2017 Car Show LogoWe receive lots of emails in the week before the show!  Here are answers to your most frequently asked questions:

Q:  I missed the registration cutoff, can I still get in?
A;  Only through our standby registration process.  For more information about standby registration, visit our website here:http://orangeplazarotary.org/web/car-show/standby-registration-information/

Q: Where do we line up?
A: Line up on East Chapman Avenue at Grand, facing the circle (to the west).

Q: How early may we line up?
A:  The City of Orange is VERY concerned about the peace and quiet of our neighbors.  We will park the first 40 cars in line beginning at 5 a.m.   The remaining cars will not enter until 6 a.m.  Please respect the City’s wishes and do not arrive earlier than 3:30 a.m.  Please do not run your engine longer than is necessary for you to enter the show after 5 a.m.

Q: What is the latest I can line up? 
A: General parking begins at 6 a.m.  If you are not in line before we get to the end of the pre-registered parking line, you may lose your spot when we begin standby parking.  The car entry gate will close by 8 a.m. and not a minute later.

Q: Are restrooms or port-a-potties available in the morning? 
A: We open our port-a-potties on North Orange Street by 6 a.m.  Facilities are generally not available before 6 a.m.

Q: Can I bring a different car? 
A: Yes (with your ticket), but we do not make any class or car registration changes at the show. This means that a replacement car will not be judged.

Q:  Can I sell my entry ticket to someone else?
A:  Yes, but only one car will be admitted per entry ticket.  All tickets will be scanned at the gate. And remember a replacement car will not be judged.

Q:  Where do I collect my entry goodies and T-shirt?
A:  After parking your car in the Plaza area, bring your ticket to the command center at the East Chapman side of circle.  Our registration team will give you an entry packet and your T-shirt(s).

Q:  What if I can’t bring any car?  Can I still collect my entry goodies?
A: Yes (with your ticket).  Please present it at the command center registration table.

Q:  What if I can’t come at all?  Can I still collect my entry goodies after the day of the show?
A:  Unfortunately, no.

Q:  What if I need to leave early?
A:  Please do not enter the show if you cannot leave your car in place until 3 p.m.  If you must leave in an emergency, you must leave your car and return for it after 3 p.m.
