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

More Info: https://autorama.com/attend/detroit/


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.
