This week in Reno is a massive vintage hot-rod show called “Hot August Nights” that involves nightly car shows at all of the major casinos and most of the local restaurants. Everywhere you look all week there has been vintage rods of all kinds scooting around, and Friday night I decided to finally venture out and snap some photos of them for you lovely folks. This is the first of many parts this weekend. The A&W is right around the corner from work, so that was my first stop. They were having a Mopars only night, but there were a few interlopers. I hope you enjoy.
This looked like a death-machine. But in the best possible way.
I love a good six-pack on a summer evening.
These wing-cars are just so strange looking. I can’t believe that this shape actually worked in NASCAR. I don’t think engineers in the 1970s really knew what the hell they were doing, they just tried stuff and it worked.
Man I love patina. This Duster was just so stupidly cool.
This is what a real one looks like.
This Power Wagon was one of my favorites from the Mopar show. Very cool, and with nice patina, as well.
Who wouldn’t want an old Caddy convertible to take through the drive thru?
