Best Car Shows...
« on: June 22, 2012, 11:39:01 »
MSN has a list of the best car shows this summer.  All the good ones are listed
and the pictures are all real nice.   Saw a white pagoda in the background of
their # 3 listing...

Beat car shows by far are the national events by the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America).  These shows are for cars that are 25 years old or older and cars are judged by a 400 point system for originally, and over 40 classes, and within the classes sub-classes by age year.  Your car competes and works it's war from Junior award to Senior award, to Historic Preservation award.  More of our Pagoda members should consider joining the AACA.

"Best" is going to be an opinion.  It will vary depending upon who's offering the opinion.  Some people feel huge is best, some perfer intimate.  Some are hot rodders, some low riders, some orignality fanatics, some even like Japanese cars.  ;D  It's nice to have an list of shows so you can choose what appeals to you and is within reach.
