We have gearheads. What you have to remember about most of Florida is, we do not suffer from the winter like a lot of other areas do. So we have events all over Florida year around. Large sponsored car shows like the Daytona Turkey Run to small club events. Monthly and weekly cruise-in's all over the place. Weekend morning Cars & Coffee events. As I mentioned below, Miami-Dade county shows are dead, but we have cars down here, and we have the Homestead Speedway, Palm Beach Raceway, Sebring and Daytona. Broward is less than an hour away from me, Palm Beach less than 2. Go to central Fla and you have weekly events at Old Town. There are events at Disney at least once a year. The West coast, Fort Myers, Naples, Tampa are only a couple of hours across the state where they have many events, attractions like Fords Garage. We have a large retirement community north of Orlando called The Villages. That has gotten so large, and full of car owners that they have a club and put on monthly shows. I'm typing all this but take a look here http://flacarshows.com/
for a very good listing of what is going on in Florida. Thank you Tara!
I have not had my car to take to shows, events for many years, so I know I am a bit out of the loop. But I am hoping to change all that this year, and then you will see my car all over the state, and then beyond. I will admit, I see thoes events in Texas and Cali, and I wish we had the turnout here. It does seem the newer gen cars are dominating the events these days, and people are keeping their classics tucked away in their garages.
Yes, we have 1/8 mile play ground at Homestead and the real 1/4 mile track at PBIR. Both are usually pretty packed when they have their events.
