3) Scottsdale, Arizona
Like Monterey, Scottsdale plays host to many important classic car events every year, including at least six auctions by leading classic car auction companies in mid-January. Two major auction houses, namely, Barrett-Jackson and Russo and Steele are permanently based there. Since it is located in the desert, cars are rarely affected by rust. Those who wish to take their classic cars out for a spin can explore the scenic roads just north of the city.
4) Los Angeles, California
Southern California is widely regarded as the epicenter of American car culture, and it has many wonderful drives for classic car owners, including classics such as Mulholland Drive (between the 405 and Laurel Canyon Boulevard) and PCH (between Santa Monica and Zuma Beach). In California, old cars wear their original license plates, so it is possible to know the age of a car just by looking at the colors of its license plate.
Also known as the Motor City, Detroit is the seat of the American auto industry, and the general psyche of its residents is very much influenced by car culture. In the month of August every year, the city hosts the Woodward Dream Cruise to celebrate American muscle cars. The event takes place on the historic Woodward Avenue, where the Big Three had done so much unofficial research and development during the muscle car era. Detroit is also home to many auto-related attractions, including The Henry Ford Museum.
