One of the area’s best loved shows held at the Gamble Plantation Historic State Park in Ellenton, Florida.  Car and Truck enthusiasts from across West Central and Southwest Florida will be on hand to display their rides.  Hundreds of classic cars and trucks will be on display from the early 1900’s to today.  There will be something for every interest including T-Buckets, Muscle Cars, Street Rods, Classics, Modified Imports, Off Road and Military Vehicles, Exotics and maybe even a vintage Fire Truck or two!

Event Benefits Gamble Plantation Preservation Alliance, the nonprofit supporting the Park. All funds are used to maintain & improve the Park experience.
