hot rod antique classic car automobile webWho can forget cruisin' the streets on those hot summer days? Probably not the police; they keep their files for a long time. Seriously, the United States is a car nation (no pun intended), and summer is the time for putting the top down, or turning on the air conditioning, setting the cruise control, pumping up Sirius XM, putting the cell phone away, getting out the GPS, setting the lane assist and collision warning system, and having a good time! Seems driving has changed a bit since those 25-cent- and 14-miles-per-gallon days. Check out these summer car gigs!
