UPDATED 01/21/2023: We are already chugging along in the start of a new year, which means the 2023 hot rod season is not far off. Speedcult will be hitting the road again to sell at a bunch of shows. We hope to see you soon.

The list of shows begins. But it is not complete.

When’s The Next Car Show?

When it comes to car shows, especially indoor ones, this is a big one. And what is it you ask? Why it’s the 69th annual Detroit Autorama. Except last year’s was cancelled. otherwise it would have been the 70th. Oh well the intentions were good. Housed in the beautiful Cobo/TCF Center in downtown Detroit, Autorama is spread out on the main floor, while Autorama Extreme is in the lower level. Please note, Speedcult’s big display in the lower level with the traditional rods.

Daytona Turkey Run 2019

Daytona Turkey Run 2019

There are many Thanksgiving traditions like eating turkey and getting together with family and friends. But here’s one you might not have tried: the Daytona Turkey Run. And if you haven’t been to it, you really should check it out.

One of the cool things about it, is, it’s held right on the famous Daytona Speedway. You know the one I’m talking about… The one where all those NASCAR buggies whip around and around for 500 miles of fancy racing.

This year’s event takes place starting November 28th and keeps going right through to December 1st. Cars and sunshine, you just can’t beat it. Especially when you see what we have to deal with here in Detroitsville, USA.

So where would you rather be? At your snow covered, cold, cold house, arguing with your family over who get’s the last drum stick; or hanging out in the warm sunshine of Florida, checking out cool rides while you imbibe a brew or two? That’s what I thought.

Where: Daytona International Speedway :: 1801 W International Speedway Blvd :: Daytona Beach, FL 32114
