Every year the Motor city is the stage for one of the largest indoor automotive custom shows in the world. The past few years we’re proud to have been able to be apart of it. Last year the Dream Garage display won the Best commercial display at the event and this year we tried to top ourselves with some amazing new partners and demo vehicles.

First up we brought out the Vintage Pirelli shop truck which we debuted at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Featuring a GM performance LS3 powerplant and 6 speed trans along with Moser custom axles and Halo Supercars custom tailored frame to accommodate the upgrades. Our friends at QA1 sell some amazing bolt on tubular A- arms and adjustable coilovers which will come in quite handy on the Hot Rod power tour. Next up we brought out a Hybrid Fisker Karma , with a set of Dropstars newest 22″ staggered wheel set up on it. This car is a attention getter , a lot more than we could have imagined.  Most people that come into the Garage have never even seen one in a magazine , much less in person. Lastly we had the ABM Camaro SS once again with some new wheels bolted up also. Featuring a new 3rd gen Airlift suspension and Accuair management system. The car also shows off some great Modern Bowtie exterior styling.

This Autorama is most important of all of them because of the World reknowned Ridler award. This year the Pirelli great 8 was chosen and within minutes this guy picked the Ridler winning choice due to the cars wow factor alone. JF Launier won this years Ridler Award with a stunning 1964 Buick Riviera. We had people from 9am till 10pm crowding the display all weekend, it was an incredible event for getting the word out on Gladiator Garageworks newest select premium Garage line of components along with SSBC performance brake upgrades for Classics and Muscle cars and the amazing new VHX line of Gauges from our partners at Dakota Digital. We also showed tons of folks the RGB led lighting goodies from Oracle for their classics and motorcycles as well. Pirelli tires was also on hand with their motorsports rig and we tag teamed the crowds by handing out the new social media cards and swag for people that took a few seconds to fill out our new on site survey.  We are headed to Indiana this weekend for Cavalcade of Customs , if your around come check us out and get familiar with the latest and greatest from our 2014 partners.
