As a car guy I’d always been pretty embarrassed to say that I hadn’t been to Monterey car week, especially having lived in California for the better part of a decade. In my defense a handful of dummies had really made the whole thing out to be somewhat unattainable for someone like me. You’ve got to reserve a house at least a year in advance! Hotel? Forget it! Tickets for Pebble are $250! Brooks Brothers is mandatory! Over the years, as I perpetuated this mythology in conversation, several people had pointed out “…Pebble is great and all, but the Historic Races at Laguna Seca are what it’s all about…”.
Since I’m a bit of a bone head it took me another half a decade to finally decide – God dammit I’m renting an RV and I’m going to Monterey Motorsports Reunion!
