Meet Guidelines


FOR SALE SIGNS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON SHOW VEHICLES. Vehicles for sale are welcome in the Car Corral.

Vehicles that are classified as foreign are those that were produced when the manufacturer’s main office was outside the US or Canada, regardless of where the vehicle was actually assembled. Conversely, vehicles classified as domestic are those that were produced when the manufacturer’s main office was in the US or Canada, regardless of where it was actually assembled.

All show vehicles must have a fully charged UL approved fire extinguisher placed alongside the left front tire.

To be fair to show spectators on Saturday, all vehicles should remain on the show field until the parade begins at 3:30PM.

Camping sites are available at the nearby Little River State Park (Tel. 802-244-7103). Camping on site is allowed only for Flea Market registrants. No camping is allowed in the parking area or show field.

Free registration is offered to show vehicles of model year 1925 and older. Also, if you register two vehicles, the registration fee for the third is waived.

Judging Guidelines

The standard for evaluating all vehicles judged by the show Judging staff is, “THE CONDITION AND CONFIGURATION OF THE VEHICLE WHEN DELIVERED BY THE MANUFACTURER TO THE SELLING DEALER”.

Class judging begins at 9AM on Sunday. Vehicles must be on the show field in the proper class no later than 9:30AM to be judged.

Vehicles eligible for the new Special Interest Class include all vehicles manufactured in 1999 through 2023. However, it is our hope that uncommon and limited production vehicles such as electric vehicles, sports cars and exotics will register in this class. This class will not be judged and is for display only.

Vehicles eligible for the Modified Class include personalized stock, hot rods, street rods, resto mods and kit cars. This class will not be judged and is display only.

Senior Class vehicles include all Best of Show winners since year 2000 and all first place class winners for two consecutive years. All Senior Class vehicles in attendance must be on the show field prepared for judging at 1PM on Saturday in order to quality for, or re-qualify for, the Senior Class. Owners must be with their vehicles. Any Senior Class vehicle in attendance and not on the field prepared for judging at 1PM on Saturday, will be eliminated from the Senior Class status.

If you might be interested in helping out as a judge at the show, please contact the chief judge at mbennettphd@gmail.com.
