A new year of fun Florida car shows is underway for lovers of cars both new and old.

This is by no means a comprehensive list of all of 2018’s Florida car shows, just a few of the ones we think you won’t want to miss.

Must-see 2018 Florida car shows

1. MOPAR Super Swap XIX (January 13th, Melbourne): The Wickham Park Equestrian Center in Melbourne is the new location for the 19th edition of this popular swap meet. Last year’s event saw 120 vendors and 250 cars on display.

2. YATC Cool Wheels Car Show (January 21st, Deerfield Beach): One of the more popular South Florida car shows, this 7th edition promises over 500 show cars, a silent auction, cash prizes, and Broward Sheriff’s Office SWAT presentations. Proceeds help support the Youth Automotive Training Center.

3. Renaissance Charter School at West Palm Beach Car and Motorcycle Show and Fun Fair (January 27th, West Palm Beach): The Renaissance Charter School and East Coast Mustang Club host this automotive event, which is open to all makes and models of bikes and cars. Taking place at the Renaissance Charter School, proceeds will benefit the school and the Connor Moran Children’s Cancer Foundation.

4. Dania Beach Vintage Motorcycle Show (January 27, Dania Beach): While not technically falling under the “car show” category, we thought the 12th edition of this event was worth mentioning because it takes place just a mile-and-a-half from Garage Living of Miami. American, European, Japanese, and English motorcycles 35 years and older will be among the more than 380 vintage motorcycles on display.
