Cruz’n @ Phil’s – New Cruisers with New Vehicles Every Week


Fountain Hills, ARIZ. (March 13, 2016) – Sunday, over (165) magnificent vehicles attended CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S, including (21) that attended for their very first time.

Today, we taped off all entrances except the aisles on either side of the registration table. That was done to help us keep non-cruiser vehicles out of the designated show vehicle parking spaces without obstructing your entry. We feel it was a success and we suggest we try it again next week. So, when you arrive next Sunday please enter through the two aisles on either side of the registration tables. With your assistance it will work and provide more protection for your valuable vehicles. I welcome any feedback.

It is with great sadness that we inform you that a life long cruiser, Pearl Kocher passed away March 05, 2016 after a very difficult struggle with diabetes and other health complications. Pearl and husband Richard Kocher enjoyed a long life of touring all across the United States in their vintage classic cars. Memorial services for Pearl will be announced at a later date. Please keep the Kocher family in your prayers. You may send a card with your thoughts and sympathy to her husband Richard (Dick) Kocher 15555 Tacony Drive Fountain Hills, AZ 85268.

Select a magazine from the rack near the Registration Table. They are free for you to read while sitting by your car or take them home.


FOUND: (2) Blue Coleman Bag Chairs that were left by a cruiser in the first parking row to the east in mid January. The chairs can be re-claimed by contacting Patty, Becky or Darrel at the Registration table or call 480-209-5700.
