Father’s Day must be primetime for classic car shows, because this is the second one we’ve heard of. We already told you about one in Ruidoso, and this one takes place right here in Albuquerque.

This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (June 19, 20, and 21, 2009), at various times, the Sagebrush Auto Show has a bunch of events for participants and spectators. If you’re interested in participating, note that you can register ($15 per vehicle) on the day of the event. Highlights for spectators include:

  • Classic cars and motorcycles
  • Free food
  • Music
  • Antique tractors

Participants get free admission to the J & R Vintage Auto Museum in Rio Rancho and can take part in a Rod Run from the museum to the auto show site on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, judging occurs and trophies are awarded.

Sponsored by (and held at) Sagebrush Community Church, 6440 Coors Blvd NW, Albuquerque.
