Hot August Nights 2017
Tuesday, Aug 8 - Sunday, Aug 13
Reno NV

HOT AUGUST NIGHTS 2017 IS ALMOST HERE!
My annual pilgrimage to Reno, "The Biggest Little City in the World" for the weeklong celebration of American Car Culture that is Hot August Nights is just 3 weeks away. I can't wait, and I'm growing anxious, more so by the day. I'll be meeting some family up there this year, a first for me, but I'm sure it will be great. I'll be there for the entire week, taking pictures, videos and covering the event for this website. After which I will add to and alter this page to share all the action with you. Drag races, burnout contests, a classic car auction with hundreds of gorgeous cars rolling across the block, live bands, dozens of car shows, several cruises, a hula-hoop contest for the Guinness World Record, a Twinkie eating contest, and much more. Most of the stuff is free, some things you have to pay for, but very few of them. And there's so much to do anyway that there really is no need to pay for any entertainment. Check out the Hot August Nights 2017 Calendar of Events below, and get a load of all the amazing stuff that's going on. Plan your trip and maybe I'll see you there.

MORE TO COME FROM AMERICAN-MUSCLE-CARS.NET
WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED

We are growing as fast as we can, gathering and taking eye-popping photos of awesome Classic American Muscle Cars, doing research on specifications and history, and writing content. We all love these great cars, so it’s not like work, in fact, it’s a blast. But it does take time. If you see that we’re lacking in some area, we just don’t have the photos and/or content yet to finish. Give us some time and as we get more eye-popping photos, we will continue to flesh out the site. Join us as we grow, but please be patient with that growth.

PS: Special thanks go out to Specialty Sales (www.SpecialtySales.com) for the hundreds of eye-popping pictures they've allowed us to use. Specialty has 4 classic car showrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area full of gorgeous classics. We'd also like to thank The Goodguys (www.good-guys.com) for putting on some of the best car shows around, and allowing me to take all these great pictures. Thanks again to you both.
