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.

“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.
