Thank You, Tucson!

We had a great Car Show on Saturday October 21, 2023!

Next Show is October 19, 2024

Our Imagine Seventeen Show surpassed all our expectations. Thank you to all our car and truck gals and guys who got up at the crack of dawn to polish, wax, and prepare their most treasured vehicles for our charity show. This was the best quality and most exciting entries in our history. The crowds did not slow down with the heat of the day. They wandered up and down the 23 rows, laughed, talked shop, enjoyed the food, the Classics Club, vendors and our festival atmosphere. Even our volunteers had a great time! The number of stories on that field of over 420 cars and trucks would astound and delight you. Thank you for coming and enjoying a fabulous day at Rotary Club of Tucson’s Tucson Classics Car Show. If you didn’t make it – you missed a very special day. You will have a chance again next year October 19, 2024. All the winners for every year are posted on the Winners page. The entire Rotary Club of Tucson thanks you for coming! See you next year!!!

The Rotary Club of Tucson and the Tucson Classics Car Show

Rotary Club of Tucson Members, family, and a Rotary Scholar volunteer at Make Way for Books

Rotary changes lives, builds Fellowship, Eradicates Polio from the world, gives a helping hand and raises funds for local charities, and lives the motto of Service Above Self. In 2007, the Rotary Club of Tucson, and its 501(c)(3) foundation decided to help the community’s less fortunate by starting the Tucson Classics Car Show. This was a way for the Club to increase its commitment to putting Service Above Self. This outreach in Southern Arizona has rewarded those in need and continues to grow every year.

Tucson Classics Car Show has granted over $2.4 million to local charities. Money raised from past shows has helped:
• Children’s literacy
• Vocational training
• Women & teens in need
• Many others throughout the community

Our Story

"It was a great shoot in spite of the temp and it’s going to be a great episode. As I said to you previously, you folks run a very good show. It was concours-level in terms of its execution, but without all the snootiness. Congratulations to all involved on a job very well done! The episode is tentatively scheduled to air on May 11 on Motor Trend (and repeat on Nov 9), but we will have it up on YouTube well before that. I’ll keep you posted on the release date. Again, it was great working with you Lee (I never have had the operational support you provided). You all have a lot to be proud of with that show!"
