Collector Car Appreciation Day
Friday July 14, 2017
Thu Feb 25
Join Heacock Classic and our friends from Carlisle Events as we all host the Second Annual Winter Florida AutoFest at the Sun ‘n Fun complex right here in Lakeland, FL.
We’re bringing in some new features, including an orphan car display and popular known features include an automotive Swap Meet where pieces, parts, merchandise and collectibles are for sale. The Car Corral allows you to market your classic vehicle directly to over 40,000 visitors. There’s even two-day, 400 car collector car auction presented by Carlisle Auctions right onsite. The November auction sold out weeks in advance and moved millions of dollars worth of classics.
Also returning are a pair of car shows; Cars and Coffee on February 27 backed by the duPont REGISTRY and a two-day car show powered by Carlisle Events on February 27-28. In addition, the Air & Coach Concours returns for those who enjoy living and traveling in luxury. Enjoy plane rides, seminars, and the onsite Aerospace Museum will once again be open.
Onsite for three of the four event days will be Tom Wopat, best known as Luke Duke from TV’s Dukes of Hazzard. Tom will meet with fans of the iconic program Friday, Saturday and Sunday of event weekend. His appearance will be flanked, of course, by the General Lee orange Dodge Charger and a Hazzard theme is expected for the event.
The weekend is fun for the entire family and the fun comes with acres of FREE parking, a $10 daily admission (kids 12 and under free), great food and the chance to pick up amazing pieces of automotive history. The aforementioned Carlisle Events car show offers awards for participants, access for two for the entire weekend with registration and a chance to hang out with thousands of car crazy folks just like them. There’s even a Manufacturers Midway with top vendors within the industry including Meguiars, Amsoil and Heacock Classic. Visit www.carlisleevents.com for full details
