Car Show Details

Who can participate?
The car show is open to all German made vehicles. We have also been known to make an exception for particularly interesting cars not of German origin. Just email to confirm.

Who determines the winners?
You do! Anyone who registers for the car show and checks in at the event will be given a ballot to pick their favorites. In the event of a tie and in the case of the "GAS's Choice" award an executive decision may be made by our staff.

We will change it up a bit this year and have a single class for each German make. The classes break down as follows:

Who gets to park in the shop?
If you are interested in the limited parking inside the shop, please email with some photos and a brief description of your vehicle. The best entries will get a spot reserved for them inside. If you park inside, you will be required to stay for the entirety of the event for safety reasons.

What time should I get there?
If you have a reserved spot in the shop, we request that your vehicle be in place by no later than 10:00am. If you are parking outside, please arrive before 11:00am and our staff will guide you to the appropriate parking spot.
