Here are some of the highlights for the 2012 year of Classic Car shows and Auto Shows

Silicon Valley International Auto Show

Always a favorite the Silicon Valley International Auto Show will be held once again in January. The Silicon Valley International Auto Show is a trade event where manufacturers show off their preproduction and models for the upcaoming model year. This is one of the must sees if you are wanting to get information on the latest hybrid, crossover and luxury cars.

Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show

The Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show in Half Moon Bay is being held in April this year. It will also be a 2 day show. This event has everything! Classic, performance, vintage, and race cars share the spotlight with vintage war planes, tanks, monster truck and a host of musical performances.

Redding Kool April Nites

Reddings Kool April Nites has always been one of my favorites. Classic and vintage cars are the main subject of this car show, but there is also a nice mix of modifieds, and hot rods. One of the highlights is the cruise held the Friday night of the show through Redding Ca.

Sacramento Autorama

For 62 years the Sacramento Autorama has been hosting one of the largest car shows in the country. Featuring a collection of specialty vehicles, classic cars, motorcycles, muscle cars, hot rods, and other fine custom cars.
