While you should already know about MFest VIII, which most recently took place in Las Vegas, NV, you might be surprised to know that it also held an event a month prior. Where, you ask?

Of all those things that happened in 1986, one stood out as possibly the most important in any automotive audiophile’s life: the first year that Spring Break Nationals (SBN) took place at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach,…
