The Los Angeles Convention Center will host the largest classic car gathering of its kind; event to feature TV’s biggest automotive stars and builders, live how-to presentations and vehicles representing every genre of the classic car hobby
Los Angeles (August 2017) – The second annual Classic Auto Show (CAS) will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center on March 2-4, 2018. Showcasing more than 1,000 cars – including never-before seen collections and vehicles from over 65 Southern California car clubs – the event will include a pair of new stages and expansion to two complete floors.
Back by popular demand will be the Grand Boulevard, which will provide show-goers with a historical walk-through of automotive history, with a stunning display of the finest classic and historic vehicles from all eras.
Also returning, the show’s Celebrity Stage will feature interviews with well-known celebrities in the automotive world including renowned car designer Chip Foose, Dave Kindig of “Bitchin’ Rides” and Wayne Carini of “Chasing Classic Cars.” New faces will also include Stacey David of “Stacey David’s Gearz,” Dennis Gage of “My Classic Car,” Bogi Lateiner and Rachel DeBarros of “All Girls Garage,” Kevin Mack and Mike “Horny Mike” Henry of “Count’s Kustoms” and “Counting Cars,” and professional wrestler and automobile aficionado Bill Goldberg.
Throughout the show, celebrities will share stories, provide exclusive insights on how their shows are produced and offer expert advice on restoration and motoring, while taking part in photograph/autograph signing sessions.
Other new attractions will include “The Restoration Pavilion and Stage” and “Auto Detailing Studio” showcasing daily interactive demos and discussions and “Movies Under the Cars,” which will screen iconic car-themed films and documentaries. The new “CAS Kids Zone” will provide a fun spot for young gearheads and their families to enjoy.
This year’s show will also introduce a CAS Project Car – an interactive vehicle-build that will allow CAS fans to vote online on the direction of the project in the months leading up to the event. The fan-sourced project car will then be unveiled at the show in March.
