Auto shows are the safest places to practice pretend engine noises without attracting feral lawn mowers in heat. Rev up with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two admission tickets for any single day of the Speed and Custom Car Show from March 25–27 at the Western Fair Entertainment Centre on King Street (a $20 value, including HST). Children 5 and younger are admitted for free when accompanied by an adult, and those ages 6–12 get in for $5.
The Speed and Custom Car show is a three-day gear head’s oasis of race vehicles, hot rods, classics, and more. Visitors can vroom by to view striking automobiles, such as the 1923 Ford Model T, the 1965 Chevrolet Bel Air wagon, and the 2010 Chevrolet Impala SS. This year, the show is a combination of two previous area auto events: Western Fair’s Auto Expo and the CPT Racing Experience, resulting in a Frankensteined super expo that will rouse villagers and ravage cities while maintaining top highway mileage. Choose to test your pit skills with the interactive Pit Stop Tire Change game, shop around for collectibles and memorabilia, or chat up one of many on-deck auto experts. Saturday, March 26 includes an awards ceremony that will establish category crushers, such as Best in Show, Best Club Display, and Most Congenial Muffler. Dozens of local and international businesses are hosting exhibits, such as London City Chrysler, California Carsmetics, and Performance Unlimited. Free parking is available, downtown next to OLG Slots.
