Another great year of car shows is in the works! We’re looking forward to attending some of our old favorites again as well as stopping by a few new ones. One show we will be looking forward to is coming up this month, the 2011 Silicon Valley International Auto Show. While most of our shows are classic car shows this one highlights the newest models currently on the market. If you are wanting to get a preview of what your going to be seeing in the next model year or in the upcoming years this is the show to see. And unlike the classic car shows, your invited to set behind the wheel and get to know these car up close and personal.

Quickly following the International Car show in San Jose will be the always hot Sacramento Autorama in February. This ones got it all, specialty vehicles, classic cars, motorcycles, muscle cars, hot rods, and other fine custom cars.

A little further down the road is the Pacific Coast Dream Machines show.
