Carl Casper Auto Show Ads and Articles

All ads are from The Courier-Journal

The Carl Casper Auto Show was held every February in Louisville, KY, for 55 years, from 1963 through 2017. When I was a kid, particularly from around 1976, when I first learned of the Auto Show, until around 1982, I wished to go, but never made it to a show. Though I only lived 45 minutes from Louisville, as an early teen, it might as well have been a million miles away. By the time I could drive myself, I'd pretty much lost interest in going. But I still looked forward every year to seeing the ads for the show to see what vehicles and celebrities would be there.

The official website, CarlCasper.com, is selling a coffee-table book about the auto shows.
