2018 Car Show
Come One, Come All: ididit Car Show Now Welcomes All Makes, Models & Years
TECUMSEH, MICHIGAN: Set for Sept. 15, the 2018 ididit Car Show & Open House will be bigger and better than ever, now that owners of any show-worthy vehicle—regardless of year, make or model—are invited to participate.
An end-of-summer tradition dating back to 1991, the event previously only showcased hot rods, street rods, muscle cars, sports cars and trucks model year 1985 and older.
“We are extremely excited to open up our annual car show to all of the great vehicles in Michigan and throughout the Great Lakes region, regardless of year, make or model” said Ted Keating of ididit. “We want everyone who loves beautiful cars and trucks to join us in celebrating the hot-rodding lifestyle.”
Held on the ididit campus in Tecumseh, the ididit Car Show & Open House offers a day of fun for the whole family including facility tours, a vendor tent, food trucks and a live DJ. Attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods for the food drive, and the Lenawee Humane Society will raffle a custom golf cart featuring an ididit steering column.
Of course, the cars are the real stars, with owners competing for coveted trophies made in-house by ididit in eight categories:
- 1948-Older Street Rod
- 1949-’64 Car
- 1965-’79 Car
- 1980-Newer Car
- 1948-’66 Truck
- 1967-’87 Truck
- 1988-Newer Truck
- Best Restored
Also new this year is a T-shirt design contest involving students from the graphic imaging classes at LISD Tech Center in Adrian, Michigan. Submissions will be posted on Facebook prior to the show, with the top vote-getter becoming the official T-shirt design for the event.
The open house tradition was started nearly three decades ago as a way for ididit to thank customers and the local community for their support. For those who wish to print and mail, Download Registration Form Here.
