Weekend Edition: Hot August Nights – The Atlantis

image
Our third stop of the night was at the Atlantis Casino parking lot. This was the largest of the three stops we made, perhaps 700 cars or so were in attendance. There were a few interesting bits in this lot. Not a lot of variety, but if its old and has a V8, chances are there’s one in the lot. The show was starting to get a little overwhelming, we were tired and hungry, and we were ready to get home, so photos of the more normal stuff were limited, and we just stopped to look at the more bizarre. It was fun, but one evening a year is about all I need. Too crowded, and I prefer my vintage days to include a lot of racing, which is why I’m headed to the Monterey Motorsport Reunion in a few weeks. Anyway, there will be more coverage of this stuff tomorrow, focusing on particular cars of interest.
