on August 10, 2022

If you are one of those lucky individuals to have a rare or vintage car that draws eyes to your vehicle.  You might love to show it off.  One of the best places to show off your ride is at a car show.  

It does not matter if it’s a local or national car show because it’s the perfect opportunity to show off all the work that you have put into maintaining your vehicle.  It’s the perfect place to network and meet other car enthusiasts and discuss their hobbies.  

Even though you might have a classic or rare vehicle, presentation is key at these shows which is why DriveSmart is going to provide you with some important tips and tricks to make sure you display your vehicle properly at these car shows.  There are a lot more in-depth guides but we want to provide you with the top three most essential tips to get your vehicle ready for a car show.  

Touch Up the Inside and Outside

There will be people are the show that will examine every single inch of your vehicle.  That means you need to prepare by doing a full-scale detailing and checking every inch of your vehicle to make sure that there are no paint chips, oil stains, etc.  

This is to ensure that your vehicle is looking the best it can be because one little paint chip could ruin the experience for you.  You also don’t want to forget to detail the inside of your vehicle and make sure that it looks clean and classy.  

Paint Correction

Check out your vehicle’s paintwork and make sure that you go through the process of polishing the paint to remove any imperfections and enhance the beauty of your vehicle’s paint job.  

We also recommend using a high-shine wax to make your vehicle shine and pop.  This is so that when people are walking around the show, they are drawn to your vehicle from the beautiful and shiny paint job.  

Fresh Tires

Finally, If you want to display your vehicle at a car show, you want to make sure that you have beautiful-looking tires.  Attendees at car shows will look deeply at the tread of your tires.  We recommend investing in a set of tires to be used just for car shows. 

Every Day Vehicle

We understand that your rare or classic car is probably only brought out for special occasions.  That must mean that you have a second car that you use for your day-to-day life.  We recommend protecting that everyday vehicle with a DriveSmart Protection Plan to avoid paying out of pocket on car repairs.
