is it just me or are all theses car polka dotted?
Thansk for the pics, guys. I striped trophies from 9:30 to 7 on Saturday, and I never got to make it upstairs all weekend. I worked my ass of this weekend. It was worth it though because we got some great feedback on the trophies and we also won best club display. Good times.
Never tried to post pics though aol, but try this.
If it doesn't work, let me know by PM and I'll do sumpin els.
Couple of the pics are personals of a buddy and his 15 year old "car guy"
Thanks for the pictures guys......Did anyone happen to get anymore pix of that purple 41 Ford coupe with the hard-top chop ?....I can't get enough of that beauty.....
Chad, I took a shitload of this sedan. Don't know how to post but pm me and I'll send them to you.
I'd have rather been there in person but couldn't be. Any and all pictures are great.
The fact that someone actually remembered to take pictures while they were there impresses me.
I have a bunch of shots of Winfield's cars. Is that guy Kobayashi on here that had the white pearl 46ish Ford? That thing was the tits. He was in front of the Kopper Kart pulling in on setup day and word on the street is that he assembled half the car in his spot and was even painting some stuff right inside. I'll post pics once I get a free minute and organize the pics, I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep.
if anyone needs pics posted you can send them to my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and i'll post them up for ya...BILLY IT WAS AWESOME MEETING YOU AND JOE i just wish we could have hung out longer
That Pontiac was pretty cool, I even like it cause it's a four door!
that car was straight as hell and only had 51k miles original on it when i sold it to jason two years ago
great pics ..
LIAR! I passed you, the wife and the baby on the way up the escalator!
Tuck and roll white for under the fender wells????? Now thats something i've never seen....
Really! Have a look at a lot of 'old kustoms' a hell of a lot i've seen have them...!
Hehe, indoor photos are hard to take with the lights....
all of gene's cars were amazing, i even like the headlights on the orange merc' for some reason, and i usually always hate when thats done
thanks for the pictures! they look great! i wish i coulda made it i live too far away tho...
Just some of mine.
That Kobayashi 46ish Ford.

Alexander Bros. Had dinner with the owner Lou on Sat night, awesome guy.
Kopper Kart Team Builder's Chioce.
And of course, the Kart.

cool pics. it was nice meeting you punkabilly. see ya around this summer.
Then you would have missed LOTS of nicely done hot rods and customs including at least 5 HAMBer's cars that took home trophies and/or picks.
Yup, not all HAMBers like the same thing.
The Extreme Autorame is definatly making it's mark, But the Detroit AutoRama is still the greatest indoor car show of it's kind.
Congrats to the HAMBers that showed upstairs as well.
Dice's car was awesome....He was nice enough to allow us over his stantions to check it out up close. He is one nice guy.... His was one of my favorites upstairs.... Thanks for the pictures!
i hung out with Dice Kobayashi alot on setup day...7 hours to put it together on the show floor , and i was there when he drove in with salt all over it, aqnd some big wig said hey man great car whys is so dirty,,, to which he replied, "Becuase i'm poor carhauler too much money" I love that cat
We were two cars behind him in line for Cobo. While we waited to get in and looked at his car he made the quote of the weekend. "This car is straighter than a Kentucky race horse!". We checked in on him as he FINISHED his car at the show all day Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday AM and we all cheered when he won his class. Looking forward to seeing him again.
Awesome, I didn't know he won. That was probably one of the only cars upstairs (aside form our friends the the cavalcade of customs) that was a true kustom not built by a huge shop. Gotta hand it to him, the car was great.
