With August approaching, the collector-car industry is poised for another round of mega-auctions. The action will come to a climax on Northern California’s tony Monterey Peninsula, where last year the sales of vintage and collectible vehicles hit a staggering $430 million, a whopping 38 percent increase over the $312 million record set in 2013. We’ll have plenty of coverage of the Monterey madness in the weeks ahead, but the first big party of the month will kick off about 320 miles to the north and east in Reno, Nev.
