Hooniverse Asks: Are you looking forward to any local car shows?

COVID-related restrictions are lifting throughout the country. Some things are returning to normal. Or at least, our new normal. And that means local car shows will be firing back up, especially as we swing into summer soon. Are there any local car shows you’re looking forward to seeing reappear?

Are you going to be cautious at these shows, if you do attend, or are you going to wait and avoid car shows altogether for some time?

It’s interesting to see bars and restaurants rock back to life. I’m not sure I myself am ready to cram into a crowded restaurant with a ton of other people. But maybe a car show could be a bit more open. It’s outside. Hopefully the worst thing you’re breathing in is exhaust fumes.

Obviously I don’t have a good answer to the medical side of this question, but I do know I’d like to attend my local Cars and Coffee soon. However, I have no problem waiting a bit longer for that day to arrive.

    No, but my failure to plan ahead with respect to car shows is not new for this year.

    Roughly half of the shows in my area that were scheduled through July have been canceled due to the pandemic. The big annual one in my town is currently still on, in mid-August.

    The big spring show in Bergen has been postponed to september 6th, with the government stipulating that assembly restrictions will be lifted on september 1st. Otherwise, I don’t go to many shows anymore, hardly ever in the loop about what happens.

    The ones in my area have been cancelled so far. Instead there are a lot of cruises. So that’s what my wife are looking forward to. It’s kind of cool to just be able to go take the Corvair vert out on a cruise anyway. As much as I want to take it to shows. I’d really want to keep breaking it back in. I think I will wait until closer to the end of the season in September/October to go to the shows.

    Yes, when they return. My local(ish) event is Katie’s Cars and Coffee in Great Falls Va. This is held on Saturday mornings early before the rest of the shopping center is open. It is in a very affluent area and the range of cars is spectacular. However the drive to there is worth it by itself as Georgetown Pike passes through impressive homes/neighborhoods and is a beautiful hilly drive. Also there is a start time of 0600-0900 and generally a revolving stream of cars that pass through. I like it because it seems all cars/makes are welcome. I remember when a super clean MKI Scirocco parked next to a line of Lambos. The owners of those cars gathered around the VW and well swapping stories about owning a similar one back in the day.
