Hot August Nights 2010

Recommended Posts

Went to Hot August Nights in Reno back in August (duh), it was a great time!! Thought I would share a few pics.

One of my favorite cars of all time!! 1969 GTO Judge.

Came out of the hotel and what do ya know, an Aussie cousin came to visit (mine's the G8)!! (Oh, that's my daughter by the G8, she's such a ham when it comes to photos).

I would highly recommend Hot August Nights to everyone. It was a fantastic time and the cars were totally awesome!! FYI it will be the second week in August 2011. I'll be there for sure. If anyone plans go, PM me and we can hang out and check out some great Pontiacs (and others)!!

Thanks Ghost, sorry if I started this thread in the wrong area.

Yes, I have tons of pics, I don't have time right now, but will post some more later. Any objection to non Pontiac vehicles? I have some great pics of some fantastic Chevys (and even a few cool Mopars).

There are only 5500 "official" Hot August Nights vehicles. There is an application process and a waiting list. Most of the Casino/Resorts have their own shows and prizes and anyone can enter those. I met a guy who had his 2009 Liquid Red G8 GT in a show at the Atlantis in 2009 and took 3rd place!! I kinda wanted to do that with my G8, but I procrastinated and didn't get a chance. Oh well, maybe next year!!

I will definitely post more pics tonight. Stay tuned!!

Of course there were plenty of Nomads!!

And lots of Camaros!!

DSC04908.jpg

And of course lots of Vettes too!!

I'm not a Mopar guy by any stretch, but I can appreciate them!!

This one wasn't even in a show, it was in a parking lot, but I thought it was pretty cool. Someone converted a new Challenger into a Hemi 'Cuda!! (complete with "Plymouth" lettering and everything!!

I like the talk of a FP meet at HAN 2011!! Perhaps we could get a corner of a casino lot for an FP car show. It would be worth a try. I am always game when it comes to hot cars (especially Pontiacs)!!
