Registration Info

Goodguys Giant Car Shows are the place to be and definitely the place to be seen! For all vehicles 1972 and older, we offer the opportunity for you to participate in and display your vehicle at the show with a “Show & Shine Registration” good for all three days of the event. And for the car guys and gals who own a vehicle newer than our traditional 1972 cut-off date, we offer the all-new “Super Sunday Get-Together Registration” for all years of American made and/or powered vehicles on Sunday only. Both options come with space to display your car as well as a Goodguys Goodie Bag, Tickets to the event, Children’s Passes, the chance to win a Goodguys Award and more!

To display your vehicle in our Show & Shine, you need to be a Goodguys Member. If you’re currently a Goodguys Member, you can display your vehicle all three days of the show for just $55 or save $10 off the registration cost and pay only $45 if you pre-register before pre-registration closes for this event on 5/25/12.
