Copperstate 1000 is one of the premier vintage car road rallies in North America. The Men’s Arts Council (MAC) created the event in 1990 as a fundraiser for Phoenix Art Museum and for 20 consecutive years this event continues to set the benchmark for excellence. The finest vintage automobiles in the world have graced the scenic highways of Arizona during this annual four day event.
This annual event celebrates the automotive cultural legacy by featuring some of the finest working examples of vintage, sports, racing, classic and grand touring automobiles manufactured before the 1974 model year.
Each year a new route covers 1,000 miles of beautiful desert terrain, verdant river valley and alpine landscape throughout the state of Arizona and beyond.
As the collector car hobby continues to thrive it has evolved into a lifestyle as more and more collectors are driving and enjoying their vintage automobiles. The Copperstate 1000 is the epitome of such a lifestyle event and allows participants to enjoy four days of glorious driving with fellow enthusiasts while having only the sheer exhilaration of the open road to contend with as all the details have been handled by our capable staff.

The Copperstate 1000 hosts approximately 75 qualifying vintage automobiles with drivers and co-drivers from the all over United States, as well as Canada and Mexico and Europe. The entrants pay a fee and enjoy a fully catered 4-day event. The relationships that are made during these rallies often develop into life long friendships. Many participants return year after year.
