Event: Monterey Car Week 2019

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="34075"] Here’s the dirty little secret about Monterey Car Week. You can’t see it all. You simply can’t. No matter how much you prepare, you’d be incredibly hard pressed to know about all of the cool events and meet-ups going on that week. And, even when you do, there simply aren’t enough hours in a day… or week. That may sound like a whiner’s view, given what an embarrassment of riches this particular car week represents. We’d a...
