The South is known for its cars. Whether they be on TV shows like
Dukes of Hazzard, on the race track or in a collector’s garage, it’s pretty amazing how much money is wrapped up in classic automobiles in Cabarrus County. What’s more, if you don’t rub shoulders with those who may patronize Barrett-Jackson car auctions, you wouldn’t know these timeless vehicles exist here.
Car consignment has become more sophisticated in order to deal – and I do mean deal – with those wanting to buy or sell that special, sometimes one-of-a-kind car. Streetside Classics and AutoBarn are just two of them, and their customers are worldwide.
There are also several groups that meet regularly during warm weather to show off their classic automobiles and have conversations with other collectors. These cruise-ins are family friendly and may also benefit non-profits.
Oh yeah, there’s those couple of races you might’ve heard of taking place this month at Charlotte Motor Speedway as well. Be sure to check out our 2017 Racing Guide at cabarrusmagazine.com for all the information regarding the races, Circle K Speed Street and everything in between!
It’s great to see these metal and chrome classics endure. Here’s to those keeping their legacy alive while we get to enjoy seeing some of them still cruising down Cabarrus County streets. I hope you enjoy this issue. If you like cars, it’s sure to get your engine running!
