Hundreds of unique cars, trucks, and motorcycles will be on display for only one day on the beautiful Benedict Castle lawns.
The show is often referred to as the crown jewel of the Inland Empire because it uniquely blends a mix of concours-grade cars, with retro-mod hot rods, custom cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
The show is often referred to as “The Car Guy’s Car Show” due to its origins with Barry Meguiar and his “Car Crazy Central” TV show. Barry brings to life folks who are passionate about vehicles through his work as a TV personality and car collector. The program focuses on automotive amateurs and collectors who have created unique iterations of OEM vehicles.
This year, auto enthusiasts will exhibit a variety of rare and unusual vehicles, such as extreme motorbikes, custom hot rods, modified muscle cars, and historic award-winning vintage cars.
This year’s car show classes include:
- American and European Classic Cars (1926-1978)
- Corvettes, Muscle Cars, Hot Rods & Racecar
- Specialty Class: Truck Mods & Motorcycles
The automobile display begins at 10:00 am and closes between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. Trophies and honors will be given to the best cars in each category at the conclusion of the exhibition.
The Benedict Concours Car Show welcomes friends, family, and pets in a casual setting with casual attire. All day long, there will be plenty of food, beverages, and entertainment available.
The Meguiar’s Elite Showcase, featuring the most breathtaking vehicles arranged together for maximum impact, will once again be a highlight of this year’s exhibition. This is where the year’s most astounding projects, which are full of color, diversity, and power, come together. Spend some time studying the finer points of each of these gorgeous creations to become familiar with the most recent style innovations in design, suspension, drive train, paint, and interior.
