At a car show you will want your car to stand out to the people that are judging your car so you will want to keep it cleaned and well detailed for any car show that might come up in the weeks or months to come. It is important to keep your car clean from the exterior to the interior of the car.
The only reason I can think of why anyone would ever take a project car to a car show is to get some ideas and opinions. Nobody should ever take a project car to a car show wanting to win that is just crazy but if it is answers and opinions and ideas you seek you should take it.
There is a trend today that is slowly beginning to build steam and that is the hybrid car. With incomes rising not as fast as the price of gas, many people are looking for alternative ways to lower the amount of gas consumption they have everyday. This can include different ways such as walking to work, riding your bike, or even carpooling with others.
