I would also suggest for the bands you use spopt metering. As for shoting cars if outside I would suggest a Circular Polarizing filter to help with glare. Just my $.02
i second that

With a car show ... use the widest lens possible ... as room may be limiting ... and backing up may not be possible. A CP is a must for outdoors ... not just for glare ... but it reduces annoying reflections in some cases giving the paintwork a softer feel to it.

But definitely take the 50mm with you as well ... it does help with nice narrow DOF shots to highlight special features if you see something you like.

Take a hat for outdoor events as well

I want to really get out to a shoow soon ... I have been itching to shoot cars/bikes again.

Really must agree with the circular polariser - it makes a huge difference
