SHOW CARS

To see the 2023 winners, click here.

Welcome to one of the largest Car Shows in New England, supported by our friends from the Cam Jammers Car Club! We have space to display as many as 500 vehicles. Unlike many shows, we do not limit participation to any particular brands or vintages. Our goal is to display the widest possible range of vehicles, since that will be most appealing to our 10,000+ spectators. We love to see antiques, muscle cars, hot rods, exotics, ex-military, trucks, busses, tractors, race cars, ambulances, motorcycles, car "type" clubs, or the very latest in new cars. If you love it, bring it and show it!


You are encouraged to display your car vehicle for judging by the Cam Jammers.

We combine our car show with a great airplane show. Years of experience convince us that people who love fine machinery and workmanship will want to see our airplanes as well as our cars. Pilots and car owners have lots a lot in common! Come and enjoy both parts of our show.

WHAT CARS ARE ALLOWED?

There are NO restrictions on the car categorys allowed. That being said, we ask that you be on the honor system - if you show up with a beat up 2014 Toyota Camry, we're going to direct you onward to general parking. (Unless its a sleeper car of course.) If you feel the car is interesting and something worth showing off, then it's welcome at the car show. 

Some great examples are things like restored 1950's greyhound buses, Corvettes (classic and modern), Studebakers, Dual-Engined Cut Top Hotrod, Restored VW Super Beetle, Model T, Ferraris, Antique Firetruck, WWII Willys Jeep, 1968 Ford Mustang, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird, 1940 Ford Deluxe, kitted out lowered 1999 Honda Civic with a body kit. 

That should give you an idea of the depth and breadth of the cars that come to the show.
