The 57th Annual Murray O Reilly Auto Parts Autorama – Street Rodder

The 57th Annual Murray O’ Reilly Auto Parts Autorama – 57th Detroit Autorama

You wouldn’t know it from recent news reports, but the TV and radio reporters have got it all wrong. Detroit isn’t dead. The spirit of the Motor City is alive and well and it was on display at the 57th annual Murray’s O’Reilly Auto Parts Autorama, presented by Meguiar’s.

Over a three-day weekend, thousands upon thousands poured into the Cobo Exhibition Center, the 700,000-square-foot convention facility located in downtown Detroit, Michigan, to check out the latest from hot rod builders from all over the United States and Canada.

Owned by the Michigan Hot Rod Association and produced by Championship Auto Shows, Inc. the Autorama has come a long way in its nearly six decade existence. Initially formed to fund the building of a local race track for hot rodders, the show has grown to what some believe is the most important car show in the country.

That feeling is due, in part, to the creation of the Don Ridler Memorial Award, which was named for an early promoter of the show. Nowadays the Ridler, given to a vehicle that emphasizes exemplary levels of creativity, engineering, and workmanship, has become one of the most sought-after trophies a car owner can attain.

In some years, there seems to be an obvious winner as soon as the announcement on Friday afternoon of the Pirelli Great 8 (what the group of eight contenders for the Ridler each year are called), but this year the competition was close. Featured on, each of the Pirelli Great 8 all looked like winners, but the eventual top dog was Doug Cooper and his 1932 B400 that was built at Alan Johnson’s hot rod shop in Gadsden, Alabama. At first glance the Deuce was about as clean a build as you’d ever want but, upon closer inspection, there were literally dozens and dozens of refinements and modifications that made this car like no other, and a deserving recipient of one of the nation’s top prizes in rod building.

Some of the other reasons this show is so successful is there is also a lot to do besides look at the 700 or so cars on display. Customizer (and Bubble Top King) Darryl Starbird was the 2009 Builder of the Year, and he had many of his creations at the event (see page 60 for more on Starbird). One of the most recognized T-buckets in history, the Kookie Car, is so famous it has spawned several clones of it over the years, and one of the best was featured in a special area of the show along with Norm Grabowski, the `50s TV star who is generally acknowledged as the father of the custom T-bucket.

Another attraction was The Motor City Auto Arts Pinstriper Charity Jam, which is a carry over from past panel jams where dozens of pinstripers from across the country donate their time and artwork (much of it created during the show in front of spectators) to a worthy charity (this year it was Leader Dogs for the Blind) and money is raised through an auction of the artwork (see page 48 for more on the auction).

The show is one of seven events STREET RODDER will team with Ford Racing to find the Best Ford in a Ford. Three cars from each event will be picked by a representative from both Ford Racing and the magazine that best represents the hobby and, though some of the top finalists will receive a prize package, the winner will receive a new crate engine from Ford Racing. Rules, requirements, and the list of shows where the awards will be presented can be found on

And, if the acres of hot rods and cool customs wasn’t enough for you, you could travel back in time and hit the basement of Cobo Center, which is where 100 or so beater and traditional type of rods were parked in a show-within-a-show. The Autorama was one of the first indoor car shows in the country to recognize these hardcore hot rods with a place of their own, and the location has a historical significance, too: it was where the first Autorama at Cobo was held back in 1964. Awards were presented (such as the Hard Luck Trophy and the King of Kustom award) and rock-a-billy bands played, and it was a completely different scene than what was going on up the escalator and in the main hall.

Kids are also taken care of at the Autorama with appearances of famous TV and movie cars (such as Speed Racer Mach 5 and two cars from K.I.T.T.), and older folks got to meet and greet Chip Foose and Chris Jacobs from TV’s Overhaulin’ or ogle (or at least get an autograph from) Carolyn Savage.

There were book signings, seminars, and autograph sessions all around the show, but one of the best functions to happen was done before the event was even open to the public. On Friday morning a group of roughly 600 students from surrounding high schools attended a seminar with a guest speaker that has their roots in the automotive aftermarket (everyone from Chip Foose and Troy Trepanier to IHRA drag racers have been featured speakers in the past), and then the kids get into the show to check out the cars before the public does. Many of these pre-adults have never seen cars made before 1960 in person, and many are impressed with what they see. People always wonder “Where are the kids of tomorrow going to get the chance to experience hot rodding?” but it happens at 11 of the shows the ISCA sponsors all around the country.

So it’s safe to say whether you’re a kid or just a kid at heart, the Detroit Autorama is always worth a visit, so start planning a trip–the 58th annual Detroit Autorama is less than 10 months away!

Philadelphia Auto Show 2015 drives into town Jan. 31-Feb. 8

#philly auto show

The Convention Center hosts a week of displays and events

PhillyVoice Staff

Car fanatics, start your engines: the Philadelphia Auto Show drives into the Pennsylvania Convention Center Saturday, Jan. 31, through Sunday, Feb. 8. More than 700 vehicles will be on display in 700,000 square feet of space just waiting for you to ooh  and ahh.

The show is perfect for attendees who are in the market for a new car. Manufacturers will host displays full of knowledgeable people to give you info about your top picks. Better yet, the PAS is a non-selling show, so the “product specialists” won’t be too pushy.

The best part about the show, of course, is getting to sit in tons of cars. You can pretend you’re a cast member from one of the seven “The Fast and the Furious” movies all day long. Personally, I attend every year just to sit in the latest Volkswagen Beetle and pretend I can afford it.

The show’s lineup includes 2016 pre-production models from Fiat, Lincoln, Mazda and Buick, along with plenty of Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari and Maserati exotics. Classic cars from the ’20s and ’50s also will be on display.

Over the course of the week, Jeep, Toyota and Kia will offer “Ride Drive” opportunities for select vehicles. At the show’s Face-Off display, you can vote for your favorite car – import versus domestic – and enter to win prize packs that include NASCAR and IndyCar tickets. You’ll also be able to check out custom vehicles owned by Philadelphia Eagles like Chris Polk, Najee Goode and Jeremy Maclin.

The show will have plenty of food and drink vendors on hand, but with a hand stamp, you can head out to Reading Terminal Market for your midday meal, too. If you’re worried about crowding, head to the show on Super Bowl Sunday when the rest of the world is gearing up for the big game.

Philadelphia Auto Show

Saturday, January 31 through Sunday, February 8

Saturdays: 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Weekdays: Noon-10 p.m.

Sunday, Feb. 1: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8: 9 a.m.-8 p.m.

Pennsylvania Convention Center

Philly Auto Show: 5 can t miss things to see at the show

#philly auto show

Philly Auto Show: 5 can’t miss things to see at the show

Get your engines started because this year’s Philadelphia Auto Show — at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia — has some fun, quirky finds. Usually people go looking to spot their next new car, but there are other things to see here. Promise.

First, one car has been getting a lot of attention. Built by high school students and their teachers,make sure you don’t walk past this sporty blue gem. At the Workshop School in Philadelphia, students and teachers designed and built a car that runs on bio-diesel fuel.

The bio-diesel fuel came from leftover fryer oil from Federal Donuts. So basically, the car runs on Federal Donuts fryer oil. Really. It does.

“The students at the school have been making hybrid and electric vehicles for a long time,” said Simon Hauger, the school’s principal.

But the goal of this car was to make it “fast, cool-looking and earth-friendly.”

And this car is definitely all of those things. And running on fryer oil — vegetable oil — is environmentally friendly, “it burns cleaner” than regular diesel fuel, Hauger said, it “removes the product from the waste stream,” and it’s a “much better engine lubricant.”

“There are tons of upsides,” he said.

Second, make sure you take a ride at Came Jeep. This reporter hopped into a 2016 black Wrangler Rubicon with driver T.J. and off we went.

Just make sure you put on your seatbelt. It’s definitely a bumpy ride. You go over bumpy “logs,” steep inclines and more. And be prepared to lean over. The Wranger rode over a steep hill and didn’t tip over. But it sure feels like it will.

It’s a lot of fun. And it doesn’t cost anything to take a ride.

Third. take a walk over to the exotic cars. Ever wanted to see a Maserati or Lamborghini up close. I know, these are definitely out-of-reach dream cars that everyone drools over. It’s a lot of to dream, though.

There’s a huge section of exotic cars, so take your time and browse.

Fourth, check out the Corvette Z06 pre-production car that product specialist Sean Bennett said “gives a foreign performance for a domestic price.”

“It’s in a league of it’s own. It’s an argument-ending car,” he added.

But don’t go running to purchase this car yet. It starts at $78,000. That’s still nothing to sneeze at.

Finally, check out the classic cars section.

There’s the 1929 DuPont Le Mans Speedster, the 1970 Plymouth Superbird and the 1954 Austin-Healy. People love looking at classic cars, and there are tons to see here.

You can’t sit in these cars, but you can get pretty close.

Philadelphia Auto Show tickets are $13 for adults, $6 for seniors and children, children 6 and under are free. The show runs from Jan. 31 through Feb. 8. For more information, visit .

Philadelphia Auto Show gets in gear with Black Tie Tailgate

#philly auto show

Philadelphia Auto Show gets in gear with Black Tie Tailgate

Friday, January 30, 2015


Dressed to the nines, people filed into the Pennsylvania Convention Center for the 2015 Philadelphia Auto Show Black Tie Tailgate.

Friday night it was all about the kids. Proceeds from the tailgate benefit the neonatology division at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

This year’s tailgate has raised more than $425,000.

“This is mostly research money. We’re hiring research people, we’re doing pulmonary research and airway research and neurology research,” said Dr. William Fox, CHOP Neonatology.

Glamour, glitz, fast cars, food and dancing – kicked off the nine day event where people can roam 700,000 square feet filled with automobiles from 40 manufacturers here in Philadelphia.

6abc is a proud sponsor of the event.

“The economic impact of this show on the region is over $40 million. Every year it grows,” said John McNichol, CEO of Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Whatever your pleasure from the exotic to the conventional.

“Pretty much all the new models,” said Jenna Manzione.

You can touch and even sit inside.

“I love it. It’s really cool,” said Lori Nolan.

“They use this as a spring board to go out and buy a car. It’s a really great way to come down and see cars – there’s no hassles, there’s no salesmen on top of you,” said McNichol.

Consumers use the auto show to look for new trends. Expect this year’s choices to reflect low gas prices.
