The two VAEers in charge of lining up club events for 2021, have a dilemma. Normally, by now, the complete coming year’s event have been scheduled.
We have no idea when the virus “ALL CLEAR” will be announced.
We do have plans for tours, throughout Vermont, that will be announced in the coming months. Stay tuned.
Vermont Antique & Classic Car Meet
August 13 @ 8:00 am - August 15 @ 5:00 pm
Much of last years Covid cancelled Show highlights are carried over to this year with 34 judged show car classes including military, street rods and motorcycles. Don’t miss the huge automotive flea market, car corral, and Show car parade through downtown Waterbury. Added special events feature Vintage Fashion Judging, Hot Wheels and valve cover racing. Unique and popular is the Crafter’s Tent featuring Vermont Artisans and their creations for sale. Sunday focuses on judging followed by Award presentations.
VAE members are encouraged to pre-register at vtauto.org or on site register their favorite antique and classic car or truck. You don’t need to be judged if you don’t want to. Show off your antique to the thousands of folks and families that visit the event.
Proceeds from the Show are used to support our education programs which encourage and recognize student achievement in automotive technical programs. Our Golden Wrench Award and Skills USA support recognize outstanding students at the high school, level, whereas scholarship awards to Vermont Technical College helps deserving students complete education at the associate degree level.
As usual you will find hundreds of vehicles on display with a new class being added this year. Class 26 sport utility vehicles through 1996. The show also features a large Flea market, a car Corral and Vermont crafters tent you never know what you might find. We are happy that the tractors and race cars will return again this year. The Saturday afternoon parade goes through Waterbury Village and by the great train station. Come back to the Train Station Saturday night for the Street dance. There will be lots of room to display your old vehicles. Sunday is judging and awards day.
