St. Ignace Cup

Pfaff Designs

St. Ignace Cup presented by AMSOIL

September 3rd - 6th

Thank you for your interest in the Pfaff Designs St. Ignace Cup presented by AMSOIL. This award was created to highlight the finest vehicles from the Great Lakes region and across the country. The winner as selected by their peers and the St. Ignace judging panel will receive $5,000 and the specially designed and crafted Pfaff Designs “St. Ignace Cup”. Runners up will become the “St. Ignace Six” and each will receive $500.

St. Ignace Car Show Weekend is recognized as one of Michigan's best all-make, all-model car shows. This is the second year hot rod designer and builder Murray Pfaff of Pfaff Designs will be sharing his talent, knowledge, expertise in design, and industry contacts with the St. Ignace Car Show event team.

“I want to help ensure that the St. Ignace Cup becomes a treasured award for automotive enthusiasts across the country for years to come”, stated Pfaff. “St. Ignace is the Big show with Small town charm. Showcasing beautiful vehicles downtown right on the shore of Lake Huron is a winning formula for exhibitors and spectators alike”.

St. Ignace Car Show Weekend is an all years, all makes, all models car event. The cars chosen for the St. Ignace Six will represent the types of vehicles that attend the show (or complexion) and will hopefully represent the best of the best. Yes – the final selection will most likely be like comparing apples to pomegranates, but our goal is to let creativity, craftsmanship, engineering, ingenuity, and passion be the deciding factors.

Thank you for your interest in the Pfaff Designs’ St. Ignace Cup present by AMSOIL!
