Monterey Car Week 2023 got rolling on Friday, August 11 in Downtown Old Monterey with a remarkable collection of historic race cars. To give the public a chance to get up close and personal with auto-racing history, these classic racers and their owners stopped by Alvarado Street for a couple of hours on their way to participating in the Rolex Monteey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca. View photos of the event and all the cars here.

Held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, the annual Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is a museum revving to life with hundreds of historic and period-correct race and sports cars from nearly every era. Yet they are not for show. Drivers race them in corresponding run groups to enjoy them at speed and for the entertainment of thousands of enthusiastic visitors.
