Cool Car Visits Sam Hughes Inn

Old Car at Sam Hughes Inn

Very Cool Car

Cool Car Visits Sam Hughes Inn

This fabulous car was parked in front of the Sam Hughes Inn, Saturday, March 7 while its owner went to one of the final Pac12 basketball games at the University of Arizona. “Such a cool car” and just sitting there all by itself. I couldn’t resist going out and taking a picture of it. I think it looks incredible, with red leather roof and interior upholstery and wire rims. It is modeled after a vintage Mercedes but I couldn’t tell if was actually old or a fabulous replica. Either way it was a wonderful addition to the neighborhood and I noticed that people who followed later, parked at a safe distance being very careful not to bump into it.This car makes you want to tie a long scarf around your neck, jump in the driver’s seat and take off!

Whether you’re driving a cool car or not, if you’re in the area attending a game at the University of Arizona, consider staying with us. You can park your car for free and walk to all the games.
