‘Tis the season of my favorites… cars.
Adrenaline rushes. My heart races. My mind goes crazy.
Put me in a lot filled with cars, and I will have the time of my life.
August is just around the bend…and that means…it’s time to get out and check out these amazing end-of-the-year car shows!
As some of you may know, last year I posted up a few car shows that were happening in California around this time. I had a blast at those events, and I would love to share some events that are coming up for you to get excited about.
So let’s rev right into it!
