August 16-18 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
Laguna Seca Raceway, now called Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, was built in 1957 in the hills outside Monterey, Calif. At the track one August weekend in 1974, Steve Earle started running historic racing cars with his friends, and it grew to become an annual, weeklong event, now called the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. This year it starts with the "pre-historics" on August 9-11, and then segues into the "historics" the following weekend. Corvettes will be on hand for the marque's 60th anniversary, along with everything from pre-WWII Grand Prix cars through Can-Am racers and contemporary Formula One cars, with hundreds of enthusiastic drivers holding very little back. The Corkscrew remains one of the most famous turns in racing, and it's still a terrific perch from which to watch the action. Visit www.mazdaraceway.com/rolex-monterey-motorsports-reunion.
August 17-18 Woodward Dream Cruise
More than 1 million people gather each August, from 8-Mile Road to 14-Mile Road, celebrating the glory days of Detroit's Woodward Avenue and recalling when factory engineers from the Big Three automakers raced one another from stoplight to stoplight, testing new equipment and putting the muscle in the muscle-car era. Everybody's welcome; the car watching and the people-watching are great. Although it was only supposed to be one day, Woodward has become a long-weekend event with no sign of stopping. Visit www.woodwarddreamcruise.com for further information.

September 13-15 Goodwood Revival
Here's another fabulous weekend in West Sussex, in the British Midlands, but this event takes place at the famed Goodwood race circuit.

September 27-29 7th Annual St. Michaels Concours
One of the Chesapeake Bay area's best-kept secrets is the little town of St. Michaels, Md.

If blue crabs and fresh oysters are your thing, don't miss the Crab Claw restaurant, where you can sit on the dock, suck oysters, peel shrimp and knock back a brew. St. Michaels has a driving tour each year where participants visit historic homes. This event's a little gem. Visit their website at www.smc.de.org for details.
October 9-12 AACA Annual Fall Meet
Nothing prepares you for this immense, 80-acre swap meet with 8,000 vendor spaces. It's been a fixture on the old-car calendar for more than 40 years. They say if you can't find it at Hershey, you don't need it. The crisp autumn weather (watch for rain), Pennsylvania Dutch meals, the distinct smell of chocolate in the air, a 1,500-car show, a huge car corral, the AACA Museum and a two-night RM auction round out an event that most East Coast historic-car buffs would never miss. For details, visit their website at www.aacamuseum.org
