It is time to start a new year of car shows. The 2016 Cavalcade of Customs in Cincinnati kicked off the season. For a lot of people that starts in the spring but with the inside shows it keeps us Northern States car guys engaged through the winter months.
This years’ Cavalcade of Customs in Cincinnati was a big success.
There were all segments of the collector car hobby represented. We had the high end customs, drag cars, rat rods, hot rods, and custom trucks. We also had the some cool things that will always enhance a car show.
The show had builders with their cars on display, pin up girl contest, beard contest, and lots of vending booths with tools and car accessories.
It feels great starting off the new year with this type of show. We teamed up with our partners Classic Auto Insurance Agency. Ami G was on display.
We were talking cars and talking collector car insurance all weekend long. It was a great weekend!
The inaugural collector car show for Ami G. went off without a hitch this past weekend. The classic car show – Cavalcade of Customs, downtown Cincinnati – provided a great avenue for the 1965 Chevy Malibu to jump start her touring career. With countless hot rods, muscle cars and customs, Ami G. felt right at home.
Of course, the people are what make these events so special. We met a lot of new faces as well as some familiar ones at our American Modern booth. Most people could not believe it was the same classic car. They were impressed that 100% of the repairs and restoration were done by American Modern employees, with the exception of the machine work on the engine.
Multiple times, visitors to the booth asked if American Modern specializes in the business of restoring cars as well as selling insurance. I will take that as a compliment! One attendee, while looking over Ami G, said: “American Modern obviously knows what they are doing and truly cares about these old, classic cars and the hobby”.
Ami G. attracted a large assortment of new collector car enthusiasts and admirers at the Cavalcade of Customs, especially after hearing her story and seeing what she looked like 2 years ago. The associates at American Modern Insurance Group provided her with this new-found life. Everyone that had a hand in bringing her back should be very proud of themselves for restoring her into a beautiful restomod classic car.
Ami G. is looking forward to her next car show. Stay tuned for more details!
