Massive 2017 Detroit Autorama 500 Image Photo Gallery

​Many people are familiar with the Detroit Autorama and the prestigious Ridler award, but the reality is there are hundreds of cars on display. This year we again sent V8 Detroit correspondent Joe Miuccio to Cobo Hall to capture the entire event and not just the Great 8 Ridler contendors.  We hope you enjoy clicking through this 500 image gallery covering the muscle cars, customs, hot rods, rat rods, and more from the 2017 Detroit Autorama!

V8 Radio: How It All Began, Car Trivia, a V8 Track Day, and More!

On this episode of V8 Radio, Mike Clarke and Kevin Oeste go back in time as Mike made the mistake of asking Kevin how he got started in this business. It started back in 1996 when Kevin and his buddy Paul Wieshuber embarked on the Hot Rod Power Tour in a car worthy of a junkyard, and it all went downhill from there.

Muscle Cars At The Strip

Muscle Car Of The Week - 427 Galaxie R-Code 4-Speed Monster

1964 Ford Galaxie 500 427 R-Code

This is one of those cars that sets your imagination on fire.   A long, Raven black ‘64 Ford Galaxie 500 that glistens like a prize fighter in the ring, with a heart just as big.   Ford was good at building big and comfy family cars, but they also did a heck of a job stripping them down into racing versions, like our R-code version with it’s 425 HP 427 powerplant. From The Brothers Collection.

2017 Grand National Roadster Show

Our friend Josh Mishler from Advanced Plating was kind enough to share some photos he snapped at the 2017 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California.   The event always features the pinnicle in hot rods and customs, and this year, was home to the 60th anniversary of the tri-five Chevrolet display as well.    Troy Ladd and the crew from Hollywood Hot Rods took home the highest honor of the America's Most Beautiful Roadster trophy (AMBR).
