Showtime! What you need to know to take your car to a local show or a major concours

Credit: Original article published by Classic Cars Journal.

For the past few months, we’ve been writing and publishing a series of articles around a common theme. 

It began in February with stories about car clubs and what they offer to their members. In March, we looked at driving schools and why everyone should attend them. In April, the topic was vintage rallies and racing and the enjoyment they offer both from the standpoints of driving and of making new friends.

That all led up to the theme for May, buying your first (or in some cases your next) collector car. One of the things we mentioned was the importance of calling on your car-club friends to help you find the right car for you, whether you want to cruise or race or rally.

So now it’s June and our series will cover car shows and concours. We’ll explore what you need to do to enter a local weekend car show and we’ll take showing off your car to the extreme with a look at preparing to put your cherished vehicle on the show field and under the scrutiny of the judges at a major concours d’elegance.

By the way, we’ll be asking you to share your own stories and tips about showing a car, be it at a local show or at the Pebble Beach Concours. You can share your stories by emailing them to journal@classiccars.com, and be sure to include a few photos as well.
