Whether you are a classic car aficionado and hope to show your vehicle in one of the Myrtle Beach South Carolina car shows, or simply appreciate the looks of these antique classic cars, Myrtle Beach car shows offer the perfect opportunity to spend a day outdoors. These types of events run several times through the spring, summer and fall and vary in size from small, special events to large-scale classic car events.

This is one of the largest classic car shows in the Southeast and takes place one weekend in mid-March. It is held every year since 1987 at the old Myrtle Square Mall in Myrtle Beach. This show has grown extensively over the years and participants as well as spectators come from across the U.S. and Canada. The event raises money for many different charities.
