Why Wheel-O-Rama

I have been going to all the different Car shows up and down the island over the years and I see a lot of the same cars out at these events. I wondered why no-one was putting on a all wheeled show and then I realized that it was my idea so I needed to make it happen.

I thought by adding categories and throwing the doors wide open I Could invite everyone out to show off their wheels. We were also hearing that people wanted a Festival Atmosphere while you look at all the Autos!

Categories like Art Cars, Chrome Chrome and more Chrome, Airbrushed Murals, Restomods, Film and Television Autos, Rat Rods, Tuners, Classic Cars and Trucks. We hope to have something for everyone.

IF you got a Unicycle with a V8 we want to see it.

Thanks to our Web Friends for their online listings. These are great sources for other Auto Shows.

I have loved cars since i was a kid in the 1960's. I have been going to and taking pictures at Show N Shines since the days of the indoor SpeedSport Shows at the PNE starting in the late 1970's. My passion for cars and nostalgia runs deep and every show season I take thousands of pictures and am so happy to be able to share what I take with all my friends and all the owners. I love hanging with the Carshow/Cruisin crowd.....Best people ever! Dan
