Speaking of Show n Shines, the membership present, has re-vamped some of our awards for our “Bowties vs the World” Show n Shine.  The awards that were Deleted are the following Best Rad-Rod, Best Small Car, Best of Modern Car & the Best Competition/ Pro Street vehicle..  We agreed to combine Best Early Hot-Rod & the Best of the Pre-50’s into one class.. The award will be renamed at a later date...



This was a result to our event losing some award sponsorship due to what has been happening with the Covid “thingy”. This will leave us with 12 awards to be presented..

A full sponsorship w/ 1 year of promotion & covers 1st & 2nd placing for $260.00.  Single award sponsorship is $ 160.00 ( Best engine detail, long distance, Peoples choice , Special interest & Best Future Project ) with 1 year promotion.. Remember this will be our 20th year... We have to search for a new award producer as  the good people at Prath that have with us for 19 years closed their operation...
