Car lovers and enthusiasts will be excited to hear that the final meet-up of the car show season will be taking place at Tatawaw Park in Moose Jaw on Sept. 25. This will be the last big car show before the end of the season when specialty car owners store their treasures away.
The Next Gen Car Show, sponsored by the Next Gen Car Club, will include a show and shine, as well as a competition.
For the show and shine, the vehicles registered will be awarded a trophy based on several categories. These categories have not been named yet, but previous years’ categories included best in the show, best classic, best muscle, best import, and best modified.
The competition portion of this event will include the limbo competition, the bass competition, and the exhaust competition. The limbo competition determines which car is the lowest; the bass competition is to do with the interior stereo system of the vehicle, as the owner will demo their stereo system and the vehicle with the best system will win that competition. For the exhaust competition, a fan favourite, two cars are parked side-by-side and start revving their engines; the crowd then decides who has the loudest car and the winner continues to the next round.
"I really like how diverse it is. So, you get everything from your 1920 rat rods all the way to the newest supercars. It's a really great assortment of vehicles. All years, all makes, all models are welcome, and it’s also a family show so kids enter free, and pets enter free," says Austin Murray, the founder of the Next Gen Car Club.
The Next Gen Car club is a Saskatchewan-based club that organizes community events, social events, pop-ups, and scheduled meets.
The showcase will run from 12 noon to 5:00 p.m. with the show and competition officially kicking-off at 1:00 p.m.
The fee to enter a show car is $10; cost to visit the car show is $5 with kids and pets free.
"We usually do draws and giveaways leading up to the event...” says Murray. “Under our season opener, we gave a ton of stuff away. We gave away a Nintendo Switch; we gave away a laptop; we also have some of our vendors donate some items; we give away merchandise, and then a few other big items like that."
This event will also feature food trucks, local vendors, and a live DJ for those attending to enjoy. If you are looking to operate a booth, you will have to register by direct messaging the Next Gen Car Club on Facebook.
