Thank you to all that joined us for the 5th Annual Fifth Avenue Auto Showcase presented by car2go San Diego (FAAS) on Sunday, October 13, 2013 from 11:00am to 4:00pm! This year's free to view event was our best yet, featuring 150+ high-performance automobiles along Fifth Avenue between E and K Street, ranging from the traditional classics to the lavish contemporary luxury vehicles. 

 

This year's Fifth Avenue Auto Showcase also featured showstopping special displays by the Mopar Club of San Diego, Ferrari Owners Club San Diego Region and La Jolla Concours d'Elegance & Motor Car Classic at the Concours. PLUS, guests were able to test their parking skills by signing up for car2go's interactive Park2Win Challenge on Fifth Avenue between J and K Streets. The participant that maneuvered a car2go (smart car) through the three parallel parking challenges with the best qualifying time got to take home a brand new iPad mini courtesy of car2go! 

 

For the first time, the Fifth Avenue Auto Showcase sold out! All of our spaces for the 2013 event were filled and entries were closed in advance of the event. Think your hot wheels are worthy of winning Best in Class, or even Best of Show in 2014? Save the date for the 6th Annual Fifth Avenue Auto Showcase on Sunday, October 12, 2014 and check back in May for the 2014 entry application. To showcase your car, submit your 2014 entry application and entry fee ($40 by September 26/$50 after September 26). Entry fee includes lunch for you and a guest at a participating Gaslamp Quarter restaurant, and a goodie bag courtesy of Hagerty Insurance, filled with specials and deals from Gaslamp Quarter business.
