A Nod To The Past: Timeless Displays From Classic Car Clubs

The 2024 Washington, D.C. Auto Show will welcome back three iconic car clubs – the Corvette Club of America (CCA), The Cadillac & LaSalle Club (Potomac Region), and the National Capital Region Mustang Club (NCRMC). Deeply rooted in automotive history, these clubs are expected to make a grand statement with their classic car displays during the 10-day consumer show from January 19 through 28. 

For the past three consecutive years, CCA has been a powerful presence at the Show. And 2024 is no different as they prepare to host their largest exhibit ever, spanning an impressive 6,400 square feet of space. Their ambitious goal this year? To showcase cars from all eight generations of Corvettes – a testament to the rich heritage of this iconic American sports car.

Established in July of 1956, CCA boasts over 67 years of continuous operation with a membership primarily centered in the DC Metro area, but extending across America. CCA members are not merely enthusiasts; they are deeply involved in every facet of the Corvette lifestyle and enjoyment. From charitable events to car shows, and even national-level competitions. CCA is a community that lives and breathes the Corvette experience.

The excitement doesn’t stop there. The Cadillac & LaSalle Club (Potomac Region) is also gearing up for its 9th consecutive year at the DC Auto Show. Their exhibit will be a nostalgic journey back to the 1953 General Motors Motorama, a traveling exhibit that showcased not only new models but also groundbreaking “concept” cars. The Motorama also marked the debut of the Corvette and Cadillac Eldorado – two cars that would go on to become icons in the automotive world. 

This year, the Potomac Region of The Cadillac & LaSalle Club looks to recreate a mini version of the 1953 Motorama. Visitors can expect to spot meticulously restored examples of the 1953 Corvette, Cadillac Eldorado, and Buick Skylark. The search is still on for an elusive 53 Oldsmobile Fiesta – which could be the display’s crowning jewel. 

For those who crave the power of a Mustang, the National Capital Region Mustang Club (NCRMC) will be pulling out all of the stops for the 2024 show. As the sole Mustang club in the D.C. metropolitan area chartered by the prestigious Mustang Club of America, NCRMC boasts a rich history since its establishment in 1979. Dedicated to the joy and celebration of all Mustang generations, this club has been a driving force in providing its members with decades of unforgettable experiences, from car shows and parades to social gatherings, cruises, and invaluable technical knowledge. 

At the 2024 exhibit, prepare to be captivated by a stunning showcase featuring select Mustangs spanning seven generations, alongside iconic models like the Shelby, Boss 302, Mach 1, and other specialty cars. This promises to be an automotive extravaganza that no Mustang enthusiast should miss!

As car enthusiasts, casual visitors, and families alike gear up for the 2024 Washington, D.C. Auto Show, all eyes will undoubtedly be on the exciting displays hosted by the Corvette Club of America, The Cadillac & LaSalle Club (Potomac Region), and the National Capital Region Mustang Club. It’s not just a showcase of classic cars; it’s a journey through time. Tickets for the show are on sale now.
