  • Back to the 80s - 2024

    Saturday, June 8, 2024 (9 A.M. - 3 P.M.)

    If it was made in the 80's, bring it out! Whether domestic or imported, car, truck or bike, showroom stock or modified to the point of being unrecognizable - we want YOU there. If you drove it wearing blue eye shadow or acid-washed jeans, we want to see it! (The eye shadow is optional this time around). Even if it's your rusty project car, or daily driver (we really do love those things) - If it was made in the 80's... bring it out!

    In addition to the cars, you'll be entertained by Top 80's Music, a Costume Contest, a T-Shirt Cannon, and a variety of supporting sponsors!

    Attendee Cost: $15 preregistered, $20 at the gate.
    All Spectators are FREE!
    Sponsorships available from $100-$300.
