So, I've had a trip out to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, been here since Thursday. And I have completely immersed myself in the car culture out here, and it is AMAZING!!! I might not come back east haha.

I got to drive a gorgeous 1992 Acura NSX for a couple hours, have been to a huge weekly cruise in, and wandered around a massive desert junkyard full of rust free classic American cars. I've had an incredible time and taken so many photos, I thought you guys might like to see them. Here's the link to the full album on Flickr, and some of my favorites posted down below...

Oh my! I now have an(other) excuse to go back to Arizona! Great shots, and I think I could move into that junkyard!

Yeah that flower car was so cool haha, definitely the coolest thing in the yard. One of the only rusty cars I saw in there though, sadly.

I think the Caddy is too far gone to be restored.

I took these pictures last year from the same car.

As a lifelong Michigan resident, it always amazes me to see 50 plus year old cars that are completely rust free. Surprising that some of those in the salvage yard have not been snapped up for restoration yet.
