Going through my coverage of the Detroit AutoRama, and looking at the attention to detail in all of the builds, it’s hard to not want to roll my own car directly into the nearest body of water and never look back.
So many of the cars are closer to works of art than they are vehicles and If I ever get to the point where I can build a car half (maybe even a quarter) as nice as those I saw in the Cobo Center on Saturday I’ll die a very happy man.
Eight simple to follow steps to building a great looking Hot Rod
The results of the eight aforementioned steps is this ’32
Sadly it seems I only took one photo of this car…
Can’t imagine that there are too many New Yorkers rolling around that look anything like this one
Beauty Road Runner
The ‘Juice Duece’ Nova. Nova’s look great pro touring styled
The Street Shaker Charger
Clean business oriented interior
This Cummins turbo diesel motor found it’s way into a full size Chevy
Twin motor, high school built, Fiat
Speaking of twins I was a huge, huge, fan of this twin turbo nomad wagon from Tucci Hot Rods
Love the exahust exit through the bumper and modified license plate
Great looking champagne ’37 Ford
In my opinion this car had one of the most detailed interiors of the show
Just look at that centre console and the stitching in the seats… incredible
This ’34 Woody practically glowed on the show floor
Nice Ghost flames on this Willys
I just love the lines on these cars
This v10 powered Rolls Royce has been making it’s rounds online
Like a sir..
This 34 Ford ‘Archetype’ was a Ridler finalist and quite unique
I personally loved the stack configuration
Troy Trepainer’s builds have always stood out to me at any show
The amount of style and attention to detail is always off the charts. Take a look at the trunk lip on this Torino and the circular indents in it that are ehcoed throughout the car
The colours used on this car were incredible as was the fit and finish of everything
Great looking, functional, interior
Boss 429 powerplant under the hood
The winner of the 2013 ridler aware was this ’40 Ford Coupe
This ex race car was dubbed ‘Checkered Past’
A fuel injected, supercharged, flat head was found between the fenders
For those waiting on the AutoRama Extreme coverage that should be live next week!
