Here are a few photos from Reno's Hot August Nights. Traditionally, I drive the roadster from Sacramento to Reno. But this year, the roadster was a "Queen for a Day" and I borrowed a friend's trailer. I took my time loading the car and then stopping for coffee, thinking I had until 7:00 p.m. to check-in at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. We arrived at 1:40.  However, Saturday check-in hours were closed at 1:00 p.m.!  After casually parking and walking to check-in, I discovered the doors were all locked.

Thankfully, the HAN Staff were above awesome and "un-loaded" my registration from their packed moving van. They were all rushing to another HAN assignment. Again, they went above and beyond and I am absolutely grateful. After un-loading the car, we parked at the Grand Sierra Resort for a while, and then drove to Downtown Reno for the Virginia Street Cruise. The videos show the magnitude of this event; 800,000 participants/spectators and 6,000 cars! Enjoy.  Brian Basquez, Sacramento, Ca.
