Our 5th annual Alden Sherman Classic is scheduled for
Sunday, September 25th 10am - 3pm at the Weston High School Campus.
We hope to make this the best Alden Sherman Classic to date. Therefore, we ask you for your help. Let's face it, car shows are about great cars and assuming all of you are not only enthusiasts in your own right, but are a part of a much larger community that encourages friendship and camaraderie. Therefore, we ask for your support in making this a great show by encouraging other enthusiasts to sign up.
Last year's event was such a great success, that we met our goal and were able to purchase a new bus for the senior center. The bus will be on display at the upcoming ASC.
We have a great team of judges who have already signed on, great food trucks, an amazing silent auction, and over 15 beautiful trophies! We will keep you updated as details of the show become available.
Our registration is open…
