Teach Respect and Appreciation for Classic Cars to the Younger Generation

Take the kids, but don’t let them run around when attending cars shows held at businesses, or anywhere. It’s a great thing to pass an appreciation for classic cars along to kids. Businesses and organizations host these events as a way to share a love for vintage automobiles, and attending one is a special way to show appreciation for these classics.

Don’t Be Rude

It’s okay if you don’t like every car at the show, but there’s no reason for everyone there to hear your opinions. Try to remember that if there were no exhibitors, there would be no car show. This applies to both attendees and exhibitors. It takes a variety of cars to make a great cruise-in, and there’s no reason to be offensive to other people at these family-friendly events.

Show the Hosting Businesses Some Love

It takes a lot of work to put on a great car show, and a lot of businesses do it to bring new awareness to their products and services while sharing the enthusiasm for vintage vehicles. Check out the offerings at the hosting site, and if you are ever interested in the businesses at Wilkes Barre PA and get hungry or feel like shopping, consider buying some food at the vendor stands or heading inside for some quick shopping or a bite to eat. This encourages the businesses to keep putting forth the effort to host more shows in the future.

Look, But Don’t Touch

This probably should have been the first car show etiquette tip. When you’re at a car show, the point is you’re supposed to look at them. But, people invest a LOT of time and money into their rides, and it’s inappropriate to touch. So make sure you, your kids, and any pets you bring to the show, don’t touch anyone’s classic vehicle.
