The Biggest Little City shifts into high gear for Hot August Nights—the largest classic car and nostalgia event in the country. Visitors from across the globe pay tribute to the exquisitely powerful automobiles and music of the '50s, '60s and '70s. More than 6,000 vehicles from the golden era of design Show-n-Shine at events all over Reno and Sparks. The event is open to all 1976 or older vehicles, including pickup size trucks and emergency vehicles. It's impossible to miss the white-walled tires, fins, flares and chrome accents cruising the streets or parked, ready to be admired.
