From automotive paint to the make, model and year, not to mention all the shiny auto trimmings, we are drawn to these car events every year! It’s exciting to see these masters-of-art in automotive restoration, replication, preservation and innovation! “What a show” is usually the final “quote” at the end of the day wishing we owned just one of these auto masterpieces… and maybe it’s not a reachable goal, but we all like to dream, right? If you’re a mechanical buff who loves the mechanics of working auto parts, an auto painter who loves the mastery of a good paint job and its vibrant colors, or just an over-all car lover, these car shows won’t disappoint.
