Annual CARS OF DREAMS Show to benefit Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation
This weekend, thousands of South Floridians and car enthusiasts from around the country are anticipated to arrive for an annual pilgrimage to one of the world’s greatest car collections. The 4th Annual South East Rods & Customs “Cars of Dreams” Car Show and Raffle will be held at the Cars of Dreams Museum and adjacent lot (Northlake Boulevard and US I) in North Palm Beach on Sunday, March 11. The Car Show will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with the museum open from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
It will be a car lovers’ paradise as attendees browse hundreds of restored classics, vintage hot rods and new luxury cars. Spectators will also have a special invitation to visit the private Cars of Dreams Museum, housing one of the world’s greatest car collections. The car show is free; admission into the museum is a $10 donation to Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation, all proceeds benefit the organization.
"We are thrilled to once again host this unique event," said Donnie Hancock, President of South East Rods & Customs Car Club. After one of its members was served by Hospice of Palm Beach County, the nonprofit club made Hospice its primary charity. "Hospice is always there for everyone. We created this event as our way of ensuring that others in the community receive the same incredible care when needed."
The South Florida non-profit, classic, street rod and collectible car club organizes the event each year and invites enthusiasts to show off their “rides” and compete for awards in the judged show. The day of family fun also features raffles, including a drawing for a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, a 50/50 drawing, entertainment, food and beverages.
Rarely open to the public, the Cars of Dreams Museum displays 100 classic cars set in a replica Small Town USA. The distinctive venue celebrates the evolution in dream car design in a comprehensive collection spanning more than 50 years of automotive excellence. Housed in a building larger than a football field, museum owner John Staluppi, and his wife Jeannette, created period settings for the cars including a 1950s garage, a fire station and town square all surrounding a hand-carved carousel. Staluppi opens the museum to the public only twice a year for charity events.
Guests are invited to enter their wheels in the show. Car pre-registration is $20 and includes two tickets to the museum. Day of show registration is $25 per car.
