[PICS] The Corvettes of the 2012 Detroit Autorama

[PICS] The Corvettes of the 2012 Detroit Autorama

Last weekend marked our annual pilgrimage to Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit for the yearly festival of chrome and horsepower known as Autorama. Each year thousands of attendees wander aisle after aisle checking out the custom cars, trucks, motorcycles, and hot rods. This year was the 60th installment of the show.

Early reports had attendance up almost 15% from last year’s show. Based on the monster crowds we encountered most of the day that number seems reasonable.

Entrants in the show range from 100 point, factory-correct fully-restored show cars to all out ultra-high-end customs. There is no limit to the creativity and talent that is on display. Cars being shown for the first time battle it out for selection into the Great 8 with hopes of taking home the prestigious Ridler Award.

In addition, hundreds of vendors were available selling everything from metal polish to full replacement bodies to restoration services. If you’re looking for your next toy, big or small, there’s the Toy-A-Rama section and the for sale lot depending on what you’re looking for. The lower level houses old school customs as well as traditional and rat rods.

We’ve already given you a sneak peak at some of our favorite Corvettes from the show on our Facebook page, but now you can see some more in the gallery below. We also threw in some of our favorite non-vettes as well.
