No prior booking is required and displaying your vehicle really couldn't be easier. You can simply show up and REGISTER at the gate then find a place to park in the show area.  Just $25 for cars and $20 for motorcycles.   However, pre-registration for a discounted fee is available starting at $18 for cars and $15 for motorcycles.  Pre-registering your car or motorcycle saves you money and it significantly reduces the amount of administrative work that we must do on the day of the show, which is quite considerable.  And since pre-registering assists us to prepare in advance, when you do arrive at the event, you'll be whisked right into the show with no wait at all.  So, please consider pre-registering (see below link)..
