Default anual uconn car show/meet

The UConn Car Club would like to invite you to be a part of our 5th Annual Spring Car Meet, on Saturday, April 19th, 2008. In the unfortunate event of rain, the show will be moved to Sunday, April 20th.

What you need to know:

W-Lot Commuter Parking Lot on the Storrs Campus
Directly off Storrs Rd (rt. 195)
Storrs CT, 06269
(see map below)

Gates open @ 9:00 am
Registration closes at 12:00 pm
Gates close when the parking lot capacity has been reached
Events will take place between 11:30-2:00
Trophies by 3:00-4:00 pm

Free to spectators
$10 dollars to show

There will be no pre-registration this year. If your group would like to park together, arrive early and drive in together as a group. The first map attached below lists parking lots in the area and their locations, so you can meet as a group before arriving at the show in order to drive in together.


Bragging Rights
For those who have yet to see one of our shows, we tend to amass some of the greatest diversity of cars in one place. Anyone who has been to a previous show can attest that there's something for everyone, including classics, domestics, imports, euros and even supercars. All makes, models and price ranges of vehicles are welcome.

Classes are listed below. There will be a 1st place and runner up for each category.

1980 & Up:

Import FWD
Import RWD
Import AWD

Euro Compact
Euro Midsize
Euro Luxury

Domestic Ford
Domestic Mopar
Domestic GM

Truck/SUV Street

Performance ($50k+)


2/3 Wheelers


Hot Rod

Specialty Awards:

Best Club (Quality)
Club Participation (Attendance)
UC3 Choice

Note: Best Club Participation Club Award goes to the club with the most participating members. Best Club Award will be awarded to the club that UC3 deems to have the highest quality entrants.

Other mentionables:
- The parking lot has a maximum capacity of around 600 cars. Once the parking lot is full, THE GATES WILL BE CLOSED. No ifs, ands, or buts. Plan accordingly and it should not be a problem.
- Arrive with the people you want to park with, there will not be any room to leave empty parking spaces open. (see pics below for parking lots outside of the show that you can congregate at prior to arrival)
- Judging will be done by the attendees and will begin at exactly noon. Those who arrive past noon will not be allowed to register for judging.
- We will have porta-potties within the show and more food vendors as well.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor please contact the club for further details. Space is limited but arrangements can be made.
