Frog Follies is a three-day event sponsored by the Evansville, IN Iron Street Rod Club.

You'll get a chance to talk to fellow gearheads from all over the country, and perhaps a few international ones, as well. Read more.
Bonhams set a world record for a sale of a road car when it sold for $38.1 million (including commission) at The Quail in Carmel. Bidding began at $25 million, and lasted for 15 minutes.

Located approximately 120 miles north of Phoenix, Sedona is one of the most uniquely beautiful sites in the country. The relaxing drive from Scottsdale proceeds along Highway 17 away from the desert, past saguaro cacti, to a 4000-foot plateau of acres of grassland. In the distance, the scenery changes to an array of deep orange and red rock formations that are distinctive to this area. There are no advance signs marking Sedona until the exit at Highway 179. From there, drive northwest 15 miles to the Red Rock Country. Read More
In what some may call an upset victory, the 1954 Ferrari 375 Scaglietti Coupe owned by Jon Shirley of Medina, Washington became the first Ferrari to ever win the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in its 64 year history. The silver Italian sport car bested all rivals, winning against stiff competition, in what is traditionally all about elegance and style. Read more.

Hot August Nights in Reno is one of the most popular classic car event scheduled, you guessed it, every August in Reno, Nevada.

See this video for some of the action at Peppermill, just one of the several venues that host classic car cruises and Show 'N Shines.
