Post-Apocalyptic Car Show

The 3rd Aftermath Post-Apocalyptic & Rat Rod Car Show will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. CT at the Aftermath event grounds. Registration is $10 for each vehicle entered or free for spectators. Your Aftermath weekend ticket will automatically include car show registration!


All form of motorized vehicles are encouraged to register for the shows, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, lawnmowers, tractors, or whatever else you can find! Land vehicles only, please.

Trophies will be given to the best in several categories including Best Original Concept, Best of Show, and more!

The rules are simple:

  • No Turtlewax! This isn’t the type of show where you polish your paint and chrome. We’re looking for vehicles that look like they either survived the apocalypse or were assembled from scrap after the bombs fell.
  • The use of plastic must be minimal and painted or distressed to look weathered.
  • All mounted guns must not be operational.
  • We reserve the right to turn anyone away for not staying in theme. We highly encourage all car show entrants to first submit pictures of their vehicle(s) through the Contact form.

Registration will run from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. while judging will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. for each event. The awards ceremony will be at 2:30 p.m.
