Car Shows

If you want to see custom cars, then all you need to do is attend some car shows!  This is where the fun is!  All of the hard work that goes into building custom cars can be easily seen at an auto show.  It's exciting for me to even think about the next show that I plan to attend!

An auto show is basically an event where car enthusiasts gather to show off their latest work in customizing or restoring their car(s) or trucks.  These events usually take place in a large open parking lot, or even a grass field.  Parking lots are preferred for these events since grassy fields tend to produce a lot of dust that will get all over your detailed (clean) car, but if you have the proper "duster" to get the dust off of your ride, then you can easily deal with or overlook the dust that has found its way onto your car.

Car show events also feature lots of activities and music is always heard!  The music tends to change with each type of auto show depending on the theme of the show, or the era of vehicles on display.

What are the different types of shows?

There are many different types of car show events, but I will do my best to describe the major types.  For instance, most auto shows will fall into one of these categories:

Layd Out At The Park Custom Car and Truck Show

Friends in Low Places Custom Car and Truck Show

  • Classic Car and Truck Show-which is a show that will generally only feature cars that were produced before the year of 1970 and can have cars that are both customized or restored. Some Classic Car and truck Show examples include:
    Good Guys Rod and Custom Show '07

  • Antique Car and Truck Show- will feature cars that are very old (pre 1930) and are usually not customized, but instead restored to their original condition.  See the show below for an example of an antique car and truck show:

  • Cruise-In isn't necessarily an actual show, but is more of a gathering of people and their cars, from any generation, at a local hangout, park, or street. Awards are not given at cruise-ins since these are not competitions, but just hanging out with car enthusiasts: Check out the cruise in below:
