The Arizona Region celebrated its first live event with two fantastic garage tours. Saturday, October 2nd, greeted members with a beautiful, sunny day as we gathered at our first stop in Scottsdale. Close to 25 members and guests enjoyed the excellent hospitality of Mike and Stacey Lovell at their exceptional garage/museum. A generous spread of muffins, coffee, and bagels was on hand to start off the day. Mike grew up around cars, and a few in the collection represent the top-level restoration skills of him and his Dad. Some in the club might recognize Gordon Apker's old 1932 Packard 900, now lovingly cared for by the Lovells. It was hard to leave the first garage, but our second stop did not disappoint.
