Next week is arguably the World's Largest Car Week of the year.
Anyone from around here going?
If you have never gone and call yourself a "Car Guy" you owe it to yourself to go at least once in your life.
I try to go every year, a small group of enthusiast will caravan and take back roads all of the way up and down with a ton of spirited driving.
