Hot August Nights is one of the biggest car gatherings on the west coast.
They have been doing this for 24 years now and currently register 6,000 cars.
The event is centered in Reno Nevada, but the surrounding towns and communities also get involved.
Here are a few pics to enjoy

This clean 69 has been owned by the same couple for 33 years

This is a beuatiful 68 vert, the picture does not do it justice

A real clean 61 vert also

Of course, my car during the saturday show-n-shine in Sparks


And this 55, this is probably the cleanest straightest most perfect black paint and bodywork I have ever seen, the second shot here is the reflection from the drivers door on that 55

Wish I had known you were there. We just returned back to Ohio (Tuesday night the 10th) from Reno. Had a great time and took a couple hundred photos. We were at the Grand Sierra Hotel for check in and a couple of the concerts. Also at a couple of the show and shines in Sparks and one day downtown Reno. Went to several of the casino show and shines. Attended the auction one day and the swap meet. We also went on the poker run up to lake Tahoe and back. And finally the parade on Sunday. What a week and a half !
