From time to time people ask me “What makes a great car show display?”. And while the answer may be just opinion, I just say “Let the car do the talking and let a good car show display sign back it up!” The premise is simple, there should only be one focus in your car show display… the car!
I’ve never been one to emulate others, but if you look at some of the premiere car shows out there like Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, the cars there don’t have any gags or gimmicks, just the car and a sign that shares the details of a car. It’s not a lot because they want the car to be the center of attention. That’s the way a car show should be. Needless to say, if you need some stupid crying doll, a tray of fake food, or some giant stuffed animal to get people to look at your car… you shouldn’t be at a show.
As far as your car show display sign, here’s where you can get creative! I’ve had a lot of customers give me pictures of their cars before it was restored, or how it was when their parents had the car. I find the car show display sign with these elements hit the sweet spot. Don’t just list off some specs, tell the story of the car!!
There’s just so much to be said about a car with a story, gives it an added depth to the car, and when you can put that on a car show board, you’re going to grab a lot of attention… and a lot of votes! I’ve been doing signs for over 15 years, and the show boards that share the story of the car are always my favorite. We can help you share the story of your car too!
