November 2018 WILL BE THE 32st ANNUAL EDITION OF THE CAROLINA COLLECTOR AUTO FEST.

After all these years, we are still alive and kicking!  While over the years the event has evolved, we could not be more enthusiastic that we are now with everything in the US looking more prosperous every day.   We look forward to again at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, November 9th & 10th with Swap Meet Vendors, Car Corral cars for sale, and our Classic Car Show.  Spectator Doors will be open Friday from 10am – 6pm and from 8am – 5pm on Saturday.  NO SPECTATOR PETS ALLOWED, (yes, even those you hide in your purses!).

For our car show participants:

Our Saturday “Classics” show has been extended to a Friday / Saturday event.  We will  be doing FRIDAY ONLY awards for the “Best Paint”, “Best Interior” and other awards to be announced. Only cars on display Friday will be eligible for those awards so please, if at all possible, bring your cars in early Friday so that your car will be eligible for all available awards! Those awards and the regular event awards will still be given out on Saturday at 4:00 PM. Friday attendees are welcome to leave their classics inside the Jim Graham Bldg overnight. The first 100 pre-registered cars will be guaranteed space inside so please get those registrations in by October 31st.   That also allows us time to return your registration receipts, window cards and entrance maps to you in plenty of time. Tell your friends about these changes. AND, don’t forget our vendors and their automotive wares. They are the life-blood of the car show industry. They need your support whenever you need that hard to find part for your classic.

Our Sunday event has been rebranded as the Xtreme Car and Truck Showdown showcasing the mild to wild modern muscle cars, trucks, 4×4’s and ratrods!  Search for Xtreme Car and Truck Showdown on the web, Facebook, and Eventbrite.com.
