August 2015
8 - Saturday, 8:30 AM GGLC 2015 Hot August Nights Run
Meet at Starbucks 13345 Lincoln Way, Auburn, Ca 95603 at 8:15am
This is off the Auburn Ravine road offramp and leave at 8:30 AM

We will stop at three of the largest venues of the event:

  • Downtown Reno for showing and event shopping
  • Grand Sierra Resort for showing
  • Peppermill casino for showing
  • There is also a Barret-Jackson classic car auction across the street from the Peppermill at the convention center for those interested.

    There is a "controlled cruise" from 7-10 PM in Reno and Sparks that we can participate in or is fun just to watch. It includes a vast variety of classic and muscle cars cruising the strip. People tend to wear period costumes, funny costumes, and have a lot of fun in a controlled atmosphere. The smell of unburnt gas, the rumble of a heavy cam, the serenade of loud exhaust, and the air drips with testosterone!

    This is the largest car show west of the Rockies! Unfortunately, the roads are HEAVILY patrolled as well as the air. So I must stress to all that speed limits MUST be observed. Only one other note for those who attend: to participate in the shows for judging cars must be manufactured in 1976 or older. So this will be a show to just go and view all the restored classics, high horsepower muscle cars, and antique restorations.

    The plan is to drive up as a group and enjoy the events and festivities for the day. Each individual will decide whether to drive home or make their own arrangements for hotel accommodations. Hotel rates are usually doubled for this event and can be harder than usual to obtain. So if you wish to spend the night I suggest making reservations as soon as possible.
