Auto Show Vrs Car Show

Car show or Auto show? Yep, there is a difference. Most of the organizers that organize car shows are talking about cars owned by private parties, often these are fully restored "Old School" classic and vintage cars, other times highly modified hot rods. Many of these car shows also have a wide veriety of other older vehicles being displayed.

Auto Shows on the other hand are usually mostly for the large automotive manufacturers to show off the latest "New School" models. Often these debuts won’t be found on the street for several years. In the case of concept cars you may never actually find one on the streets, they are just cool possible glimpses at the future of automotive.

Charity Car Shows

Along with the larger shows the Southern Cal Cars calendar will feature City Council and high school cars shows as well as show held at private businesses. We also have many charity car shows. With all the shows listed there is sure to be some listed near you!

New car shows are being listed throughout the year so book mark this page and stop by regularly.
