are still the traditional enthusiasts and collectors, but there is also a burgeoning group who have their own ‘hero cars’ they admire. The future of the classic car hobby is in good hands.”

Taking the best practices from what he saw at so many different events, Falcione started his own show, the Future Classics Car Show – now known as the Future Collector Car Show.

By design, the event displays, judges and awards cars built after 1974. As has been acknowledged by many collectors, many OEMs are producing “instant classics,” cars that are so anticipated and admired in the marketplace they immediately jump in value without the aging process that so many automobiles have had to endure. Expect to see cars like this, tuner culture and much, much more.

Crowd-pleasing cars, good food and fashion highlight the 2020 FCCS.

At the show, which features more than 150 cars and upwards of 5,000 spectators will have everything from Acuras to Aston Martins, Ferraris to BMWs and everything in between. The diverse car array is a product of passion and sentimentality – which has driven car culture from its very beginnings.

Judging crosses nine categories: Best of Show; Best Modified Vehicle (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place); Best Preserved; Best Restored – Presented by Barrett-Jackson; Rookie of the Year (16-25 owners age); Fan Favorite! – Spectators may vote on the people’s choice; Students Choice sponsored by Universal Technical Institute, Best Trunk sponsored by Slime, Best Ford – Presented by Steeda Performance Vehicles.

Keeping with a family friendly environment, the show includes a Stylist Competition and Fashion Show presented by Luxe and City, on-site pet adoptions, and Kid Zone presented by the official charity, Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Period correct, modified and custom vehicles feature prominently at FCCS.

Automotive judging will be done by historian and veteran concours judge Andy Reid along with celebrity judges including Formula Drift Judge Ryan Lanteigne, Fielding Shredder, who was a Top-3 finisher on the popular Netflix series, Hyperdrive, and sponsored Formula Drift Pro2 driver Andrew Schulte.

At the helm of the show is a driven, enthusiast, millennial, Rebecca Nguyen, hired by Falcione in the show’s first year. Her knowledge of the youth market has been a boon to the show’s success.

Nguyen said,”The Future Collector Car Show is meant to be an all inclusive event that encourages attendees and participants to engage with each other no matter what type, or level enthusiast as well as what their niche may be.

“Every year has been bigger and better than the previous one with new engaging aspects to make the show welcoming to new, old, and current enthusiasts of any kind.  I hope to bring the show to another state this year.”

The show is scheduled for noon to 6 p.m. on January 12 at High Street, an upscale shopping district in the Desert Ridge area of Phoenix north of the 101 Freeway.  For more information visit the event website.

Car Culture, fashion, fashion show, Future Collector Car Show

Fashion and cars come together at Future Collectors Car Show | ClassicCars.com Journal


Automotive
styling and fashion design both involve the use of textiles, with materials
chosen, cut and stitched with specific purposes in mind, whether to clothe a
vehicle’s interior or a human body.

With that in mind, ClassicCars.com and Luxe and City are combining for a special feature during the 5th annual Future Collectors Car Show. Luxe and City, a creative agency and members’ club for the arts and cultural industries, will stage its Style Comp: Future Classic “Collections” on the High Street runway during the car show on January 12.

Luxe and City creates events and environments to showcase innovative individuals while demonstrating how creative industries fit and work together. Through business, community, design and events, Luxe and City provides special services to members and clients, supporting growth within the fashion industry.

“Arizona
is home base for us and we’re always looking for opportunities to support those
local brands,” said ClassicCars.com chief executive Roger Falcione.

“Luxe
and City is engaging a new generation of creative professionals by giving them
a platform to highlight their capabilities, exactly like our show.  Collaborating with their team has given us
another opportunity to highlight creative and passionate people like the owners
of the show cars.”

Among annual Style Comp, Luxe and City hosts other challenges throughout the year

The 3rd annual Style Comp will feature seven local stylists and seven different styling themes, though each stylist is required to inspire one model’s presentation based on the 2019 Future Collectors Car Show Best of Show-winning 2004 Subaru WRX STi owned by John Darling.  The idea is to demonstrate how to transition design elements from one industry to another.

The competing stylists and their themes include:

Hannah Abrigg – @slayybrigg – 1980s

Randi England – @mozzerati – Futuristic 

Joseph Cruz – @kayseeareus – 1970s

Endira Diaz – – @endira – 1990s

Brenton Jones – @ brenton_joness – Futuristic

Shannon Campbell – @shancamp – 1920s

Berly Baray – @berlybaray -1960s

Street that will be transformed into a fashion runway

Models will walk the runway on the main road at the High Street commercial district, where the winner will be chosen in a vote of show attendees and a panel of expert judges. Among the judges will be Jazmine Nash, 2019 Style Comp winner and creative director of House of Gaia.

Among the prizes for the winning stylist is a spot in Phoenix Fashion Week’s Spring Show in March. 

The
style competition on January 12 is scheduled for 2 p.m.
