From fancy fire trucks to drop-tops, Model Ts to Volkswagen camper vans, the show offers up vehicles for both experienced and novice fans. "It's not just for the fifty-year-old male," jokes publicist Reggie Brasseux. Along with the gleaming vehicles, guests can watch a live automotive-art show each day of the event, when local artists will paint and draw homages to autos on the spot.
The main attraction, however, is Sunday's first-ever Creme de la Chrome, during which any car, truck or motorcycle at the show can compete for a chance at a $5,000 prize for being the cherriest of the bunch. The show begins at 9 a.m. at the convention center, 700 14th Street. Tickets are $15 ($5 for kids); discounts are available at O'Reilly Auto Parts stores.
