would you do it

my ole car is almost restored except paint job its faded but still all there inside is good engine is looking good.question is would you guys be ashamed to put a car like that in a car show its not perfect at all but decent.see i thought its for the public to have a chance to look at some old cars.not just to judge the restoration.this will be my first time to go to a show think i might see cars in same condition here in alabama

Sure

At the local shows I see quite a few cars like that one in your gallery..Some of the "big shows" are juried so that may be an issue..

Have to agree with onemore time. At the shows around here you see all kinds. I like going to then because you can get new ideas to try on your on rig if you want. I think you would enjoy it and have fun. I know I did.

I dont see why not, I see ricers all the time in local car shows that the only thing they have is spinnig hubcaps and foglights from walmart.
Hell, for the 4th of july there is a car show Im entering my truck in. Its in primer but the interior is almost done, and the engine looks awesome.

Go for it!
You won't win best paint,but there's nothing wrong with being proud of what you've done so far-and the fact you're doing it yourself.
The engine looks pretty good in the pictures,so show it off.
Have a blast,George

Looks like an unrestored original if you keep the hood closed, go for it.
