The Abraham Lincoln Car Show Spectacular is the largest car show in central Illinois. Displays include the replica Lincoln Funeral carriage, 30-50 Pinto Stampedes, the Fordzilla Monster truck, Justin Allgaier’s #51 Nascar show car, the Sangamon County Sheriff MRAP vehicle, several “celebrity” movie cars – such as Christine and Bumblebee from the movie Transformers and the Back to the Future DeLorean – as well as weather-pending attractions such as a hot-air balloon demonstration, photo flyover taken via Cessna 172 and a Goodyear Blimp flyover. The show is an official Brighton Car Show “Best of the Best” qualifier, awarding more than 300 trophies across 60 categories. Of course, you can’t have the Abraham Lincoln Car Show without Abraham Lincoln, so renowned Lincoln impersonator Fritz Klein will be on hand to present the “Best in Show” award to a deserving car and truck.
