September brings a whole bunch of Labor Day and end-of-summer cruises, meets and concours. It also kicks off the international auto show season with the Frankfurt Motor Show.

For those of you missing our coverage of Meadowbrook, Woodward and Monterey, there are tons of classic car events in September, including include the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, Lime Rock Vintage Festival, Charlotte Autofair, All AMC Classic Car Show & Beach Cruise 2009, Radnor Hunt Concours d'Elegance, Fairfield County Concours d'Elegance, The Colorado Grand, 20th Annual Route 66 Rendezvous, Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Automobiles, Goodwood Revival, Colorado English Motoring Conclave, Sunriver Festival of Cars, Thunderbolt Historics (and vintage airshow), Brits on the Beach British Car Day, 16th Annual Fall Classic Car Show, Buckingham Concours, Dayton Concours d'Elegance, East Coast Boardwalk Classic Car Show, Southeastern Fall MG Gathering of the Faithful Mk XV, St. Michael's Concours, 12th Annual Coronado Speed Festival, 10th Annual Cruisin' for a Cure, Autumn in the Mountains, Bonhams Vintage New England Collectors' Motorcars and Automobilia, Ironstone Concours d'Elegance, RM Auctions: Icons of Speed and Style Auction, SWEETPORT Antique & Classic Car Show, and VIVA ITALIA: Concours D'Elegance. Whew.

On the racing front, the ALMS series visits Detroit before packing up and hitting Atlanta for the Petit Le Mans. The Formula 1 circus stops in Italy and then Singapore as the series heads down the home stretch, IndyCar has races scheduled at Detroit and Motegi, Japan, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races towards the Chase, with action in Atlanta, Richmond, New Hampshire and Dover.

If none of those events appeal to you, check the Google Calendar after the jump for even more listings, all with detailed info and links. Please use the comments section to add or modify listings.

As always, we want to give a shout-out to our two favorite sources; The New York Times automotive calendar for national and international stuff, and our buddy Dave Lindsay's SoCalCarCulture pages for local stuff here in Southern California. Dave's photographic coverage of these local events is fantastic. Check out this month's event calendar below and start adding to it by leaving us a note in the comments.

      You left off the annual Pigeon Forge, TN Shades of the Past Rod Run where they display classic cars up through the first muscle car craze. I can smell the exhaust fumes now lol.

        Been 20 years since I went to the Rod Run. It was huge back then, had to be something else now.

        The other fav for me is the Lime Rock Vintage Festival. Discovered it by accident and went back every year while my brother was in school up there. A great event.

      Bathurst 1000 anyone? Utterly famous race in Australia. Full field of V8 Supercars pounding around a mountain course for 3-4 hours. The last few years have seen racing so close, the top 5 runners have finished within a couple of seconds of each other. Brilliant!

      Hemming's Musclepalooza at Englishtown Raceway Park in NJ this weekend, the 5th and 6th.

      I know a lot of us here on AB don't like muscle cars, but if you do, you'll be hard pressed to find a better collection of them. This also includes the oh-so-cool Factory Appearing Stock Tire class cars racing down the drag strip. Seeing 11 second quarter mile times on 6 or 7 inch wide bias ply tires is awesome.
