In Idaho, there exist many small pockets of dedicated fans. Regardless of their specific niche, Idahoans represent a unique collection of individuals that are especially committed to their interests. In the world of automobiles, Idaho actually has a fairly substantial following of auto show supporters. Whether they are interested in muscle cars, classics, cruisers, or something else, there is a show in the state geared toward that genre.

Refurnishing, refinishing, and restoring is the name of our game but we share the interests of classic and historic car owners by nature. Whether engine, interior, dent, headlight, or other repairs are needed, our staff at McDowells have serviced a wide range of auto owners – specialty auto owners included. In doing so, we have realized that auto shows are a regular and favorite occurrence in Idaho but a gap exists in the absence of a comprehensive list of events.

Below we have listed the auto shows, benefits, and other events for Summer 2019. And trust us, there is something out there for you!
