Highlights

Mild to Wild Feature:

Since the first automobiles rolled out of the factory, consumers began to modify them to suit their individual needs.  Following World War 2, the need for speed captivated the youth and the age of hot rods was born!  Then cruisers owned the road, and now Tuners are the masters.  See a special display of many of these iconic Wild Cars paired with their factory-stock Mild counterparts to compare the transformation!

 

Mild to Wild Car Parade:

Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of a broad spectrum of Mild to Wild cars as they parade across the show field immediately after the Opening Ceremonies at 10:00am.  Led by the ACCA Temple Shriners mini-truck brigade, the Parade will begin near the Main at approximately 10:10am.

Special Presentation Under the Main Tent: Exotic Hood Ornaments

Come see and learn about the exotic hood ornaments that adorned the luxury cars of the 1920’s and 1930’s.  These ornaments, often in the form of mascots, were meant to make bold statements about the cars and their owners.  See ornaments that came on the luxury cars as well as custom ornaments produced by boutique shops – such as glass mascots that could be lite-up at night.  Presentation starts at 1:30 pm under the Main Tent.
