Cars and motorcycles of all makes and models will compete at Harlem High School on Saturday during the Big Dog Car Show.
This is the second car show the school has held in the past year as a fund-raiser for Harlem's Transportation Vocational Industrial Clubs of America.
"It's a club that allows kids a chance to better themselves with hands-on careers," said Harlem's automotive teacher, Nicholas Hayes. "It opens their eyes to what's out there and helps them get their foot in the door with jobs or technical colleges."
Hayes expects the number of competitors to triple from the school's first car show last October. In all, he's expecting about 200 cars and 50 motorcycles.
Vehicles will be judged on engine, interior, paint, customization, tires and wheels, and overall appearance. There also will be Ladies Choice and Peoples Choice categories.
Trophies will be awarded to the top 25 cars and the top five motorcycles.
"At our first show we had everything from a 1923 T-Bucket to 2002 Supras," said Hayes.
"A lot of it is about pride. I was raised in it and I like the appeal of turning people's heads. Some people spend half a million on a house so people will ride by and look at it. Some people go to the gym three times a week so people will look at them. Some guys just go for the car."
Other activities at the car show include a bass (stereo) competition, lawn mower races, food and games.
The hours for the car show are 4 to 10 p.m.
