Hot August Nights at the Grand Sierra Resort (Reno, NV) – August 2, 2014 Here’s a couple of gorgeous classic Fords from this year’s Hot August Nights celebration. I think the 1930 Model A was my favorite car of the entire show.

1962 Chevy Corvette

I’ve been lax about getting my pictures from the Hot August Nights care show at the Grand Sierra Resort here in Reno back at the start of July. I took just two pictures of Corvettes. The gorgeous 1962 Vette up above and the very cool ’72 Vette below. Green is an unusual color for a […]
