Welcome to SHIFT. We’re excited about this interactive driving event enjoyed over a series of curated roads throughout Southern Indiana.

Over the years, we have continued to refine and more clearly articulate our event focus and judging process and philosophy.  To that end, the Artomobilia, at its core, is a celebration of automotive art and design spanning more than 100 years and 50 marques.  The Artomobilia team appreciates each and every automotive enthusiast that chooses to invest their time in our event, and share their car with our judging team and the many thousands of guests that the event hosts each year.  Because of our event focus, we welcome, and present, one of the largest variety of collector and enthusiast automotive marques (and periods) of any event in the United States.

The Judging Committee has established an evaluation philosophy that provides guardrails when judging vehicles within a class, or across multiple classes.  That said, the quality and quantity of the truly fantastic collector and enthusiast entries that we receive each year makes selecting a single winner from each class a challenging prospect.  We acknowledge that we cannot please everyone, however, our hope is that you will appreciate, enjoy, and celebrate the selected winners with us.
