We can't exactly say that we've always liked the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion – mainly because this is the first year that the event, formerly informally known as the Monterey Historics, is using that title. No matter what they call it, though, we have to say that we're glad some things never change. By that we are referring to the fact that the paddock is open to everyone and that the cars you see are some of the most amazing vehicles you've ever laid eyes on. Even the non-race cars that serve as basic transportation for the drivers while in town can be achingly captivating.
We just couldn't resist walking around for a couple of hours and banging off a few hundred photos. There are race cars returning to their stalls, some heading out to the track, others just parked and still others undergoing open-heart surgery. There are display vehicles and street cars, along with a few celebrities on hand to participate or just admire them. We've put together a gallery of a few dozen of our favorites below.
