Each of the last 27 years, vintage car enthusiasts have convened in the American Southwest for a truly remarkable event – the Copperstate 1000 rally. This year, over the course of four days in early April, 82 drivers, co-drivers, and their prized automobiles took to the roads of Arizona, from Tempe north to Flagstaff, then north to Page, back south to Sedona, north again to the Grand Canyon, west to the small town of Bagdad, and finally back south to Scottsdale. Through desert and pine forest, and along snowy mountain ranges and canyons, the 2017 course offered up drastic changes in climate and plenty of breathtaking scenery.
In partnership with our friends at Montblanc, we were fortunate to be able to document the 2017 Copperstate 1000, and to share it with you. Along with Montblanc, we'd also like to thank the event's organizer, the Men's Arts Council of Phoenix Art Museum, for letting us follow along, as well as all of the drivers for putting up with our omnipresent cameras and our drone overhead. We hope you enjoy our look at the 2017 Copperstate 1000.
