2014 has been an absolutely awesome year for me. From test driving amazing cars like the new Cayman GTS to going to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, it has been a good year to be a car guy. Here is my year in review of amazing cars and events.
Living in the Monterey and San Francisco Bay Areas is a car guy's dream. Here are just some of many great car events that have taken place in the area during the year.
