Re: Hot August Nights 2021

During the day I was parked at the swap meet, in the evenings drove through the Atlantis, and parked along B street in Sparks next to the Elbow Room bar, and watched the cars cruise.

Re: Hot August Nights 2021

Just got back from Hot August nights.

I didn't see any '59's, other than my own, but there was a '57 Belvedere convertible, as well as a '58 Belvedere coupe with a 392 hemi.

Re: Hot August Nights 2021

I will be at the swap meet as a vendor, Reno is only a 3 hour drive for me. I'll probably have my Sport Fury there to go cruising in the evenings.

Re: Rich Zocchi - Walnut Creek, CA, USA (original builder)

Richard was a customer of mine before he passed away several years ago. The paint color was a pearl yellow-green, and would change in different lights. I recall seeing this car at its debut at Autorama, and a few later shows. Haven't seen it for several years now.
