Russo and Steele Collector Automobile Auctions announced today that they will return to their traditional Scottsdale site for their January 20-23 auction.

Russo and Steele had planned to use a different site this year. But those plans fell through.

Russo and Steele will now focus on improving the old site in North Scottsdale in time for the company’s 11th Annual Scottsdale Auction.

“Our number-one priority is to our clients,” said Drew Alcazar, owner of Russo and Steele. “The traditional venue location is already prepared, providing easy access off Scottsdale Road and outstanding visibility off the North Loop 101.  Our clients can prepare for a dramatic change to the event site featuring our new Losberger main auction structure.

“Manufactured in Germany, this new structure will afford an all-encompassing environment in which to hold all the event elements, including the main auction block, vehicle staging, vendors, sponsors and all the amenities that Russo and Steele is uniquely known for.”

High winds blew down Russo and Steele’s giant tents during the 2010 Scottsdale Auction, and many cars were damaged. A recent court ruling absolved Russo and Steele of any legal claims from the tent collapses.

“Russo and Steele’s goal is to have every client, enthusiast, sponsor and attendee enjoy the 11th Annual auction event and say, ‘Wow, these guys took a huge hit last year and look at how they responded,’” Alcazar said. “That’s the statement we’re looking to make. And we’ve already heard great things from our clients — the excitement they’re feeling and the changes we’re making will only continue getting better as we move forward.”
