What is a Saved Search? Why would I want create one?

Let's say you really like Duesenbergs.  And let's say you only want to see shows in the Southwest part of the country. Furthermore, you only are interested in shows during the spring.  With a Saved Search, you can enter all of your search criteria and save them with a named Saved Search. You could call it Duesenbergs in the Spring Time!


Every night, searches though its massive database to find the events that you are interested in. When finds your show, you'll receive an email or a mobile text message depending on your preferences.


You'll never again say: "How did I miss that show right under my nose?" is your personal assistant helping you go to more of the shows you are interested in!


When you are among the first to find out about a Car Show, you have plenty of time to get the best prices on accomodations in that area.

Why can't I find the show I am looking for?

There can be several reasons. First, the show may not yet be in our database. is the fastest growing car event database in the world, but it does take time for Show Promoters to get their car shows entered into the database.


Second, allows for very specific searches. If you ask for a Ford show in Maine, but you also select the Southwest region of the country, then you're not going to find any shows. You should be careful not to enter in conflicting search rules. Use the fewest possible to obtain the results you want.


A popular search is to request all shows within 100 miles of your ZipCode during the next 2 months. This search would be a good one to save. Remember, you must be a Premium Member to save your favorite searches.

What is a Region?

We've broken down the US into 5 Regions. Each Region can have up to 10 States.  Sometimes your favorite type of show may be in a nearby state, but you don't know which one. And you don't know how many miles out that show may be.  A Region search will sometimes help you find the perfect car show. It's just one more way to look through our massive database of events.


Caution!  Don't ask for a show in a specific State and then specify a Region.  It's possible to "lock yourself out" by choosing a State that is not in the same Region. There's not too many shows in Texas and in the Northeast Region!
