By Staff | Jun 28, 2017

If you’re looking for something to do, then car shows can be the ideal place to spend some time. Enjoy all that comes from being a part of something you love. Check out the classics, bring your own and mingle with great people that share the same love of classic cars as you. With quite a few car shows being held in the local area, you can be sure there is one waiting on you to attend.

Do You Own a Classic?

If you own a classic car of your own, now is the perfect time to reach out to some of the upcoming car show hosts to check into entering your car in the show. An entry in a show is an ideal way to not only show your car off or chance winning a prize or two, but it’s also a time to gather information on upgrades to your car or to learn how to restore a car the best way. Seasoned car enthusiasts are super at giving advice on taking care of a classic. To get your car to the show safely, you can speak to a quality transport company like A1 Auto Transport at www.a1autotransport.com and they can offer insight into secure shipping as well as provide a reasonable quote to get your car delivered on time and in show quality condition.
