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!

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.
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.

We're honored to see the Mr. Chevy '55 and hauler on display in the Tri-Five Invitational at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA! This this amazing gathering of influential tri-five hot rods, customs, and racers showcased some of the best of all time. The 1955 Gasser is original, and the hauler was partially restored by the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. Thanks to Goodguys Rod & Custom Association for sharing this pic in their gallery!
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).
The 2017 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California, had something cool for every kind of hot rod enthusiast to drool over, and our buddy Richard Waitas from MagnaFlow captured this gallery of images and shared them with us. Rich is always seeking out cool and innovative elements on cars, and he had a lot to choose from this year.
