The Central Arizona College (CAC) Aravaipa campus hosted a fun and successful car show on Saturday, April 27, 2013. There were many beautiful cars, hamburgers and hot dogs, great music playing and many people out enjoying the day.

Antiques, hot rods, motorcycles, even a monster truck was awaiting us at this year’s CAC car show. It doesn’t matter what type of car you might be interested in there are many to choose from that will peak your interest. Seeing all the incredible work that has been done to these vehicles is just amazing.

For those interested in learning about cars, there are a lot of great educational opportunities at car shows. Most of the vehicle owners are happy to talk about their vehicles and what they have done with the vehicle.

Some people find that attending a car show is inspiring for them to work on their own car. Some people even end up buying a car after the car show. This can be a great hobby and since most cars that are maintained and restored properly resell for good prices, it can also be a great investment.

Many families enjoy going to car shows because it is a great activity held outdoors and allows most people some great quality bonding time. We are able to break free from our normal, busy routine and get out and look at some beautiful cars.
