Carolina AMC welcomes the American Motors Owners Association to the Carolinas for the 2014 AMO International Convention!

On behalf of the members of Carolina AMC and all of the Southern chapters of AMO, we want to welcome you to the Carolinas for the 2014 AMO Convention. Our host hotel has gone through a lot of changes since we first started planning for the event. As of today, it is named the Charleston Plaza Hotel (formerly InnPlace, formerly Sheraton) but the impressive facility and staff has remained the same and we are excited to have AMC enthusiasts join us for a fun weekend of AMC cars mixed with the Southern Hospitality of Charleston, one of the most famous cities in America, and considered one of the best places to live and vacation in the South.

The Charleston area has so much to do and we want everyone coming to have as much free time as possible to take in all of the area attractions and historical venues. No matter if you want to stroll downtown Charleston and shop or take in Patriots Point, we encourage you to look at everything the area has to offer and enjoy a great vacation in the South this year!

All of the show events will be held at the host hotel, our central point for everyone to enjoy our cars and explore the area. The hotel will offer free shuttle services to all of the key areas of interest.

The itinerary of AMO and club sponsored events is ever changing so please be sure to download a registration flyer frequently to have the latest information. We will post this itinerary online on this page once key events are finalized.

Carolina AMC would like to invite all vendors to join us for the show. With this being the first AMO national event in the South since 2005, we anticipate a great crowd of AMC enthusiasts and owners who want and need AMC related parts. Our vendor swap meet will be on Friday and Saturday, with plenty of space available.

Have questions or need assistance in any way? Please contact us at carolinaamc@earthlink.net or give any of our club officers a call, you can reach us at the contact phone #'s available on this website.

FAQ's About the 2014 AMO International Convention

 

Do you have to be a member of AMO to participate in the show? - Yes, membership in AMO is required to show your car (display only) or to participate in judging (official AMO judging). A one-day membership is available for $15, but we encourage you to join for the year for $30, it is well worth it!

Will there be vendors at the show? - Yes, all of us are counting on several vendors in the AMC hobby and many local vendors selling parts and collectables. Vendor space is only $25. AMC related merchandise only.

When will the swap meet with vendor happen? - The swap meet is on Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 5pm; all swap meet spaces will be on the parking lot grounds of the host hotel.

Will credit cards be accepted at the show for registration and shirts? - Yes, Carolina AMC will have credit card processing through 'Square'; there will be a small fee for any credit card transaction to help cover processing costs.

Why is there a $20 registration fee and at $25 judging fee? - These fees are to help AMO cover the costs of putting on a National event, buying trophies, and creating a first class show. If you pay the $20 registration fee, this allows you to 'display' your AMC at the show; if you pay an additional $25, this allows your car to be judged by AMO teams according to the official AMO guidelines (www.amonational.com) for Gold, Silver, or Bronze. This judging is points based and you are NOT competing against others cars. Your car will get judged on its own merit.

When is the cut-off for pre-registration for the event? - Pre registration end on July 1st, 2014. After this date registrations will be done at the event until all spaces are filled. If we exceed the facility space for show vehicles, our local team will do the best we can to open up additional space at surrounding businesses; however we encourage everyone to pre-register to ensure participation in the show.
