Here at AMSOIL, we love everything with an engine. We are a company of car enthusiasts and we share your passion of working on our vehicles, fine-tuning their performance or cruising down the highway.
The summer of 2016 was all about car shows. If we weren’t at a car show, we were prepping for the next one. We are proud to be the Official Oil of Car Craft Summer Nationals, Hot August Nights, Import Face-Off, Back to the ’50s and Carlisle Events. As a wrap-up from the events, we put together a best-of-the-best from each of the summer car shows.
Car Craft Summer Nationals
The “Nats” is the largest street-machine event of its kind, attracting thousands of American rear-wheel-drive vehicles from around the world. More than 3,500 street machines, hot rods, customs, muscle cars and much more are available to awe over as well as drive. Cars dating from the 1920s to the present are on display.
Hot August Nights
Started to help fill a void in tourism during the hot August months in Reno, Nev., Hot August Nights is the world’s premier classic-car event. Every August, more than 6,000 hot rods, along with music from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s fill the streets of Reno and Sparks, allowing enthusiasts to travel back in time.
Known as the most innovative import series in the country, Import Face-Off spans the country following market trends. Series activities include a car, truck and bike show; 1/4-mile drag racing; DJs expo; burnout contest and more. In total, the IFO Series pays out $250,000 in cash, trophies and prizes each year.
Back to the ’50s
Every year, more than 11,000 street rods, customs, classics and restored vehicles, all pre-1964, converge on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Inspired by the cult classic “American Graffiti,” the MSRA started Back to the ’50s more than 40 years ago to bring the 1950s from the screen to the streets.
