November is car show season for us here in Florida. There is something going on everywhere, every weekend. This year we decided to be a part of the twelfth installment of FixxFest – a show dedicated to European car enthusiasts that takes place at Bradenton Motorsports park. The official reasoning behind FixxFest, according to their website, is to “satisfy your addition for European Cars.” We caravanned up to Bradenton from Naples with a small group. We arrived to find a massive turnout!
Beyond the vendors, the show was split up into multiple categories for judging based on model. There was everything from aircooled classics to brand new MINI Coopers and Audis. On the other side of the show field you could find people grilling out – it was basically a giant tailgating party for car enthusiasts! The show has a very relaxed feel, but there is plenty to do and no time to get bored. The drag strip is open all day, there’s a Car Limbo contest along with a Pumpkin Pie Eating contest (no hands allowed!), raffle prizes, Best of Show cars and more!
We were glad we took the time to be a part of such a unique event! If you were unable to make it, we hope you can get an idea of what it was like from our photos – and plan on being there next year!
While we were there we handed out cards with a discount code for 10% off your entire order and we would like to extend that offer to our readers online! Use the code “SHOWSEASON” online or over the phone, and keep an eye out for some Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deals!
