Please join us to show off your original, classic, antique or collector car. This show is your chance to share your car with people who want to see the cars as they came from the factory. This show is for original cars, restored or not. Original is GREAT. We even have a class just for the “survivors”; faded paint, worn interiors, scratched chrome, cloudy glass, but it must be original or nearly so. On the other hand, if your car is restored to at least 90% or better to original specifications, we want to see it too. If your car is a hot rod, modified, has a great flame job–sorry, this is not your car show. We love your cars too–but this show is about original, untouched cars, or cars restored to 90% originality, or better.
Fill out an entry and return it to us as soon as possible. With our limited personnel, we can handle only 300 cars, once #300 has been received, or July 17th rolls around, registrations will be closed. Show date is Saturday, July 20, 2019, at North Park in Billings (6th Ave N & N 19th St). Cars will be parked from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. The show runs to 4 p.m. All cars must be pre-registered in order that cars be parked according to the make and year of manufacture. All cars will remain on display until 4 p.m. If you do register and find that you cannot be in attendance, please notify us prior to July 17, in order that we can fill your spot.
The awards ceremony will start at 4 p.m. Winners of cars that have been judged will be presented with trophies indicating 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in their categories. There will be no ties, and where two cars score the same, a coin toss will determine the winner. Judging will be based on originality first, particularly in the Survivor Class, then condition. All cars will be displayed together by make and year, whether being judged or not.
