ABOUT ONSI

The Old North State Invitational is a traditional hot rod and custom car show. It was started in 2016 in Winston-Salem, NC and has seen steady growth in both interest and attendance.

 

Each year we invite over 100 hot rods and customs from all over the region and have welcomed cars from as far as Oklahoma and New Hampshire.

 

Vehicles are carefully selected and must be styled like the custom cars of the 1940s to the very early 1960s. ONSI is as much about history as it is about automobiles.

FAQ

IS THIS AN INVITATION ONLY SHOW?  Yes.

WHAT IS YOUR CRITERIA?  Officially, we allow American made cars manufactured up to the very early 1960s (ideally 1954 and earlier).We prefer that they be "hot rodded" or customized (not stock) in a style reminiscent of Pre- and Post- WWII America. A few things that we try to steer away from are: radial tires, alternators, disc brakes, electric fans, air conditioning, electronic fuel injection, etc. We do not accept rat rods, street rods, art/concept cars or muscle cars.

HOW DO I GET AN INVITATION?  Handwritten invitations are sent via the U.S. Postal Service. We are not aware of every eligible car in existence. If you have or are aware of a car that you think might fit the show, let us know! Use the contact form or email us at: oldnorthstateinvitational@gmail.com. Pictures and details are very helpful.

IS THERE A REGISTRATION FEE?  Yes.  It is $50.

DO YOU GIVE OUT AWARDS?  The invitation is your award.
