I bet at least once in your life your parents or friends have taken you to either a car or boat show right? My father and I are huge car/ truck fanatics and have been to more cars shows than I can imagine. There are a lot of different shows around the country involving cars, boats, guns and really whatever you can think of, but the some of the best ones in the country involve ones that revolve the trucking industry, the most popular ones for 2017 are listed below.

If you love classic cars like myself this is the show for you. This show includes cars ranging from 1910 to 1965, which to me is the best years for cars and trucks. Start your engines and head to this show for some fun.
