Cars rev up for Carson City car show

Classic car lovers by the thousands will roll, stroll and ride through Carson City, Nev. where enthusiasts and owners will swap stories about how they maintained their vintage cars and what kind of work went into them.

From engines to parts to old time rock ‘n’ roll and great food by dozens of vendors, the annual show provides anyone who loves cars a place to see some of the best in the West.

A pre-kickoff cruise on Thursday, Aug. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. begins at the Plaza Hotel and Conference Center, 805 S. Carson St.

Festivities on Friday, Aug. 3 include a street dance and show and shine at the Carson Nugget.

New to the car show is the Silver Dollar Sock Hop at the Carson Nugget on Aug. 4 from 6 to 10 p.m. (ccnugget.com/). The event features old time rock ‘n roll music from the 1950s and ’60s, dance, costumes and a Hula Hoop contest.

The main Silver Dollar Classic Show at Mills Park, 1111 East William St. in Carson City, is free and with enough space for food vendors, picnics and car gazing.

Car displays, a Kiwanis pancake breakfast and all-day judging runs Aug. 4 to 5 at Mills Park. A barbecue and awards show will conclude the weekend festivities on Sunday, Aug. 5.
