Cars

Grant County, Indiana’s reputation as the coolest destination in the Midwest was established in 1955 when local native James Dean became an instant film sensation. Dean’s cool, self-assured style is the hallmark of our community and today Dean’s legendary love of cars and motorcycles lives on in Grant County, Indiana.

From the first hint of the warmth of spring through the crisp fall air and the changing color of the leaves, our community celebrates Cool with some of the best cars around.  Literally thousands of classic automobiles are on display, so no matter what era, make or model you prefer, you will discover the cars and the owners who share your passion. Check out decked out hot rods, choppers, muscle cars and special interest cars at one of the many car shows throughout the year. The glistening shine of chrome, unmistakable scent of polished leather and roar of a souped up engine attracts gearheads from all around. Greasers and gals love the old school vibe in the area’s classic small towns.  Check out our Calendar of Events to find all of the great car shows Grant County has to offer.
