Tips for Entering Your First Car Show

Car Show

If you are a true car aficionado, you have probably been to a car show or two. You may have even dreamed of participating in one. Not sure how to get started? Here are some tips for entering your first car show:

  • Find the right car: If you don’t already own a vehicle that you want to show at a car show, find one that you are passionate about. Classic cars are the most common cars on display at car shows, but you can find shows catering to almost every vehicle. You can start by browsing our inventory here at Chip Wynn Motors or looking on Auto Trader’s Classics site.
  • Start small: Look for local cruise-ins that take place in parking lots or large parks. They are often advertised on community events calendars online. These events are typically welcoming of newcomers and should be easy to enter.
  • Ask around: At the local cruise-ins, make connections with people whose vehicle interests align with your own. They might be able to help you find more specific car shows targeted for your specific vehicles or tastes.
  • Come ready to entertain: Be knowledgeable about your car and the work you’ve done to it, as people will ask. You can also entice people to come look at your car by offering snacks or doing something unique to your section of the cruise-in.
