I'm here at the 61st Detroit Autorama, America's greatest car show.  It's a wonderful event put on by the team at Championship Auto Shows.  The cornerstone of the 3-day show revolves around the Ridler Award, which is awarded to the best vehicle making its first public appearance at the show. 
I haven't been able to attend the show for a couple years and I'm excited to be back.  I'm truly honored that this year I am being inducted into the Detroit Autorama Circle of Champions.  Really looking forward to the Ridler's Ball ceremony Friday night and getting to spend the evening with my close friends and colleagues.
I'm also displaying our recently  completed 1948 Cadillac "Eldorod" at the show.  We've only shown it once before, at the SEMA show in early November where it was GM's choice for Best of Show. 
2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the Ridler Award.  In order to properly honor its effect on the industry, the show has gathered many of the past winners of the award.  We at Foose were honored to have won 3 Ridlers and we will have all three past champions on display.  "Stallion", GrandMaster" and "Impression" will all be featured in a Foose Ridler section.
It should be a fun time for all.  If you're nearby you won't want to miss it.  The show runs from March 8-10, 2013.  For more information, please visit their website: http://www.autorama.com/?page_id=245.
Be sure to check out our Facebook page for up to date pictures from the event and check back here in a few days for a recap blog.
Hope to see you if you're at the show!
