Event Coverage: Shinefest Pride & Perfection Car Show

Our aptly named Shinefest car show series has made the most of these warm and glorious summer months. The August event, the fourth of the five shows slated for 2017, was a case in point. All the cars in attendance were primped and preened to get as many votes as possible. Here are the results from the August 27th event.

The show is free to spectators and open to the public and the cars are judged by the entrants in all class except the Best Detailed award, which is voted on by Griot’s Garage staff. Check out our gallery of event photos here.

Griot’s Garage staff awarded the Best Detailed award to Bob Mehler for his wicked cool 1955 Chevy 210 Del Ray. Look for a full feature on this ride in the future.
