Car care and cleaning experts Meguiar’s has launched a sweepstakes on its Facebook page, giving away plenty of free car care products randomly throughout this month.
Meguiar’s is sending nine of the world’s top show cars from around the world to this year’s SEMA Show, holding its first ever Car Crazy International Vehicle Showcase. These nine cars along with their owners will be brought in from all over the globe and will be on display front and center right outside the Convention Hall, next to Meguiar’s Car Crazy TV Stage. All week long, both the vehicles and their owners will be a major attraction of this year’s SEMA Show.
Each vehicle was meticulously selected to ensure that they represent their respective country with pride. Just some of the vehicles that are heading to Meguiar’s Car Crazy International Vehicle Showcase include a 1953 Ford Truck F100 from Costa Rica (pictured), a 1981 VW Golf Mk1 from the United Kingdom, a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom from Mexico, a 2000 Toyota Celica from China, and a 1978 XC GS Ford Falcon Hardtop (pictured) from all the way in Australia.
Prior to making the trek to Las Vegas though, the vehicles will make a pit stop during the month of October at the Marconi Automotive Museum in Southern California for private showings to visitors throughout the month.

Car Crazy TV host and the face behind of the Meguiar’s detailing products company Barry Meguiar is reportedly in serious condition after being admitted to hospital in Monterey, CA. According to a report by AutoWeek, Meguiar is in the intensive care unit of the Monterey Community Hospital.
Few folks are better known and few faces more recognizable in the auto industry than Meguiar’s. Aged 67, Meguiar took his family run business of care care products and transformed it into a multi-million dollar company, eventually selling it to 3M in 2008. Meguiar continued to work with the new owners, promoting his family’s line of detailing products while spreading the gospel of automotive fanaticism through his Car Crazy TV show.
Meguiar was in Monterey over the weekend taking part in the annual Pebble Beach festivities.
