Most years, there’s sort of a lull in the classic car world from the end of July and the conclusion of Detroit’s concour — the Concours d’Elegance of Motown… oops, make that of America — and the carpalooza week of shows and races and auctions in mid-August on California’s Monterey Peninsula.
But not this year, so strap on your helmet cause it could be a bumpy ride!
This year the action (not to mention the rumors and intrigue) continues non-stop, what with the controversy surrounding the sale of several dozen cars that have been in the possession of the Petersen Automotive Museum at Auction America’s new event August 1-3 at Burbank, and then the following weekend there’s the inaugural Barrett-Jackson auction (and isn’t there always something intriguing about Barrett-Jackson auctions?) in conjunction with the Hot August Nights celebration d’hot-rod in Reno-Tahoe.
