Being a car nut means a lot of things. It’s not just sitting in a dark room reading Hooniverse, no matter how awesome an activity that may be, or even playing the latest version of Forza on your X marks the box. No, being an aficionado of most or all things automotive means getting out and hitting a car show, or maybe a race, or maybe even prowling the junkyards for those hard to find treasures. As a car nut the world is your oyster.
The thing of it is, depending on where you happen to live that oyster may be bereft of pearls. Here in my neck of the woods, I am lucky to have within a 15 minute drive a very active and professional Pick-A-Part, a half-mile oval track, a weekly meeting of great cars and mediocre coffee, and annually a world-class concours event. Not only that, but there are literally millions of dollars worth of unfathomably amazing car collections near by, including Jay Leno’s.
What I don’t have is a near-by cottage builder, but that could come any day now. And that’s just my town, a suburb of LA which is undeniably one of the car capitals of the world. The question for today is whether the City of Angels is the best place for a car nut to live, and if not, what city is, and why is it?
