January is still looking like a run toward "JAKE's CORNER" on Hwy 188 for lunch (open flame burgers and barely/malt/hops flavored water). The plan is for a Saturday January 25th run through the Mazatzals to the north and east. For the Phoenix and surrounding area, we will be leaving Chandler (yup Whole Foods parking lot) at about 9:30 - stopping at Fort McDowell Casino parking lot just off of Hwy 87 around 10:00 - plan on leaving their lot around 10:15 and pulling in to JAKE's about 11 - 11:30. The trip back can be through one the western shores of Lake Roosevelt and on toward Globe and Hwy 60 back into Phoenix or retrace the mountain curves back toward Scottsdale. It is roughly a 200 mile round trip. If you are joining from the Tucson area, the fast trip (according to MapQuest) is to join us at the Whole Foods parking via Hwy 10 and Loop 101. I believe the more scenic trip is up 177 to 77 into Globe, 70 and 60/70 west to 188 north. Either way is about a 300 plus a few mile run.
I am thinking that the April Event will be a cruise to Tucson for the all GM motorama at Quail Canyon. I was told the organizers would like to have a big 30th Anniversary Fiero display. They are trying to bring Mr John Schinella (part of the original Fiero design team) there as a VIP guest from Detroit. Plans and information will be forwarded as it becomes available to me. Keep the days around April 12th open if you can.http://www.arizonaautoscene...rama-all-gm-car-show
