Hot August Nights

Text and photos by Steve Temple

While northern Nevada is known for its mother lode of gold and silver, precious metal of another sort rolls into Reno every year for Hot August Nights. It’s one of the world’s largest gatherings of ’72 and earlier vehicles. Primo collections of cars and trucks gather at all of the major casino resorts and surrounding venues, about two dozen locations in all, and showcase spectacular rides, cruises, auctions, and entertainment. More than 6,000 classic vehicles motor through the streets and take part in events such as controlled cruises, Show-n-Shines, Drag Races and Burnouts, a Swap Meet, fireworks and AutoCross, and more. Thousands of classic car buffs and nostalgia enthusiasts dance each night away to free live entertainment, bringing back bygone eras at outdoor venues. 

Displaying everything from classics to kustoms, rods to muscle cars, restos to restomods, along with swap meets and nostalgic automobilia, you name it, you can find it at HAN. It shows off so much automotive innovation and creativity, that car builders find all sorts of ideas and examples for their own projects. So enjoy our choice selection of these sizzlin’ rides.
