On a hot summer day, I went to a classic car show which included some hot rods.
I don't know if the cars I'm using for the hot theme are considered to be hot rods but I can't imagine any other reason for the flashy paint jobs. If the engines haven't been modified to qualify these cars for hot rod, you can see that the spectators are dressed in shorts for hot weather.
Since the cars are pretty blinding, I thought I'd leave you with a couple of serene beach shots. The dunes leading to the ocean were quite hot.
Fortunately the hot sand was cooled by the ocean making it possible to walk barefoot on the wet part of the beach.
