Back to the 80's Car Show 2018

Welcome to the best decade in the history of decades!

This is an ALL-Inclusive auto event - Ford, Pontiac, Chevy, Dodge, Nissan, Mazda, Toyota, Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari...if it was made in the 80’s, bring it out!  Whether domestic or imported, car, truck or bike, showroom stock or modified to the point of being unrecognizable - we want YOU there.  If you drove it wearing blue eye shadow or acid-washed jeans, we want to see it! (The eye shadow is optional this time around).  Even if it's your rusty project car, or daily driver (we really do love those things) -  If it was made in the 80's... bring it out!

In addition to the cars, you’ll be entertained by Top 80’s Music, a Costume Contest, a T-Shirt Cannon, and a Variety of Supporting Sponsors!

But what about my 1979...  or my 1992...?  We're looking for cars that truly represent the 80's, and this show is to be more fun than technical, the essence of 80s.  If your late-70's vehicle was produced into the early 80's, or if your vehicle began production in the 1980's and carried into the early 90's (example: 3rd Gen F-Body & Fox-Body Mustangs, etc), it's allowed too.

In the end, we'll still leave the voting up to participants, we think our attendees know what they want to see in the Best of the 80's!

Pre-Registration is for 1 parking spot at the Burnsville Center  [Southeast Parking Lot, between JC Penny's & Sears - near entrance #2] for the duration of the show, and a goody bag with Dash Plaque (for the first 200 registrants*).  Event T-Shirts are also available for pre-order during pre-registration.
