Okay, here it is, the dreaded list. It will change as we get more feedback, but it's pretty solid.
The Gatekeeper has full control over who and what is allowed in the gate regardless of the criteria here, so there's no point in calling an emergency parking lot board meeting. Don't argue with whoever is working the gate, it holds up the line and you won't win. Think of the children.
All classics are allowed and more on that is covered below.
ALL CARS MUST BE CLEAN, YES, EVEN YOUR FERRARI!
Models designated with a "*" should be discussed with us preferably before or if you don't mind a possible rejection, we can have a look-see at the gate. Only premium examples will be allowed to enter. We're just trying to put on the best event possible.
If we missed something on this list let us know. It will be in a constant state of refinement, so if you're unsure, drop us a note.
For the record, as we say all over the place on this site, arguing with us at the event is never a good idea. Even our moms know that. We beat this point to death in our FAQ.

Select Vintage, Oddities, Classics, Icons, etc:
What do we mean by select vintage? Think of it this way - a 77 Trans Am is awesome if it’s a replica of the Smokey and the Bandit car, but if it’s barely moving and the paint is faded, then that guy is probably selling meth. Your grandma's Buick Century Wagon probably isn’t going to fit in, but we’d love to have a ‘59 Electra 225 roll up. We hope you understand the spirit of what we're talking about.
We also include the usual British classics such as MGs, Triumph, etc. We think you get the general ideal. If you have doubts, just drop us a note.
All vintage cars must appear fully restored and be well kept. No signage is allowed next to cars nor are display props as seen at some Hot Rod shows. The Gatekeeper always has the final say!
We are big motorcycle fans at E@RTC, but we only allow exceptionally rare motorcycles in since we are a car show. And by rare we mean RARE - Ducati Desmosedici, Honda RC30 and RC213-V, Muzzy Raptor, MV Agusta F4 Senna, select vintage bikes, etc. We mean the rarest of the rare, the best of the best, and no, not your usual chopper no matter how much chrome is on it. Again, we really do like bikes, we just want to keep this an Exotics show.
Rare and one-off example vehicles may be let in regardless of make (movie cars, prototypes, certain race cars, etc) - please email us in advance and insert a link to some photos!
To get ahead of two common questions we get surprisingly often - no, your rare paint color does not make your car an exotic nor does bolting on a Bushwacker fender flare kit (Or Liberty Walk, Rocket Bunny, or whatever you want to call it to make yourself feel better) to your normally non-exotic. No amount of money you have spent on your Scion FRS, Challenger SRT, Chevy SS (which is not a true Holden Commodore for the 100th time), or Mustang Ecoboost will make it an exotic even if they are all really fun cars all of us at Exotics really like.
If we missed something let us know, but we think you get the idea. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
