    If you’ve ever experienced one of Carl Casper’s amazing car shows, you probably already have your tickets for this weekend’s 50th Anniversary Car Show.  But if this is all new to you, you certainly owe it to yourself to get out to Louisville’s Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, for a three-day extravaganza of vehicle perfection.

    casper 13 b_0.jpgThe Carl Casper Custom Auto Show and Louisville New Car Auto Show will bring the area’s largest auto show to town February 22-24, with three days of stars and action packed fun.  Show hours are Friday- 6 p.m.-11 p.m., Saturday - 10 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sunday - 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for children 6-12 and free for children 5 and under. Exhibits will be in all locations.

    Carl Casper is a name that is synonymous with car shows, and his longest-running event, the Carl Casper Custom Car Carl Show will showcase some of the impresario’s personal collection of amazing automobiles.  This weekend, Casper will be bringing out many of the show cars he has built over the years; including the 1965 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, complete with its hand-formed body, twin-blown ’57 Pontiac motor and custom-fade paint scheme. Also on the floor will be other show car icons, such as the Pinball Wizard and the Paddy Wagon.

    batmobile.jpgAdd all the movie cars that Casper has built, such as the Bat Mobile, the A-Team vehicles, K.I.T.T. and the General Lee, and it promises to be an impressive showing. Since Casper is one of the few people to keep every car he ever built, he has added to the display no less than three Top Fuel cars he built during the 1970s. These cars were strong runners with track records to their credits and bragging rights such as knocking out Don Garlits in three out of four of their meetings.

    Of course, the tribute to Casper’s cars is only a portion of the show. The real meat of the show will consist of hundreds of fine automobiles of every description from all over the U.S. The show fills the huge Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, and car enthusiasts can spend a full day at the show attempting to take it all in. Many clubs use the show as a winter outing and a chance to have an indoor rod run and three days of hanging out and talking cars.
