Spend your weekend marveling at classic hot rods and custom cars and motorcycles at the Autorama at the TCF Center Feb. 28-March 1, 2020.

Enter a “world of wheels” at Autorama, the touring show of custom cars, at the TCF Center (formerly the Cobo Center) Feb. 28-March 1, 2020.

The show will feature more than 800 custom cars, trucks and motorcycles in addition to contests, live performances and celebrity appearances.

The Ridler Award, with a prize of an engraved trophy, custom-made embroidered jackets and a check for $10,000, will be awarded to the vehicle that shows the most creativity, engineering and quality workmanship on a customized car.

If hot rods aren’t your thing, hang out with celebrities like Discovery Channel’s Aaron Kaufman, WWE Legend Ric Flair, Cody Walker from The Fast and the Furious and for the kids, Spider-Man, among others.

If you’re more interested in dancing the weekend away, catch a variety of rockabilly musical performances throughout the weekend.
