Nov 27, 2022 - Welcome to ‘Mug Shots’, where we take some time to get to learn more about the spectacular vehicles attending Mesa Cars & Coffee!

If you come to Mesa Cars & Coffee you are bound to find a few cool Corvettes spanning many generations, but Steve Broner’s 2017 Z06 Convertible is a great example of one of the last front-engine Corvettes produced and the perfect cruiser for our incoming cooler Arizona weather!   A retired Navy veteran, Steve has always had a love for cars since he was a kid. 

He purchased his Z06 Convertible in the Spring of 2021 and immediately began attending local car shows with it.  When asked what he enjoyed most about coming out to Mesa Cars & Coffee, Steve replied “I enjoy seeing the cars and talking to the owners, spending time with like-minded people, and making new friends.”  We thank Steve for bringing his Black Rose Metallic C7 Corvette out for everyone to enjoy and congratulate his win as November’s Mug Shot!

Oct 21, 2022 - Welcome to ‘Mug Shots’, where we take some time to get to learn more about the spectacular vehicles attending Mesa Cars & Coffee!

Our first ever Mug Shots feature has probably seen a fair share of them since it’s a real retired police car.  Evan Polasky’s 1976 Plymouth Fury is a piece of moving automotive history.  Originally a detective car in Oregon, the car now looks exactly how Scottsdale Police Department's patrol cars looked in the 1970s.  Since Evan is a Crime Prevention Officer with Scottsdale Police Department, he had help from old photos and retired officers to make sure his recreation is as accurate as possible.  Most of the equipment on the car is even original!

    

This Fury has an original police equipment package to help it outpace the goons.  "It's got a cop motor...cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks.  It's a model made before catalytic converters, so it'll run good on regular gas." Said Polasky.  After the car made its way to Arizona from Oregon Evan began the process of repainting the car from green to blue and white, the colors used for Scottsdale Police Department during the 70’s. 

 

He’s owned the car for a decade now and loves seeing the joy it brings when people catch it at local car shows, along with hearing and sharing stories.  While we’re sure a few of our Mesa Cars & Coffee friends may have seen a car like this in their rearview decades ago, this one won’t write you any tickets for checking it out up close!
