While it may not be officially summer, the temperatures sure are screaming that the low-key days of summer are closely approaching. With how beautiful the weather has been, we can’t imagine a better way to spend a warm day than out at a car show. At USA Lift Sales, we spend quite a bit of time at car shows ourselves, so we feel it only makes sense to provide our loyal customers with access to some of the best car shows in the nation that are coming up!

If you have yet to put your car in a show, here are a few quick tips to make your first show a great one.
Attention to Detail
One of the best things that you can do is spend extra attention to detail when it comes to your car. With how many vehicles are usually at a car show, the details will make a difference. Cleaning is going to be a massive aspect of this, so make sure that you pack a travel cleaning kit to bring with you.
Leave it Empty
Having random pieces of equipment or supplies in your car is fine — when the car is sitting idle at your house. When you’re bringing a car to a show, the last thing that you want is random items rolling around in the back of your vehicle. Take out any pieces that you can and leave your car as empty as can be.
Leave the Windows Up
Even though the interior of your car may look immaculate, under no circumstances do you want to leave the windows of your car rolled down. Your windows are one of the parts of your car that will be judged, and they must be spotless. Invest in a high-quality glass cleaner so that you feel good about your windows when you get to the event.
Show Up Early
One of the best things that you can do is show up to a show early. By showing up early, you give yourself enough time to park your car in a quality spot, and also have enough time to do any final detailing that you may need. You won’t regret showing up early — ever!
