From auctions to car shows, parties to cruises, racing to meet-and-greets, Monterey Car Week has all the good stuff you’d expect from a world-class automotive event. Make no mistake – this isn’t some show and shine at the local fast food joint. This is the place where the finest machines on the planet get to romp amongst other high-dollar heroes, where supercars and antiques roll out for the shared enjoyment of scores of enthusiasts. Not that there’s anything wrong with a show and shine at the local fast food joint. Hell, I’ve been to more than my fair share of those. Rather, MCW takes things to a whole other dimension, creating a place where Ferraris and Lambos are almost as commonplace as Hondas and Toyotas. It’s in this environment that we can get an accurate reading on where the high-end automotive culture is currently sitting, and where it’s headed in the future.
