The 2013 Autorama at Cobo Hall in Detroit drew large numbers over the weekend.
The annual auto extravaganza showcased all kinds of cool cars from original classics like the '70 Chevelle's and the '68 GTO's to custom Cadillac pick-up trucks with Lamborghini doors.
It's been sort of a family tradition to go with my father since I was young. For the first time, we took my 6-year-old son to check out the different Bat mobiles and of course the life size replica of Mater (without the TA) from the movie "Cars".
I also got a chance to chat with Chip Foose – one of my favorite custom automotive designers.
The Autorama is a much different experience than the North American International Auto Show. The Autorama is us showing them what kind of cars we can build.
