“It was important to not only feature amazing cars and the craftsman that maintain, restore and enhance performance, but to also bring together all of the individuals and organizations that participate in enhancing the classic car experience,” said Doug Miller, partner of Urban Expositions, a Clarion Events Company. “The Classic Auto Show will bring all of these elements together and allow car enthusiasts to enjoy these machines alongside the celebrities that bring classic cars to our living rooms each week.”

“We created the event to fill the needs of the market that is the perfect combination of information and celebrity entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. ” Miller continued, “and Los Angeles is the ideal location for our launch: the number of classic car fans and collectors is unlike any other region, and we’re excited to deliver an event for all of a classic automobile.”
