Most Hot August Nights activities are free and open to the public, but if you’ve got some spare cash, you can get your own classic car at the Motorsport Auction Group (MAG) car auction at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. If you have a car and need parts and accessories, check out the swap meet or pick up one of many whole cars that will be on sale. For even more goodies, try the Big Boy’s Toy Store in downtown Reno.
