Want to celebrate the start of Monterey Car Week like a rockstar? Look no further than our Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff presented by Hagerty.

All 150 vehicle entries are full–thank you to everyone who registered–but there are still ways to be part of the party:

Spectators are free and no registration is required, all you have to do is show up (and maybe bring a friend or two). Still hoping to enter your car? Plans change and people drop out, so consider signing up for the waitlist. We'll let you know a few days before the event if we have room for your car.

Set in downtown Pacific Grove, California, on August 16 from 3-7 p.m., the 2022 Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff features more partners than ever–which means enhanced goodie bags and even more chances to win valuable prizes–plus blocks of cars based on country of origin presented by Moss Motors, FCP Euro, Centerline and National Parts Depot.

You’ll even be treated to live music during the show, with announcements, judging, results and awards broadcast via the PA system.

Just before the pandemic, my wife and I spent a few days in Pacific Grove. It's very nice. (And that's before you stuff it full of cool cars.)

My wife and I just drove down there to watch the sunset. It's a great place for us to get away from the heat for a little while.
