SVCTE Custom & Classic Car Show Looking to Showcase the Finest Classic, Collector and Vintage Automobiles

You are invited to join us for the 12th Annual Custom and Classic Car show on Friday, May 12, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. The Silicon Valley Career Technical Education car show has grown steadily in size each year with over 270 entries in 2015 (no show was held in 2016). This year, we hope to have more than 300 vehicles at our annual SkillsUSA fundraiser.SVCTE Car Show - Half Sheet Master 03-17-17.jpg Exhibitor passes are a $20 tax-deductible donation/fee per car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle in the SVCTE auto show. Pre-registration is not available.  Exhibitors will pay at the gate on the night of the event. All proceeds go directly to support students competing in SkillsUSA competitions. This past February, 58 SVCTE students won regional medals and most qualify to advance to the state competition.

According to Silicon Valley CTE’s Auto Body instructor and event organizer, Robert McTaggart, more than 1,000 spectators attend the annual event each year. Spectators enjoy voting on their favorites in eight categories: best car, best motorcycle, best bike, best car under construction, best truck, best club participation, best engine, and the best paint job in the show.

Food and soft drinks will be available for purchase. Spectator admission to the car show is free, with limited parking. No pets, please.
