The annual Monterey weekend is coming up soon. For those that do not know, this is the ultimate car guy weekend. There are probably over a hundred events taking place this weekend, but the main events are -

On Friday, August 15th - Concorso Italiano at Black Horse Lodge

August 15th, 16th and 17th - The Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca

August 15th and 16th - The Monterey Sports and Classic Car Auction

August 17th - 53rd Annual Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance

Each event is a unique experience. I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun the Auction was. Basically a classic car show, but when the handlers move the cars, look out! Nothing compares to standing 5 feet away from a Can-Am car doing a burn-out on the way into the auction hall! Well, except when they fire up a $4 million dollar, 12 cylinder Ferrari inside the auction hall! Wow! Even my wife loves the Monterey weekend. Just remember to make dinner reservations and hotel reservations in advance, the place gets packed.

Not an inexpensive weekend if you try to do everything, but if you just go to the Historics during the day and hang out in town at night, it is not bad.
