The car show is the main attraction at this event. Over 5000 collector cars on display in the eastern section of the infield of the Daytona International Speedway. No classes or awards, just a lot of FUN! It is recommended to arrive early to secure your parking space for the day. Don’t forget to bring your camera for some great car and truck photos.

Check out the Car Corral area. Looking for that special  collector car? It’s probably for sale in our Car Corral. Over 1500 cars on display and ready for sale or trade. Another area is the Swap Meet. Collector car parts and memorabilia as far as the eye can see. If you own a collector car this is the place. The part you need is available here.

Finally, visit the Arts & Fashion area. Handmade crafts and fashion items for everyone. Roam the aisles and find that special gift that can’t be found elsewhere. Prices will vary depending on the item. Most vendors may take cash only. However some take credit card too.

This event would not be possible without these fine co-sponsors. They are O’Reilly Auto Parts, South Daytona Park & Tropical Gardens, Mecum Auctions, Daytona Trophy, Tobacco Free Florida, AFL – Premium Shipping Worldwide, and KOA.
