Custom and American Show

The Custom and American Show will be returning on Father’s Day Sunday 16th June 2024 with hundreds of cool American motors, colourful custom cars and bikes, live music and hip entertainment throughout the day.

Held in association with the Solent Renegades club, and celebrating the truly individual creations of the motoring world, the Custom and American Show will be a summer day out that is too good to be missed.

Amazing vehicles

You can expect a stunning display of American motors at the heart of the show. From classic Camaros to modern Mustangs, can you spot your dream car? Look out for jaw-dropping custom cars, bikes and trikes, and hot rods, as they take their places in the diverse line-up.


Classic American magazine will be returning to the show to hold one of the heats for its Car of the Year competition, with unmodified American cars of any era invited to compete. Which stunning car will be selected to go through to the next round of the competition?


Listen out for great music at the show! Already confirmed, and sure to get your feet tapping, are vintage close harmony trio The Bluebirds, Craig Jefferson’s Elvis tribute act and country/folk infused band Route 66.
