    Hey Joey -
    Just to clarify, the $15 cost you show in your post is for spectator entry.
    Vehicle pre-entry registration had to be received by September 7th. Day-of-show vehicle registration is now $45 and includes entry for the driver and one passenger.
    If anyone is planning for the 2019 show, they also have "INSIDE VIP" vehicle parking for $65, but no cruising permitted if your car is parked indoors.
    It's a great show if you're going to be in the SoCal area on Saturday, Sept. 27.

    ...and you can get free prostate screening at the show

    Good catch!! I updated the "Cost" to indicate the cost for Spectators. I'll probably be there! We're thinking of going to Lancaster this Saturday too.

    Maybe the fiance and I will stop by. I doubt the Dart would go as I've got someone taking a look to diagnose it on that Friday.

    I feel like I hear a clunking or gear noise when the car is idling in neutral. Otherwise it drives well.

    Thats a unique show. You can pitch a lawn chair and just sit and watch hundreds of cars idle by you on a one way street through a fair ground. Lots of trees and a huge parking lot. I went about 10 years ago and there was a row of red 64-66 Mustangs 30 cars long. I think it was a car club as they parked them by years. Do the $45 for a car and a passenger...and pack a cooler of beer in the trunk (oops did I say that?) You'll save money in the long run.
