Car, Truck Show Hits Resort With Full Event Slate

OCEAN CITY — The 12th anniversary edition of the OC Car and Truck Show will take place in Ocean City next weekend, June 8-9, at the Ocean City Convention Center.

"The biggest show in 12 years," said OC Car and Truck Show co-owner Brian Stoehr. "We have more vehicles coming down to the event from all over the country than ever before.”

According to Stoehr, the reason is simple, the OC Car Show, which will be held rain or shine, has grown into one of the biggest events of its kind on the east coast and as others have gone away, the event in Ocean City is growing. The event is also timed perfectly with the hit movie series "Fast and Furious" every few years.  This is one of those "Fast and Furious" years for the OC Car Shows.  The event literally brings the movie to life, according to Stoehr.

This year on stage the OC Car Shows have announced platinum selling artist Fat Joe, one of the largest names in hip hop who will be at the show live on Saturday, June 8 at 7 p.m.

One of the most overlooked areas of the event is the vendor alley at the OC Car Show. All of the top automotive aftermarket and car audio companies will be showing off the latest products hitting the market and selling gear at drastically discounted prices. If you are in need of a flip down TV or the hottest new speakers for your car, this is the only place to find deals at over 70% off, according to Stoehr.

The show producers are also adding a huge door prize to their events. One lucky winner will walk away with free gas for the entire summer.  All you have to do to win is come to the show and you are registered.
