It’s that time of year again for car and truck shows to start appearing across the state of Florida. The Florida weather makes it ideal for shows to be held in our state. Here in Southwest Florida we have an abundance of car and truck shows starting in the fall and continuing through the winter.
If you want to check out some of the shows go to Premium Productions web site at: http://premiumcarshows.com/wppremium/. Premium Productions produces many of the shows and provides professional judges. Trophies are awarded for different classes (stock and modified). If you want to enter your car or truck in the show, you can do it right on their web site. You can pay by credit card or Pay Pal. You can also do a mail in registration or register on site the day of the show. Shows are held rain or shine. They will only be cancelled if there is severe weather.
