3 of The Best Cars Shows in the Hudson Valley




Spring is here and before you know it, people will be on the road with their warm-weather cars. I will admit I do get a bit jealous when I see the first convertible heading down the road on a sunny day.

Growing up my dad always had an MG convertible. As a matter of fact, he taught me how to drive a stick shift in one. We always had a cool car but my dad wasn't really a motorhead. His dad owned a gas station and wrecker service and my uncles all drove race cars but no really ever did the car show thing it was more about racing.

Hudson Valley Car Show Season for 2024

I don't think I went to my first car show until after college. I knew a lot of people who had cars they showed but for some reason, I never got into owning that type of car. I realize there are many different types of car shows but trust me when I tell you no car I ever called my own was car show material.

Just because you don't have the type of car one might find at a car show doesn't mean you can't have fun at a car show. There is so much to see and it is fun to think about what if you had a car like the ones at the show.

I remember being at one of the Mustang Club of Orange County shows in Goshen one year and wishing I could have any one of the cars there that day. If you get a chance to go to that show you will definitely be channeling your inner Nicolas Cage and be looking for your Eleanor.
