  1. Well...it’s gonna happen...won’t have to worry about snow..should be a great way to get ready for the car season..I’m happy with the change, as much as it was a nice way to break up the Winter...it sucked as a participant..I bet this will be huge...

    Michigan Hot Rod Association has moved Autorama to a Spring show, April 30th - May 2nd

    Man...right during prime migration. I'll be UP in Da Yoop. But I, too, think it'll be a good move.
     
  3. Thanks for that update. Hope things look brighter by then. Could become the permanent date going forward?!:D;)

    Thanks, loveoftiki. I might consider entering the basement show this year, just depends on conditions then. Good to hear some good news for a change!

    I looked on line for a link that has the new dates but was unable to find it. If you have a website that has the revised dates please post it. I would like to forward the link to people I know that don’t read the HAMB.
    Thanks!

    I would like to see that date permanently too. Its early enough that its not time yet/wont compete with outdoor car shows and people haven't started doing any vacationing yet either. Also, it will pull a lot more cars. The hassle of getting a car in and out of detroit in the winter..... trailers (enclosed for most), its just too big of a hassle that most people don't want to go through the hassle and just don't bring anything. I think it would make the show much...much bigger.

    I try to go every year, I think I've been to at least the last 5. I'm not sure how many more cars they can fit in there, the place always seems packed. Even the basement seemed like it was jammed the last few times I've gone. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't know how it could be any bigger unless they expand outside or something? It'll be much nicer for the guys (and gals) taking cars for sure.

    Numbers have been declining for about the last 10 years. There are big open areas upstairs that were never there a decade ago. The basement is much more spread out than it use to be, and no offense to anyone, but there's been some pretty sub-par stuff down there the last few years.

  12. Yep...agreed...there’s a ton of unused space upstairs..also could do a better job of putting cars in..but I think they’re doing what they gotta do to fill
    the room..and yes the basement has had some junk as of late..hell the horny dudes bus took up half an isle..no doubt numbers and quality of cars has been on the decline..I’m hoping this will happen and it will be big..Hell might even have to whip up a Poor Boys Display..

    According to the web site, it says March 5 - 7. Please correct me if I'm wrong?

  15. MHRA is the group that puts the show on..They announced on their site yesterday about the date change...then today posted the Homer Simpson “Doh” pic stating they may have jumped the gun, but will be announcing updates dates and times in the next few days

    @Harms Way may have some insight...
     
  16. Sweet...it will be end of April...

    This is good. Hopeful.
    I need it. We need it.
    End of April, beginning of May. Here in Michigan, the weather could be really nice or at least trying hard to be. Absolutely better than January February. For sure, a feeling of new life in the air. Looking forward to it.

    Do It outside ......Move it to Belle Isle ....that way it could be secured
    the Roll Out could be over the MacArthur Bridge....

    The possibility of nicer weather could mean more entries. That could mean outdoor activities. Preferred parking. Cruises from TCF to Belle Isle. Yada, yada. We'll see.

    Unfortunately the ocd guys upstairs that literally wrap their tires with saran wrap when rolling them out of the trailer.. would probably have some concerns with an outside show..

    I'm interested in getting my car into the basement part of the show. My wife and I visited the area once for literally 36 hours to visit the Henry Ford Museum. We really want a chance to go back and spend a little more time exploring. It would be cool to drop the car off, explore Motor City and see a bucket list show too. Gonna look into it. If they have a very dimly lit corner of the basement I might have a chance to sneak the coupe in.
    Gonna mail in my application this weekend for the traditional section so we shall see

    Belle Isle... that would be nice.
    Call it, "The Basement".
    Two completely different shows at the same time.
    More room at the exhibition building for the guys with Saran wrapped tires. Very elite and sanitary... as they like it.
    And lots of room at Belle Isle for the guys with dirty tires. Sunshine and the smell of exhaust... as we like it.
    I'd go to both shows.

    Only thing about springtime here. A good chance of rain.

    I haven't been to Belle Isle for years. Are there any indoor facilities that would work for a car show?

    MHRA used to have their fall picnic there back in the 70's, as I remember.
