Gallery: Some of Our Favorite Mopars From 2016 Detroit Autorama


Sure, the Detroit scene might be a holdover from a bygone era, but the annual Detroit Autorama is to the Motor City as BBQ and country music is to Nashville – alive and inseparable. Celebrating its 64th anniversary, the traditional car show of course, is most noted for the Pirelli Great Eight and the legendary Ridler Award (named after the late Don Ridler who helped to form the Autorama during its formative years). The latter of the two keeping the ISCA (International Show Car Association) judges very busy.

In addition to these six and even sometimes seven-figure car builds, comes a wide bumper crop of car builders, maybe not contending for the top flight trophies, but recognition and a little hardware to boot. Of those many builds, you’ll find some incredible examples of Mopars, showing their freshly restored or heavily modified vehicle at Autorama. In addition to some meticulously preserved Chryslers from nearly every generation, we also basked in the glory of several cool customs, a few vintage racers, and some truly unique creations.

Thanks to Jim Bur, friend to Mopar Connection Magazine, we’ve got a great mini gallery of some of our favorite Mopars that graced the showfloor at this year’s Autorama.
