Event requirements

New for 2023, all entries must be accepted by our selection committee. To submit your vehicle for acceptance, register for the event. All new registrations will automatically be waitlisted until evaluated and approved or rejected by the committee in spring 2023. Any vehicles not accepted will receive a full refund. Upload a photo and details of your car during registration to improve your chances of being selected. 

Does this mean we won't accept common cars? Not at all--we've actually made this change in order to increase the diversity of the cars at our show, as we want want to showcase the broadest range of vehicles possible.

What cars are we looking for? We're looking for classic sports and luxury cars, muscle cars, newer exotics, classic 4x4s, and similar vehicles. 

Entrants must arrive between 1:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. for entry into the Monterey Kickoff. Vehicles will not be permitted to enter/exit the show between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
