The Best Car Shows in the US

1972 Chevy ChevelleThere are car shows and then there are Car Shows. When you spend big bucks finding your favorite classic car and weeks working on restoration projects, you want to show your pride and joy to the people who will appreciate it the most.

Whether you drive a lowrider Chevy Fleetline or a hot rod Chevy Chevelle with flames on the side panels, you will certainly be noticed at the annual Dream Cruise in Detroit, Michigan – the home of the automobile. The Woodward Dream Cruise, which takes place annually in August, is one of the premier car events in the world. Over one million visitors line the streets to see over 40,000 classic cars cruise the street just like in the good ol’ days.

These are the vehicles that have been hunted down, scrimped and saved for, paid for, and then labored over to fix, repair, restore, and customize. If you have been through the process of restoring a classic car, then you know how satisfying it can be to finally show it off. The best show cars are the ones that have been so lovingly and carefully restored. No matter how long it takes to do it, a car that has been restored and treated with love by its owner is a gem that all car lovers can appreciate.

Reno: So now the holidays are all over and we settle in for the cold winter months. We suggest that you take advantage of the opportunity to travel in your mind’s eye during this time of year and keep yourself occupied with positive thinking. And what can be more positive than thinking about what you’re going to do when the weather changes and the car show season gets underway?

Here’s the idea: First, you do your research and identify the car shows and cruises that you are interested in. You make decisions and circle your calendar, and this process is a lot of fun.
