The Speed and Custom Car Show will rev its engine this weekend at Western Fair District as 90,000 square feet of shiny dream cars come together for Southwestern Ontario’s largest indoor car show.

The event will feature countless cars, trucks, motorcycles, hot-rods, racers and one-of-a-kind vehicles under one roof. Featured this year will be the 75th anniversary ‘Deuce’, a car which was introduced in 1932 by Ford Motor Company and was a design and technological milestone that became the quintessential hot rod platform. Also on display will be the ‘Plunkett Duchess,’ a 1941 Custom Cadillac Limo built for King Edward.

Star of ‘Vegas Rat Rods’, Grant Schwartz, will be at the show signing autographs Saturday March 18th and Sunday March 19th.

Back this year will be the ‘Panel Jam’ where you can see the unique artwork of the pinstriper community. Attendees can watch and learn as the professionals apply finishing touches to their metal canvas right before their eyes. Also back this year is the crushed car for guests to guess and the Art Auction and Awards from which all proceeds from the live auction will be going to Autism Dog Services.
