Russo and Steele Collector Automobile Auctions returns to Scottsdale January 16 through 20, 2019, at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Locally founded, owned and operated in Scottsdale, Ariz., Russo and Steele has built a widely respected reputation as “The World’s Most Exciting Collector Automobile Auction” over nearly two decades. Every year since the auction’s debut, the event manages to attract the most complete collection of fine collector automobiles available anywhere during Arizona Car Week. The annual auction will feature its well-established “auction in the round” format with more than 800 cars crossing the block across the five-day event. Russo and Steele places buyers, sellers and enthusiastic spectators up close and personal with the very best in European Sports, American Muscle, Hot Rods and Customs.
The event’s layout incorporates a premium concourse-style experience for attendees, designed to showcase the auction’s remarkably diverse range of high-quality offerings. The Main Auction Pavilion is on 100 percent hard surface asphalt, boasting a 13,000 square-foot space and a state-of-the art climate controlled Vendor Pavilion. The pavilion hosts more than 130 vendors — including a food court-style seating area for the Food Truck Showcase, a jumbotron streaming the live auction and direct access to the Main Auction Pavilion with all of the action.
Salt River Fields at Talking Stick’s highly centralized and easily accessible location, right off the Loop 101 puts Russo and Steele directly at the epicenter of all the action during Arizona Car Week.
“It’s our third year at Salt River Fields, and our 19th in Scottsdale. We’re pleased to continue to make this incredible experience even better in 2019,” says Drew Alcazar, auction president and CEO. “Everything we do is all a constant effort to better service the increasing number of vehicles offered this year and our ever-growing legion of visitors,”
