We just got back from the Charlotte AutoFair hosted by and we know a bunch of you were at the big Goodguys Show in Del Mar, so it's official: Car Show Season is here.  We saw some great vehicles in Charlotte, and we'll have a full update for you next week on the Elvis impersonators, pig races, lawnmower races and general mayhem, but for now, enjoy the wide range of coverage from both of those shows, and more, from our talented, dedicated and as always, amazing, roving reporters. We can't thank you all enough for braving long lines, the hot sun, and fair food to share your photos with the readers. Have car shows to share? Send us your description and photos to [email protected]!
