UPDATED 09/28/2022: Fall is upon us and the year is winding down fast. Have you had enough yet? We haven’t. In that vein, we have just added a show. We will be heading to Evansville, Indiana for the Eville Shindig in mid-October.

When’s The Next Car Show?

1. Detroit Autorama and Autorama Extreme

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. So… 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..

When: March 4-6, 2022

Where: Cobo/TCF CENTER :: 1 Washington Boulevard :: Detroit, MI 48226

2. Spring Turkey Run Car Show

Winter is going strong, and even though Spring is coming, it probably won’t get here soon enough. So, that’s enough of an excuse to head to Daytona International Speedway for the Spring Turkey Run Car Show. It’s Florida. You can make plans and have an expectation that you can enjoy the show.

We like to go to the Panty Raid, put on by the Piston Jammers, when we can. This year is one. We first started vending their shows back when they had it in Downtown Toledo. Now it’s held in a park that feels like it has a secret entrance. It’ll be a good time. So see you there.

The Woodward Dream Cruise Is Coming

The Woodward Dream Cruise Is Coming

dream cruise 2017

The Woodward Dream Cruise for 2017 is fast approaching.  The cool thing about this event is that anybody and everybody can be involved… even accidentally so to speak.  And that’s because it’s an open road and you might have something classic like the Edsel pictured above, and then along side of it, Mom driving her mini-van to the grocery store.  Just know there will be lots of cool rides in the mix, no matter what.

Speedcult will be there too.  We’ll be set up at the Rustbelt Market, found at the corner of Woodward and Nine Mile.  So if you get the itch to buy a cool metal logo after seeing all the cool cars, we’ll be there for you.  Plus there’s lots to do in Ferndale as far as eats and drinks go. 

Anyway, now that I have your attention, I’m sure you are wondering when this fine event will be taking place.  So pull out your calendars boys and girls and pencil in August 19th.  See you then!
