Things to Do This Weekend: See A Car Show

Posted by


This is the heart of car show season, and it’s the week leading up to Monterey Car Week in California. There are some fantastic car shows around the country and around the world this weekend. 


Pottstown, Pennsylvania
Eastwood Trophy Show
The Eastwood Company

August 09, 2014 from 10am 3pm

If you have a vintage car, you’ve probably purchased restoration or preservation supplies from the Eastwood Company. They have a car show every year with trophies, food, music and — best of all if you need sanding supplies or the right color dull gray paint for that master cylinder on the Buick — a 20 percent discount on stuff at the store.

Cost: $5 Entry fee, Spectators FREE


Brookline, Massachusetts
Larz Anderson Auto Museum
15 Newton Street
Brookline MA, 02445

Military, seniors, students and children 6-12, $5 and children under 6 are free. The Museum is open for your viewing until 4pm. Lunch will be available on site for purchase.

Ararat Shrine Car Swap Meet
2488 S E mo hwy 33
Lathrop MO, 64465

August 09, 2014 6 am.-5 pm.

Swap meets happen all over the place, but when you get a chance to see the awesome cars that the Ararat Shrine Motor Patrol runs around in for the low, low price of three bucks, take it.

Cost: $3.00


2014 Dream Builders Car Show
Evergreen Speedway
14405 179th Ave SE
Monroe, WA 98272

August 10, 2014 9am – 3pm

This great show benefits the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County. You’ll see 30 Trophy Classes, so everybody should go home with something. Food, music, raffles and 1/8th mile drag racing. The show’s also open to all years, models, makes and types, so it’s finally time to dig that Mercury Topaz out of storage.

Cost: $35/vehicle, $5/spectators, 17 and under FREE
