It’s almost impossible to believe the holidays are already behind us and we’ve closed the door on another year. Here at Carolina Classics at the Capital we’ve spent the last few months tweaking, revising and, in some cases, reinventing our model for what’s fast becoming one of the most popular classic car shows in the Southeast.

Classics at the Capital Car Show

Last August, an estimated 40,000 people flooded the streets of Downtown Raleigh to see hundreds of beautiful cars and trucks on display. More than 7,000 of them paid to tour the exhibits and vendor areas inside the Raleigh Convention Center, and our goal in 2012 is to convert more of those attendees into customer prospects for our vendors and sponsors.

NEW FOR 2012: One contiguous show footprint, indoors and out! All spectators will pay to enter.

NEW FOR 2012: Vendors can choose indoor or outdoor spaces! Same price. First-come, first-served.

NEW FOR 2012: Reduced indoor pricing for all cars! Bright, air-conditioned and secure all weekend.

What hasn’t changed is the great downtown atmosphere in North Carolina’s centrally located capital city. We’ll still have huge crowds, live oldies music, radio station broadcasts, TV coverage, conveniently located restaurants, bars and hotels, and the Friday Night Cruise-In (free to classic car participants!)
