We've had the 1951 Ford pickup in the "Back to the 50's" car show in St. Paul, MN for the last 6 years.  You may think you've seen a car show...but...12,000 cars?  12,000 entered cars made from 1964 and older.  Not counting cars that only enter at the event for one of the 3 days of the show, or 5000 1965 and newer cars orbiting outside the grounds every day.  Cars start lining up on Friday about 4:00 am to try and find a scrap of ground to park on in the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.  120,000-150,000 spectators depending on the weather.  Check it out.

The Back to the Bricks event is truly an incredible automotive event that deserves to be included as one of the top automobile events in the country.  It is not only a huge event that is free of charge but the Corvette Reunion also participates and as part of the event draws over 500 Corvettes as an added attraction to the classic, custom, and hot rod part of the event.  But the unique part of this event is that it is done to help raise money to promote the rich automotive history of Flint by commissioning bronze statues of automotive pioneers.  These have been placed in the downtown brick plaza as well as the Flint airport.  It is an auto event, that began as a dream of an automobile collector, that is run by automobile enthusiasts, for automobile enthusiasts, to benefit automobile heritage.  How could it get any better than that.

Can't believe they left out Cruisin the  Coast. 90 miles of cruising 5 venues to park at live entertainment cash give aways plus a car given away every year . Blessing of the cars in Diamondhead. Over 7000 registered cars plus probably another 3000 not registered.

The Route 66 Show in Chicago suburbs is a great end to the car shows every September.  Cars from the tri state area are always there.
