The 16th annual PPG Syracuse Nationals, presented by Fastrac Markets and Your Local Ford Store, will kick off this summer at the New York State Fairgrounds, Friday, July 17, through Sunday, July 19. The three-day automotive extravaganza has become a tradition for thousands of classic car and truck owners and their families from all over the country and Canada. The event is open to hot rods, muscle cars, classics and customs manufactured in 1980 and before. In 2014, the PPG Syracuse Nationals drew more than 88,000 people and 8,022 classic cars, from 30 states and three Canadian provinces, to the Fairgrounds. The event raised more than $98,000 for charity. Since 2000, the show has generated over $825,600 for charity. The Syracuse Nationals, which started as an idea in the summer of 1999, has grown each year since its record-setting debut in July 2000, when more than 4,300 vehicles filled the facility with bright-colored hot rods and sounds of roaring engines. The Nationals is now one of the largest automobile shows in the country featuring street rods, rat rods, custom, classic, muscle and antique cars.

“It has been an honor to watch this show grow into the largest car show in the Northeast,” said Bob O’Connor, Syracuse Nationals founder and director. “It is only through the support of participants and vendors who continue to attend the show and spread the love of vintage vehicles that we are able to put on a great event, give back to local charities and give people a good time. We are grateful for the passion that is still present today.”
