The cars will be back in town for Tuner Evolution's competition event at Sovereign Bank Stadium.
The Tuner Evolution Car Show will be held from 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25, at the stadium at 5 Brooks Robinson Way in York City.
Presenting the show are friends and business partners Dan Champagne, 31, and Jay Martinez, 28, both of Red Lion. This is their sixth time doing the show.
The Tuner Evolution car show attracts custom cars from around the East Coast, they said.
While the show features custom-built sports cars, the event includes some muscle cars, sport utility vehicles, trucks and motorcycles.
More than 400 vehicles will displayed at the show.
"The show is an automotive lifestyle event," Martinez said. "You'll see all the new trends, parts being used to customize, modify cars."
Show vehicles will be displayed at the stadium's George Street entrance, in the plaza parking lot, the back parking lot along Queen Street and on Arch Street, as a portion of it will be closed near the stadium.
Cars also will be displayed along the warning track inside the stadium, Champagne said.
Prize money and trophies will be given out in a variety of "best," "hottest" and "outstanding" categories for the vehicles.
Other features: The car show also will feature a concert by local bands, tattooing, a bicycle motocross competition, a children's playground and more than 45 vendors, Champagne and Martinez said.
More than 6,000 spectators are expected to attend the car show, which mainly attracts people between ages 14 and 35. However, the event is for people of all ages, Champagne said.
"We just want people to enjoy themselves," Champagne said. "There's really something for everyone. Even if you're not a car guy or car girl, there's other things going on to watch, things to buy, just come and look at the cars."
Tickets are $15 for adults and free for children ages 8 and under. Tickets will be sold only at the gate on car show day, they said.
Event history: The Tuner Evolution Car Show debuted at the York Fairgrounds in 2006 and remained there until 2009. The organizers took a break in 2010, but brought the event back last year.
Martinez and Champagne said they have been obsessed with cars since their high school days and had their own car shop and car club. They also built their own cars and attended car shows.
They said they decided to take their interests to the next level by coordinating their own car show and are pleased with the results.
"Most car shows are done by businessmen and not car guys and (the shows) weren't as great as it should be," Champagne said. "But we're car guys doing a car show and that makes a difference. Our show, it's grown."
