Classic Car Show Cruises into Medfield for 2018

The 2018 Medfield on the Charles Auto Show  [Sunday June 24th] is coming this Summer and we will be  celebrating the Sixteenth Anniversary of the show and it looks like we are going to do it with record numbers. The show last year filled the grounds with many of the nicest vehicles in New England. Great weather helped bringing a large group of auto enthusiasts to the event. This year the show will be back on the Hospital grounds with the shaded tree and over twelve acres to showcase our event. The venue can display well over 1,200 vehicles and we are hoping the pre registration numbers will hit an all time high. Besides the show field consisting of some of the nicest show vehicles in New England, we have the FEATURE VEHICLES being makes made in the 1958 and 1968 model years. Paying tribute to those two anniversary years that brought us some everlasting designs and memorable engineering marvels. We also have a specialty show field this year paying tribute to “Classics”. There are several Pre War classics already pre registered like Bugatti, Packard and Cadillac. We are hoping for a large display of these works of art that weathered the test of time. There will be Cash prizes and special trophies in this display. Over 110 trophies will be awarded in many categories. Specialty trophies will be handed out at noon allowing us to speed up the awards that will start this year at 2:30. Dee Jay Doc will be the MC and keep things going in the main show field as he has done for many years. The food court will allow a break from the action to get something to eat and drink while relaxing before hitting the show fields to finish up the day. There will be tables and chairs provided this year in the food court. There will be a “Big Truck” display with Big Rigs, Fully restored old Macks and much more.

Sixteen years ago we never thought the show would grow in size that we would fill the show fields to capacity. Each year the numbers grew and the spectator crowds increased drastically. The new location in Medfield allows us the opportunity to grow to be the largest Car Show in the area. Last years show was very successful and the weather was perfect.  Very easy access onto and off the site with ample on site parking for spectators is a huge plus. There will be a few changes for spectator parking to include more Handicapped parking, NEW THIS YEAR will be Motorcycle parking right at the entrance and specialty parking for large buses. Free parking and the same admission fee will continue.The address is Medfield State Hospital at 45 Hospital Rd. Medfield, Ma. 02052 for those who need to GPS the location.

Foot notes:


FEATURE VEHICLES for this year will be Makes & Models built for the 1958 and 1968 model years.

ADDEDED SEVERAL CATEGORIES  to our already large class list. Please check show flier and class list.

Dee Jay Doc will be playing the tunes and providing information as our MC for the Show . He is the voice of many a car show and his lengthy career speaks for itself. He is considered one of the best. We Thank Doc very much for anchoring our show year after year.

33 CLASSES and over 110TROPHIES up for grabs going to the best in their respective classes. In the past several years the judging has been difficult. 1st, 2nd and 3rd are usually divided by 1 to 2 points. There is a new judging format this year with stricter guidelines. The show field is open to all “show cars”, but you don’t need to be judged if that is your preference. The show is meant to have fun and enjoy the day.

CALIBER OF SHOW VEHICLES IS AMAZING.This is a show for the hobbyist. The public loves to stroll through the show fields and admire all the hard work put into keeping these antiques and classics in pristine condition. When a father and son look at a Custom or fully chromed out Street Rod, they know the hours and effort put into the building of that one of a kind auto. We are fortunate to be able to relive our past through chrome and sheet metal. This event is our own “American Graffiti” or a recanting of our “Happy Days”. Wondering what was in James Dean’s mind, did we really live “Grease”, was The Beach Boys “Little Deuce Coupe” LP in all our houses? Car Shows let the minds go back in time, a really good time.

For the younger crowd, you provide them with a memory and hopefully an inspiration to keep this hobby going long into the future. You will see a Delorean there but it will remain in 2017. You will walk around it and remember the movie Back to the Future. Elvis. James Dean or Marilyn Monroe’s name will pop up as well as Betty Boop.  Rt. 66 or the birth of the first American sports car will be echoed in conversations. Corvette Hill will be bursting at the seams. NCRS and the contingent of Corvette enthusiasts will fill the hilltop and surrounding areas hopefully with over two hundred “Vettes”.

LOTS OF CHROME and serious engineering will be displayed on the show field. You’ll see a 1911 Ford, a very rare Bugatti, Lamborghini or Ferrari to a fully blown muscle car or completely restored antiques. You’ll find something to remember long after the show ends. Come be part of one of the best shows in the area and enjoy yourself.

Thank you one and all and look forward to a spectacular show Sunday June 24, 2018, 9-3.
