Weekend Edition: Hot August Nights – The Peppermill

IMG_8305
Stop #2 was the Peppermill casino parking lot. This was one of the “officially sanctioned” stops, so there were a few hundred cars on display at this show. I didn’t bother going to the biggest show at the Grand Sierra, because it was a madhouse, and I didn’t go downtown, because that’s always a mess. These few that I went to were enough for me, though. If you’ve seen one parking lot full of hot rods, you’ve pretty much seen them all. The doors at the Peppermill are tinted red, so I thought I’d snap a photo through them. It’s weird.

And Buick performance cars. IMG_8329
This was a really cool old Willys. On modern rubber like this one, I bet they can get through most anything life can throw at you.

Don’t see Packards very often. I was so awestruck, this was the only photo I got of it.

Neat road-racer replica. I don’t think this car ever actually raced, but I could be wrong. Nice Monte Carlo bar, though.

The Riverside decal is a nice touch, too.

This nose and the ghost flames had me gagging. Poor-vette.

GT350 Replica. Mostly convincing, but not convincing enough for this eagle-eye.

I really dug this BelAir.

Wrong show, buddy. Hard to pass up taking a picture of an MGA on Panasports, though.

All my friends drive these, apparently.
