Team Detroit Racing brings out the big dogs to Detroit’s Cobo Hall
If you have never been to an Autorama event, there are really very few car shows like it in the country. The Detroit Autorama has an obvious bias towards classic and modern vehicles from Detroit’s Big 3 and through the massive Cobo Hall there are amazing examples of the cars that have carried the torch from Chrysler, GM and Ford. Many of these cars are 100% spotless show cars, spending their time nestled away in the garage with the exception of clean, low-humidity days and it is not that hard to understand – as these are truly some of the best-looking cars in the area. There are collections of vehicles that come from other parts of the country but the majority of the cars at the Detroit Autorama are some of the cleanest cars from the biggest clubs in the Metro Detroit area.
However, not every car at the Detroit Autorama is restricted to car-show duty and Team Detroit Racing is a fine example, offering one of the show’s largest group displays showing off purpose-built muscle machines from the Detroit Big 3…including a 1948 Fiat altered racer. As you approach the Team Detroit Racing display, the bright orange Fox Body Mustang (shown above) with the car suspended in a wheels-up launch makes the area impossible to miss. That’s not fluff either, as Carl Weinreich’s orange ’91 Mustang has gone 9.17 @148 in the quarter mile.
