Las Vegas has The Strip with its faux-front landmarks, its bright lights, its glitzy casinos and its big-name entertainment shows. But for the collector car crowd, the show takes place on Saturday mornings at the southeast corner of Eastern Avenue and Richmar Avenue in Henderson, where The Car Show on Eastern has become a weekly fixture.
There’s no casino. The only bright light is the sun rising overhead as the cars cruise in around 7 a.m. to the parking lot at the Sansone Park Place shopping center. Depending on just how hot that sun shines, the show lasts as late as 10 a.m.
And it’s quite a show. Officially organized for the last few years by Celebrity Cars Las Vegas, a collector car dealership, and with weekly sponsorships benefiting the Las Vegas Rotary Club, the show draws an impressively wide variety of vehicles and a diverse group of car owners and car-curious spectators.
