There’s Still Time to Enter the Virtual Monterey Kickoff Cruise-In

Don’t get us wrong, we always enjoy meeting our readers, but since meeting up in person currently isn’t the most responsible thing to do, we’re moving our annual Monterey Kickoff Cruise-In Presented by Hagerty and eBay Motors online.

That’s right: Despite a lack of Monterey Car Week this year, we’re still holding our annual kickoff party online—and this year anyone, anywhere can participate for a chance to win some really great prizes.

The virtual party takes place on August 11, 2020, on the Classic Motorsports Magazine website forum. Starting at 3:00 p.m. Pacific, anybody can participate by posting a picture of their car.

Think of it like a concours-style event, but from behind the screen of your phone on the comfort of your couch.

  • Best Air-cooled Porsche
