This is not a professionally judged show. We ask visitors to the Games to vote on their favorite car. Selection of a favorite car by our visitors may be based on factors such as their personal preference, a color or style they prefer or other factors.


We have three awards that we give to the three cars that receive the highest number of votes from our visitors. We intend that ballot casting, counting of votes and awarding of trophies will all be done on Saturday. If we cannot find you at the time we are giving out awards, we will mail it to you.


Once you have registered at the car show and parked your car in the car show area, you can spend your day at your car, or you can spend your day enjoying the Games. You do not have to stay with your car. We ask that your car remain in the show area during the balloting period from about 10:00 a.m. until NOON. We may alter the balloting period based on weather and the flow of visitors to the Games. For each car registered you will receive two (2) Saturday Adult Admission tickets to the Games.
