January 2010 not only kicks off a new year, but also signals the end of the Naughties. The automotive landscape has changed quite a bit since the days of the Y2K scare, but some things remain the same. January still hosts the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) at Cobo Hall in Detroit, the racing season roars to life with the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Barrett-Jackson and the rest of the auction houses will still be propping up their tents in Arizona, and the RetroMobile classic car show and auction will return to the banks of the Seine in Paris.

Classic and collectible car fans will also be treated to the Cavallino Classic, La Jolla Motor Classic, Grand National Roadster Show, and Kruse South Florida Collector Car Auction. Meanwhile, consumers get a chance to kick tires and take notes on the 2010 models at the San Diego Auto Show, Washington Auto Show and Portland International Auto Show domestically, and internationally at the European Motor Show Brussels and Auto Expo India. Besides Daytona, race fans can look forward to events as diverse as the IRC's 78th Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo and the World Drag Expo swapmeet in Schaumburg, Illinois.

If none of those events appeal to you, check out our Google Calendar after the jump for even more listings, all with detailed info and links. And please don't forget to use the Comments to 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.

      I've been digging your podcasts for a few months now.. Really great stuff to listen to. I'm a 50 year old car enthusiasts so I'm new to this itune Itouch product and since getting this technology...You guys are awesome.

      As far as the cars I own? One is a Black 2008 C6 Corvette Z51 1lt with the NPP exhaust and this thing rocks! For family responsiblities I got a 2008 silver CTS AWD 304hp FE2 and its really great too.

      I recently test drove the Jaguar XFR over at monticello raceway and it was pretty cool yet I prefered the CTS v over it.

      How do I send you guys questions for your podcast and how do I vote for you guys on Itunes.? Remember I'm not totally knowledgable about this podcast voting or sending questions to for your podcasts..

      You guys Rock! I've listened to both your new podcasts but also went into the libary and pulled older podcasts back to listen to them since I'm pretty new to this whole podcast thing.

      Now with the itouch I can listen to your cool shows whenever free!

      Keep up the good work but let us know specifically how to vote for you guys on Itunes.. ( I coldn't figure it out )

      So do you think erasing the Month off the iCal icon will keep Apple at bay for using their trademarked logo?
