The Albuquerque Museum's 25th Annual Car Show

One of Albuquerque's largest car shows takes place every May at The Albuquerque Museum of Art & History.
On Sunday, May 17 car lovers will gather for the 25th Annual Albuquerque Museum/New Mexico Council of Car Clubs Automobile Show. Hundreds of antique, classic, exotic and sports cars will be on display in the museum parking lot along with trucks, motorcycles and vintage camper trailers. This year’s honored vehicle will be the Model T Ford—100 years old in 2009, and many Model T’s will be on display.

Spectator admission to the one-day car show is free. Visitors are also welcome to experience art and history treasures inside the Museum, including a special model, toy vehicle and auto art exhibition in the Museum's Special Events Room.

The cost to display a vehicle is $10.00. Registration takes place from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. on the day of the show. Participants do not have to be a member of the New Mexico Council of Car Clubs to exhibit a vehicle or to be eligible to win an award.
