Car Show Display – Do It Yourself (DIY)

As many car show fans know, car show display stands can be very expensive. You can use the metal stand with the display top, but they cost more than $300 each. You could use a show display that has a few photos of your car and costs anywhere from $50-$100. However, if you make any changes to your car, you’ll need to buy a new display. I found a better option and I would like to share it with you.

I had two goals for my display stand. First, I need it to be inexpensive. If I had a ’69 with matching numbers and 500 original miles, I would buy a professionally made stand for hundreds of dollars. However, I put my budget at $100 since I’m in the shows for fun. I found a display on eBay that allowed updates to the display for little cost. The display was listed for $59. If I wanted a custom 8.5×22 print, it was an extra $40. I purchased the blank display stand for $59. My plan was to create two 8.5×11 sheets in Photoshop and print them on my color laser printer. If you don’t have Photoshop and a color printer, you can just use Microsoft Word and take it to Kinko’s to print.

Here are photos of my finished display stand that cost just $59! If I make any changes to the car, all I need to do is take out the old info sheets and insert the new info sheets.
