    2018 Philly Auto Show - Club Cars wanted!!!

    Who would like to have their car on display at the 2018 Philadelphia Auto Show?

    Once again, the Philly Auto Show staff has asked that the local car enthusiast groups bring their cars for a display showing the owner’s
    passion for them! What started in 2013 with the local Ford groups challenging the local Camaro groups to a FaceOff has evolved into support
    for all the local car clubs to show off what they love.

    While the display in past years (except for the Import vs. Domestic) has been heavily populated with Mustangs, we are reaching out to more clubs to get a larger variety of cars in the display. However, I still want to see our Mustangs in there, since we started it all!


    If you would like to have your car in the show, here are the details –


    • Your car will be on display (behind barriers, not open to touching by the general public) on the main floor at the 2018 Philadelphia Auto Show which runs from Saturday, January 27th through Sunday, February 4th. Once the car is on the show floor, it cannot leave the convention center until Sunday night.




    • The car owner (and a second immediate family member if desired) will be given show credentials which will allow you to attend the show at any time to check on your car or just take it all in. In addition, they will give you tickets to the show for family and friends to use. I encourage owners to hang out at the display when they have time – there are always people who want to talk about the cars they admire and ask questions about them.




    • Cars must be registered & insured – proof will be required to be on file with the show prior to move-in. In addition, you will be required to leave a set up keys in the Auto Show office so that if an emergency occurs, the cars can be moved. The keys will all be kept in a locked safe with restricted access, so you don’t have to worry about them.




    • Move-in will most likely be Wednesday, January 24th during the day (between 9 am and 3 pm). This is the day before any of the dealer cars are brought in (in fact they're still building a lot of the displays), so there will be NO long waits to bring your car in. If you're towing your car in, you can unload on the loading dock or inside the convention center.




    • Move-out will be Sunday, February 4th at the close of the show to the public. Your car MUST leave that night and move-out of the club cars will start as soon as security can get all the spectators out of the show room.



    If you are interested in participating, send an email to Heather Dillon at bullitt2518@gmail.com. Please make sure to put 2018 Philly Auto Show Submission in the subject line and include the details about your car along with a picture or two, your name and contact information.
    The more information you give, the more information we have to make a decision with. Feel free to include any special stories about the car,
    meaning behind you owning it, etc. along with what modifications (if any) you have done. All submissions must be via e-mail! I am not online enough to see everything that is posted on all the different forums and Facebook sites.

    Submission deadline is Sunday, December 24th . Yes… that is Christmas Eve. (due to the large response to this request, this deadline may be moved up a bit. If that happens, I will let everyone know)

    Since we are hoping to draw in a larger variety of cars this year, I can’t guarantee that everyone interested will be able to participate.
    However, cars will be selected by a group of club leaders/representatives in order to ensure that every car is given an equal shot at being
    selected and every effort to make sure that each club is represented in the display.

    Thank you and I look forward to seeing your cars in the show!

    Update to the above information -

    The submission deadline is being moved up to Friday, 12/15!
    The response has been amazing and want to be able to get the selection process mostly completed before Christmas. So, if you've been thinking about submitting you car and haven't gotten around to it, now is the time to do so.

    So far, I have only had one person from VFMC submit their car.

    Last day for submissions is tomorrow! If you are interested in submitting, make sure to send me the info.

    And if you're thinking that your car isn't "nice enough" or "not show quality" - that's not the point of this display. The point of this display is to show how active the local car clubs are and their passion for their cars. It doesn't matter what it looks like - as long as YOU like your car, it's perfect!

    As for move in day - if you can't trailer it in, you will have plenty of time once it's parked to clean off any road dirt & make it all nice and shiny again!
