The Daytona Turkey Run show held from Thanksgiving this year will mark the 14th anniversary of an event at which there will be thousands of classic cars for sale and many exhibits for visitors to enjoy.
The Daytona International Speedway is the venue for this event and people will be coming from all over the world, including 100 members of a classic car club based in far off Iceland.
A total of 6,000 classic cars are expected to turn out for the show over its three day run, with around half of these available to buy. In addition there are 4,000 spaces allotted to businesses which want to sell their wares, provide refreshments or demonstrate products.
Spokesperson, James Brady, explained that the international audience for the show made it an exciting and vibrant place.
He said that some classic vehicles for sale had been bought by foreign parties and then shipped overseas to places like Japan, Germany and the UK.
The likelihood of good weather, the wealth of vehicles to peruse and the sheer number of enthusiasts who share passions and interests all add up to make the Turkey Run one of the essential shows on the automotive calendar.
