Q:  Getting in to park was a HUGE problem at the last show.  Has anything been done to improve this?
AMost definitely, YES!  We spoke with the venue about this both during and after the show.  They identified the causes of the problem and have positively addressed it to make sure vehicles will flow smoothly and have enough space for spectators to park.  This was extremely important to us.  The venue has hosted many large events after our 2021 show and they have experienced great improvement.

Q:  Will masks be required at the show?
AYes.  In order to remain in complaince with local, county, and state regulations regarding COVID-19, masks will be required while at the show.  There will also be sanitation stations throughout the show so you're able to keep your hands sanitized.  With all of the different variants out there, we want everyone to be safe.

Q:  When do the gates open for show cars to enter?
A The gates will open at 7:00am for vehicles entered in the show and will close promptly at 10:00am

Q:  Will there be day-of-show registration?
AUnfortunately, no.  The show usually sells out well in advance of the deadline, so please register early!

Q:  How much does it cost to register?
A:  Registration is $45 per vehicle.

Q:  Is there any charge for spectators?
AYes.  Adults 13 and over will be $15 to enter, Children 12 and under are FREE.

Q:  Why the change for spectators?
AThat's a tough one.  Due to the change in venue, this was something completely unavoidable, not to mention that other shows of this size also charge for spectator entry.  It was an extremely difficult choice for us to make.

Q:  Do all of the cars have to stay in place until 3:00?

AYes.  This is both for the safety of the general public and for the vehicle entered.  There are NO LINEUPS to leave early.  We also strongly discourage people from revving their engines during the show.

Q:  Will the show vehicles be allowed to put up any pop-up tents, canopies, or umbrellas?
AUnfortunatey, no they may not.  This is due to safety and liability issues that may arise.  There have been many instances in the past where one of these items have toppled and caused damage to a display vehicle.  We do, however, allow hand-held umbrellas.  If the weather is sunny and hot, we advise anyone attending to plan accordingly.

Q:  Can I bring my dog to the show?
AWhile we love our four-legged friends, Irwindale Speedway has a very strict policy prohibiting pets on the premises, however they do allow service animals (note: service animals are not the same as "comfort" animals).  Please be mindful of the weather on the day of the show.  Remember, their paws burn quickly on hot pavement.  Please be considerate of your pets.

Q:  Can we film the show using a drone?
AUnfortunately, no.  Irwindale Speedway has a very strict policy regarding the use of drones on their property.  You can take as many pictures and video as you like with your traditional cameras.

Q:  Will I be able to park together with my car club, if we're in the same class?

AIf you wish to park with your friends or car club, we recommend that you get in line as a group and enter the show together.  There are NO reserved spaces.

Q:  Can I tow my car into the show?
ANo.  We will not have any additional space available to accommodate a tow vehicle.

Q:  Where can spectators park?
ASpectators can park at Irwindale Speedway, in the parking lots available.  The attendants will direct you to the spectator parking area.

Q: Will you have parking for vehicle tow trailers?
AAt our last show, we were able to accommodate tow trailers for show participants.  We anticipate being able to make the same accommodations for our 2022 show.

Q:  How soon can registered show vehicles get in line?
AMany of our volunteers arrive before dawn on show day and have noticed cars beginning to line up.  We recommend arriving as early as you are able to, in order to enter and be parked in your class quickly.

Q:  If I have a question regarding my entry, prior to the day of the show, who would I contact?
A:  You can call our hotline at (626) 209-9138 or send an email to info@fabulousfordsforever.com.  We will do our best to respond to you as quickly as possible.

Q:  We plan on bringing the family and staying near the venue.  Is there a hotel discount available?
A:  Yes, we have secured a discount with the Courtyard by Marriott in nearby Monrovia.  Details can be found on our website in the hotel discount page.

Q:  I have a really cool display sign that I want to show next to my car.  Will I be able to?
A:  While we think these signs are cool, we do not allow any display signs, mirrors, carpeting, or "For Sale" signs in the show area.  This is to protect your vehicle from damage and prevent any accidents with spectators.
