Hey guys! Part of my role here at Adam's is to help manage events. This thread seems to be pretty helpful at what shows have sparked your interest, but what shows are some of your favorites that we don't currently attend? 

As you all know, we have our new Freightliner M2106 Sport Chassis setup hooked up to the 48 footer gooseneck that travels to the "heavy hitter" shows (IE: Barrett Jackson, Hot August Nights, various Good Guys Shows, and this year the Grand National Roadster show). In addition, we have our trusty Ford flat bed setup with our trailer that stays on the east coast, strictly for the Carlisle shows. 

My personal show history is mostly focused in Florida as I lived there for 23 years and grew up attending Turkey Rod Run with my dad, Mopar Nationals in Ocala, Mecum Auto Auctions in Kissimmee. I would love to grow our involvement with the import/tuner side of shows and do some demos! These youngin's could use a hand learning the basics of polishing!

First off, Welcome Kyle!  I am Flo Grown myself, and as you remember from you time here, our show season is just heating up.  As for local shows here, Adam's dealer Taylor at Mint Condition Car Care seems to have the state 'on lock'!  He attends all types of shows from tuners, to C&C, and most stuff in between.

Sturgis Camaro Rally, last weekend in June.  2017 was the 6th or 7th year...of which I have attended twice.  In 2016 Adams Polishes sponsored a special show n shine award.  But did not see any representation other than that.  This last year did not see any..  Am guessing that 200-300 Camaros is not a big enough venue?  Not being snarky...just a straightforward question/observation....

@Kyle@Adams How about something in the DC Area?  Lots of domestic and international shows bring in a lot of residents up and down the east coast.  I know Carlisle is a good 3 hours away but perhaps along the 95 corridor can be a cost beneficial show?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again.  I don't get why you guys don't do the Ocean City Maryland Cruise Ins in May and October.  In May, it's over 3600 REGISTERED cars, all pre 76, plus thousands and thousands of spectators and enthusiasts. It's held at the inlet AND at the Convention Center on 40th St. There are rows of vendors at both places plus inside the CC.  The October show is a bit smaller, but still thousands of people there.  Megs is there year after year along with a couple of others selling their stuff.  It's a missed opportunity every year that passes.

I saw you guys were down in Miami and just figured Caffeine and Octane was posted in here somewhere. After reading through I realized it is not so here it is. This show has become really big over the last few years. Even has its own tv show on NBC sports now going on 3 seasons I think. You will find any car you can think of here. Check out some of the show clips to see the wide variety.

  • Dates - First Sunday of every month
  • City/State - Atlanta, GA
  • Number of people in attendance - 15,000+
  • Number of vehicles in attendance - 2000+
  • Types of vehicles - Free all makes and models show
  • Number of years show has existed - Good question. 10+ for sure

Just came across this thread...but I definitely agree with Rich, these are huge events that brings folks from all over.  The city caters to them as well, with discounts on food and lodging.  

 

A big ol Adams truck sitting in the convention center’s parking lot would draw a lot of attention for sure!

^^^^ Agreed.  Never been there myself, but have friends who have gone and it's definitely a huge crowd and would be a perfect opportunity for some exposure.
