For total immersion in the automobile, nothing matches Monterey Car Week. The hardware varies from brass-era antiques to modern hybrid supercars. The venues vary from golf courses to a race track to a church.
It’s during the third week in August, the 15th to the 20th this year, so wish your boss good luck and pack for Monterey. There are ultra-exclusive events that cost $650 per ticket, but plenty of low-cost or even free automotive indulgences. Cars from The Revs Institute play roles in two marquee events. Here’s our guide.
● Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s a freebee(yes!) chance to wander among some 175 cars — hot rods, muscle cars, Ferraris, etc.– along the main drag in calm Carmel. Bring a latte.
