August Barrett-Jackson Auction Sweetens the Pot in Reno

When you are weathering the storm during the winter, time can sometimes seem to pass very slowly as you look forward to the warmer months. In a somewhat cruel twist of psychological fate, the situation is reversed when summer finally arrives. You can do all the things you love to do without any impediments, but the Fourth of July tends to turn into Labor Day far too quickly.

Now is the time to seize the season and take advantage of the opportunities you have while you still have them. With this in mind, if you are a classic car person, you may want to consider a trip to Reno, Nevada, during the beginning of August.

Reno is called “The Greatest Little City in the World,” and it honestly is a great place to visit. I should know, because I used to live there. You have gambling, you have relatively mild weather, you have access to spectacular Lake Tahoe, and during the month of August, you have Hot August Nights.

Every August Reno hosts a spectacular classic car event called Hot August Nights. Cars are at the center of the extravaganza, but the event is a celebration of nostalgia on numerous different levels. If you love cars, you should certainly put this event on your bucket list.

To sweeten the pot, there will be a fantastic Barrett-Jackson auction that you can participate in while you soak in the tastes, sights, and sounds that go along with Hot August Nights.

The Opening Night Gala will get things into motion on the evening of Wednesday, August 5th. The auction itself will take place on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

There will be some ridiculously cool old-school classics up for bids, including a 1924 Ford Bucket-T Custom Roadster; a 1933 Ford 3-Window Custom Coupe; a mind-blowing 1939 Jaguar SS 100 Custom Roadster; and a rare 1955 Chevy Custom Sedan Delivery.

These are just a handful of the jewels on the block in Reno next month. When you combine this well-stocked auction with the experience you will have at Hot August Nights, you are looking at an over-the-top road trip if you are a true school classic car fan.
