Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the hours of the show?
7am until 4pm

What kinds of old cars show up?
We see lots of different vehicles: Packard, Nash, Stanley Steamer, Hudson, among all other types as well. You never know, something special might also show up!

Do you offer classifications of vehicles for judging?
No, we are a display show and enjoy the exhibition form of show and not a competition. We welcome all vehicles to come in and display.

I see you have a cash drawing, when is it and who’s eligible?
Cash drawing is at 3 p.m. for drivers with vehicles on display. You must be present to win. No club members or spouses are eligible to win.

How many vendors do you get at the show?
The number varies but is usually between 100 and 125. Not all vendors are selling auto related parts, so there is something for everyone.

Do you allow camping on the grounds on Saturday night?
Yes, we have space set aside for event participants, with electrical and water.

Do I need to pre-register for the show?
No, we do not take pre-registrations or reserve any spaces for the show. All you need to do is arrive at the gate, pay the proper admission fee, and you’ll be directed to the proper location for vendors, for sale vehicles, or display vehicles.

Does it cost extra to show your vehicle?
No, display vehicles are free, for sale cars in the car corral are an added charge. No “for sale” cars are allowed in the show car areas.

I see that vendor spots are 15 ft. wide, but how deep are they?
The spots vary in depth depending on location on the grounds, some are 15 feet deep and some are 20 feet deep.

If I come from a long way away, can I set up my vendor space on Saturday afternoon?
Yes, we have club members there on Saturday to direct you to a proper location and collect your fees.

How many show vehicles are on display each year?
Every year it grows, and in recent years we have had 600-700 vehicles displayed.

I see you use the word ”vehicles”, what does that mean?
We invite all cars, trucks, cycles, hot rods, customs, etc. We are open to all vehicles, makes, models, years. We want to have something for everyone to look at and enjoy!

If I don’t get a business card from a vendor at the show and want to contact him/her later, can I?
We do not keep records of the vendors or display vehicles. It’s up to you to gather the information at the time of the show.

This is more than a car show; I always meet my buddies there for a great day!
We have found that car clubs like to make a day of this event, ride together to the show, enjoy some great eats, and drive home again. It makes for a great outing with the cars or trucks!

What geographical area do you draw from?
We see that vehicles and vendors from a three hour radius of our town show up for the event.

I may be attending with my hubby, is there something at the side besides car stuff?
Yes, we have vendors that also sell things other than car related items.

How long has this show been going on?
This show was started in 1974 and has been going strong ever since! We invite you to come on in and check us out!
