For the first time, the Future Collector Car Show presented by Meguiar’s will be held on the Polo Field at WestWorld of Scottsdale as a part of Barrett-Jackson’s nine-day flagship event.
The Future Collector Car Show (FCCS) presented by Meguiar’s is a one-day, family-friendly, concours-style event featuring vehicles that best represent the future of the collector car hobby, with the goal of celebrating the cars we love today and the future collectibles of tomorrow.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Meguiar’s as the presenting sponsor for the first FCCS at Barrett-Jackson later this month,” said Peter Lubell, vice president of corporate partnerships for Barrett-Jackson. “We are always looking for innovative ways to engage the entire collector car hobby and to create new, exciting elements at each of our events. The addition of FCCS to our Scottsdale Auction is a fantastic way to celebrate the future of this hobby and we’re proud to have great partners like Meguiar’s that share the same enthusiasm and vision for its growth.”
At FCCS, spectators will enjoy a variety of vehicles ranging from highly modified custom builds to original and perfectly preserved rides, effectively creating an experience where generations of vehicle owners can find common ground in their love of future collectibles.
“At Meguiar’s, our mission is to fuel the passion people have for their cars,” said Tony D’Amato, manager of experiential marketing and public relations for Meguiar’s. “Car shows are about community, and it’s great to see an event like FCCS bring people of all ages together and embrace the next generation of car enthusiasts. We are thrilled to support Barrett-Jackson and the car lovers of tomorrow at this event.”
