The Hot August Nights Foundation & Reno, Nevada are having another main event for street rods and performance autos. Hot August Nights runs from Sunday, July 27th to Sunday Aug. 3. Events last year attracted thousands of street rods that were entered in car shows all over Reno, Nevada. We paided particular attention to numerous blown entries. A parking lot drags event attracted blown alcohol racers in the past. We will be at the various events and would like to meet any of our viewers & customers who are attending; expecially those who are entered in the events. Call (916) 419-6649 and leave a message how to get in touch with you. We check our messages in the evening.

This weekend, the Good-Guys organization is having another great custom car show at Pleasanton, California. We will be there looking for our favorites: fuel injection, methanol, or E85 as well as enjoying all of the other entries. All of the food & entertainment choices from past shows were great. The quality & sheer numbers of the custom cars at this show are phenomenal.
