There’s always interesting cars to see at a race like this one that draws a diverse crowd, although we weren’t expecting to see this…
Imagine looking in the rear view mirror and the car is staring back at you. On the track, this might be a good strategy to distract your opponents.
Sara and I always like a supercharged car – check out this belt driven beauty.

As we are walking down a row of race cars, we spotted this Alfa Romeo… but that was not the only thing that caught our eye…
… this dog was sitting in the chair next to his owner. As we approached the car, he got off the chair and laid down next to it, earmuffs and all. This was definitely one of our favorite shots of the weekend!
While we were driving in Monterey, we spotted a Morgan 3-Wheeler on the street. Sad that we did not get a chance to see it up close, we were happy to be lucky enough to spot this one in the pits.

The fun thing about going to the Monterey Motorsports Reunion is being able to see all of these cars are driven and at the same time, pushed to their limits on the track. We will be wrapping up our visit to the Historics later this week, so stay tuned for the last installment!
