The Classic Motorsports Virtual Monterey Kickoff Cruise-In Presented by Hagerty and eBay Motors Ends Tonight

Hopefully the sun is shining wherever you are and you're ready to take and post a great photo of your car! We've been accepting entries for a few weeks now, and today, August 11, is the last day to show off your classic for the chance to win a prize worth up to $1000.

The deadline is 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time tonight. Judging will take place tomorrow, and results will be posted on Thursday.

Remember, only entries posted in the official thread (which can be found by clicking here) with the required prop will be considered.

We know this conversion to a digital event can be new and confusing, so here's a refresher on how it works:

How to Participate:

  1. If you haven’t already, make an account on so you can post your car picture. If you already have an account, log in here.
  2. Get your car ready, just like you would for a real car show. Take it out of storage, give it a good detail, and make sure it's looking its best.
  3. Find an item to use as a prop. That item must be one that symbolizes Monterey Car Week. This can be a souvenir from a previous car week, an item that represents California, or even a piece of Classic Motorsports merchandise.
  4. Take a picture of your car that includes the prop from step 3 and shows off its best angles for the judges.
  5. Go to the Classic Motorsports Virtual Monterey Kickoff Cruise-in thread and post your photo! Photo entries will be accepted up until 7:00pm Pacific time.
  6. Category winners will be contacted after judging is complete.
