There’s something about fall that makes it a great time for car shows. Maybe it’s that twinge of nostalgia enthusiasts feel when they’re around classic autos mixing with the bittersweet coolness of a perfect Autumn day. It’s a great time of year for a weekend road trip and if show cars are your thing there are plenty of opportunities to see the best around. Let’s gas up the roadster and take a quick tour of some of the best car events in the region.
