If you live or will be visiting the Phoenix area on Saturday, March 7, 2015, stop by Greasewood Flat at 2:00 p.m. Every year designers and others associated with automobile design get together and swap stories. Photos from the last two years are attached to this post. Past attendees have included Bernie and Sue Smith, George Prentice, Ron Knopka, Bruce and Phyllis Wheeler, Ron and Pat Will, Tony Balthasar, Bob and Diane Ackerman, George and Elaine Anderson, Ron Boorman, Don and Carol Daharsh, Fred and Vyner Daniels, Bill and Joann Dayton, Bill and Carolyn Gest, Terrie Grasse, John and Julie Homan, Ray and Gloria Koenig, Susan and Ian Knocker, Bob and Bobbie Marcks, Mick and Suzie Myal, Bob and Gayila Riley, Gary and Louise Smith. I’ve probably missed some names, but not on purpose.
Greasewood Flat is a rustic, open air “establishment” with an old west flavor. It is surprisingly located in a very affluent area in North Scottsdale. Not so surprising is that they will close at the end of March, 2015, probably to make way for more million dollar homes. Greasewood Flats is located at 27375 N. Alma School Parkway, Scottsdale, AZ 85262.
Also coming up this month at the Scottsdale Pavilions, the Oldsmobile Club of Arizona is having its annual show on Saturday morning March 28 (followed by the weekly Pavilions car show), and the Buick-Olds-Pontiac Show is on Sunday, March 29.
