Hot August Nights – Reno

If any of you have been reading my blog for a while you will notice from time to time I post photos of old cars.  My husband is a unapologetic car guy and takes me to auto shows all the time.  I keep myself occupied by photographing the beauty that is easily found in these old vintage vehicles.

Hot August Nights has been a car lover’s institution in the Reno and Lake Tahoe area for some time now.  We took the opportunity to check it out since the weather was cool for a change.  The show lasts about a week and culminates in to the final car show, drag races, auctions, and parades last weekend.

   
    
    
 We also took in the National Auto Museum founded with cars from Harrah’s private collection.  It’s a great museum for anyone who enjoyed vintage cars and cars with history behind them or famous owners.

And lastly we enjoyed the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction.  It was a ton of fun to see the cars ready for auction and even more fun to see what prices they sold for.  (Some HIGH and some low.)  See if you can spot me on TV!

  1. Oh, I love the photos of Hot August Nights ( or HAN as it’s abbreviated here in Reno). I’m not a car buff but it is one of the most fun events here in Reno. Next time you come to Reno, you need to check out the art museum and the MidTown Arts District. Reno has a growing food and art scene that is a joy to experience. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog!
