Rules & Regulations


No alcoholic beverages will be permitted. Violators may be ticketed/removed from the premises.

♥ Car Show registrations must be completed between 8:00-10:00am.

♥ All vehicles will be classified by the vehicle owner at the time of registration. Please look closely at the Judging Sheet for the place to choose the class(es) you would like to enter your car, truck, or motorcycle into for judging.

Judging will begin at 11:00 am. Please have all show vehicles detailed and ready to be judged by that time. Late entries will not be permitted.

♥ All display materials must be anchored safely. Failure to comply with this may disqualify your entry, and you may be asked to remove items that fly around.

♥ Vehicle Identification Sheet must be clearly displayed on all show vehicles in the dash area/front windshield. Vehicles without entry cards will NOT be judged!

♥ Judging will be based upon the Antique Automobile Club of America (A.A.C.A.) judging standards. Please see the judging sheets for further information. All entries will be judged with attention to detail, cleanliness, and overall appearance. Entries will be judged as fairly and impartially as possible.

♥ Car Show awards will include 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place trophies for each class, plus one Best in Show, one Fan Favorite and one Pastors Choice. ALL cars registered for the show are eligible for the “Best of Show” trophy. The winner of “Best in Show” is not eligible for any other trophy awards.

♥ No vehicles will be moved once they are parked on the show lot, unless a staff member asks specifically for a vehicle to be moved. This is for safety reasons with the crowds/children present at the show.

♥ No vehicle will be judged if their sound system exceeds acceptable noise levels.  Audio and visual systems may be utilized at low levels throughout the day, or to demonstrate to judges for a limited time period during which the vehicle is being evaluated.

♥ Judges must have access to all areas of the vehicle, including the trunk, interior, or engine compartment if the participant wishes to be judged for that area. Judges are not to touch or open any areas of the vehicle to complete their judging duties, so please have all areas accessible to the judges during that time.

♥ It is suggested that you be available to the judges during the time that your vehicle is being evaluated. They may have questions for you, or may need your assistance with your vehicle

We would like all show vehicles to remain in the show area during the event hours of 9:00am-3:00pm. WINNERS NEED NOT BE PRESENT TO WIN AWARDS

♥ The decision of the judges is final. Revisions will not be made to judging sheets.

Tie-breakers will be decided by the head judge after a short re-evaluation of details.
