What's going on



Cool Wheels Car Show moved to 2025

Dear Cool Wheels fans and friends of YATC,

Due to multiple unexpected roadblocks, the 2024 Cool Wheels Car Show will be cancelled. We are sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this causes.

We are committed to putting on a car show at the highest standards for all our fans and everyone in the community. To ensure the continuing success of Cool Wheels, we have made the difficult decision to not move forward with the rain date of April 7, 2024.

If you had registered for either January or April dates, your prepaid entry will be honored for January 19, 2025. Please mark your calendars and we hope to see you next year for another awesome show!

If you have any questions, please contact or call YATC at 954-428-0909. For more information and frequently asked questions about the 2025 show, visit

Thank you for your support of Cool Wheels, the Youth Automotive Training Center and the at-risk young people in our community we serve.
