This is an easy one, find something local first. Supposing you’re looking for something laid back to just park and show your car, pick a cruise-in. In the event you’re more serious and looking to win trophies you’ll want to head to a car show.
Gather your trophies, awards, show boards to set up with your car, maybe you even have one of those small dolls to lean against the bumper? If you don’t that’s okay people will still appreciate a classic

Bring any information you have on the car: the history, original papers, first oil change, its story, etc.
On the occasions you’ll be cruising around the scenic routes, always remember to bring tools, a battery jumper, and some extra gas, just in case you run into any trouble or even to help a fellow cruiser if they get stuck in a bind.
Once you get to the show you’ll want to shine it up after the drive, so bring some wax, polish and microfiber cloths to keep it clean and show-ready.
Got photos of your rebuild? Bring them with you to show off the hard work and dedication you’ve put into it. Remember to bring a camera or use your phone’s camera, as you’ll come across lots of cool cars and scenery whether at a show or cruising along the scenic route!
Lots of car shows have food trucks, vendors, raffles, and much more. It’s always a good idea to have some extra cash on you to take advantage of these services and support local businesses. When you’re cruising in, bring some snacks and drinks for your drive, or plan a stop at a restaurant along the way.
Once you’re at a show you’ll want to sit back and relax a bit, so don’t forget a fold-out chair, umbrella, and protection from the sun.
