A: Absolutely! ANY brand of car, truck, or motorcycle is welcome at our show.

Q: I don't have a car to display at the show - why should I come?
A: We offer a great environment for the entire family: a disc jockey, great food on-site, and a show field of more than 300 vehicles of every description. And, of course, the fantastic Walter P. Chrysler Museum! Admission to the Museum is only $4.00 on CEMA Car Show day! That's a saving of 50%!

And be sure to attend these Special Activities during the CEMA Car Show (The presentations by Mr. Hyde and Mr. Rockwell will be conducted in the Museum's Auditorium and will require Museum admission):
