One of the best signs of spring in the Twin Cities is when flashy cars take to the streets. This weekend will feature a sweet car summit, as over 100 hot rods, race cars, classics, street machines, motorcycles, and customs will be parking themselves at the Fairgrounds. Check out sparkly vintage vehicles that look as new as they did 50 years ago, gaze upon projects in progress, and get car-rehab advice from hobbyists and pros who know what they’re talking about. Food trucks and entertainment round out this annual happening.
