Creating a Great Car Show Display

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!

Car Show Boards for Cruise Nights?

Were going to be honest about something… there’s two types of car owners. There’s the competitive car owners that strive to make every detail of their car perfect and show up to every car show ready to win any award they can, and the enthusiast that enjoys driving their car and will just do the occasional car show or cruise night. Cruise nights are becoming the go-to for a lot of car owners because they’re just fun, casual events that only last an evening instead of a whole day that you would spend at a car show. And you’ll see a lot of cars with car show boards there!

A lot of people will ask if show boards are really needed for a cruise night, and the answer is yes! It’s all about presentation, whether you’re displaying your car at a car show for a day, or just a few hours at a cruise night. Having a car show display board is going to inform spectators about the specifications and unique features of your car, or simply tell the unique story of your car. A show board is going to give a glimpse into you as a owner by having a nice, neat little presentation of your car! People are going to know you not only love your car, but love it enough to want to share it with others!

So as the season rolls along and you just want to have a little fun, stopping in at a little cruise-in is a great way to get together with other gearheads and enjoy some cool cars. And when you put your car show board in front of your car, they’ll know you really are into your car! And who knows, you may attract the right person and end up with a Mayor’s Choice or Koolest Kar award!!
