Welcome at the Top Notch Car Show 2018

Top Notch Car Show 2018, a week later

Again this year, for our 2nd Edition, we had a great success. Thank you to all of you, participants, vendors, volunteers, community services to attend to this year's event.

Even with mother nature, who was not really on our side this year, everybody was great and had a good time!

All of you guys ROCK ! Everybody was amazing !

We've heard all your comments regarding the 2017 Edition of the Top Notch Car Show; Especially about the issue of the dust. So this year we installed artificial grass to stop the dust the most we could: Everyone talked about it and loved it! We tried it, it worked beautifully! That's a win, you can expect artificial grass for next year's event!

We'd like to give a thousand thanks to Trooper Williams (Nevada Highway Patrol), Lt. Thomas Klenczar (Nye County Sheriff Department), and the BLM Firefighters who spent the event with us once again this year!
Safety first! Thanks guys!

We are already working on next year's event. With more ideas up our sleeves to work with and to make happen. A BIG THANK YOU for a lovely and successful event you've given us! Until then, take care and see you next year!

LIVE Auction, A well appreciated idea

Ski the Auctioneer at the Top Notch Car Show 2018

"Ski" the Auctioneer at the Top Notch Car Show 2018

As you know, Ski the Auctioneer conducted a live auction on October 7th, 2018 in the morning. Afterward, people told us only good about the idea; the auction was fun and appreciated. So we might keep it up in next year show's activities lineup, we would also be better prepared and advertise more about it.

Shane Switzer won 3 items at the auction

Shane Switzer won 2 training certificates and the coveted Diamond Lifetime Membership at Front Sight Training Institute.

Jack Rutherford won 1 item at the auction

Jack Rutherford won 1 training certificate at Front Sight Training Institute.

The auction allowed us to collect $1250.00 that went directly to benefit Rosemary Clarke Middle School and Nye Communities Coalition.

Great job everyone and thank you all for your participation!

LIVE Music with Michael Monroe Goodman and the Honky Tonk Ninjas

We received A HUGE load of good comments about the live band, unanimously the band was A-W-E-S-O-M-E.
Thanks Michael Monroe Goodman and the Honky Tonk Ninjas, your performance was great and appreciated!

By the way, they should be back next year, with in bonus, Aaron Pax Taylor, who was initially supposed to sing for all of us, but whose wife gave birth to their child recently.


Robert Shield Master Glass blower

An interesting feature this year : Master Robert Shield and his Studio Royal Glass international academy.
