The Detroit Autorama, also known as “America’s Greatest Hot Rod Show“ is a showcase of custom cars and hot rods held each year at Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan. It is promoted by Championship Auto Shows Incorporated (CASI) and hosted by Michigan Hot Rod Association (MHRA), part of the International Show Car Association (ISCA) schedule for the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series, which includes other prestigious show car events such as the Chicago World of Wheels and Houston Autorama.
The Detroit Autorama is best remembered as home to the Don Ridler Memorial Award, which is presented to the “best in show” at each year’s event, and has been won by many well-known car designers and builders, such as Chip Foose, Jerry Pennington, Troy Trepanier, and Bobby Alloway.
