Detroit AutoRama 2017 coverage: Part 2

Here is part 2 of my AutoRama coverage. Keep in mind, while I took a TON of photos, I'm not covering every car that was there. But this 1968 Chevrolet C-10 pickup was too perfect to ignore. I might not be a truck guy, but I kind of want one of these. 
Everything was done exactly as I would do it. Even down to the wheels.
This Resto-Modded 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle was, like everything else at the the show, perfect. 
The interior looks mint, though that vinyl-covered bench seat wouldn't be ideal for Autocross or Track duty.
This Chevelle, wrapped in matte red, was amazing.
Built by ABC Fabrication, this Chevelle was set up for autocross duty. Again, I wouldn't do this up any other way.
The Chevrolet "Tri-Fives" are iconic cars for anyone interested in American culture. As they were a mass-produced car, there are many different ways to do them up. This one was perhaps my second-favorite from the show, though I'm not sure if I like this one more than the red one from part 1.
This car doesn't look like it sees much time on the road, though. Everything is SO clean!
Here is another Tri-Five, done up in a bit more of a traditional style. Still gorgeous.
This 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner was, allegedly, 100% original, other than the hood. If that's the case, it's an incredibly well-preserved example of an iconic Muscle Car.
This Gasser-style 1929 Ford Pickup was an interesting build. Not the most flashy, unique or even original build, but still cool.
This 1973 Plymouth Roadrunner, built by 4wheeler magazines "Dirt Every Day" Crew, dubbed "Mad Maxxis" was quite impressive. Powered by the new 5.0L Cummins diesel engine, the car seems like something you'd see in a "Mad Max" movie. I'd drive it.
I love classic Cadillacs. This one was no exception. It's EXACTLY the way I'd build one. The ride height, air-suspension and color scheme is perfect.
I especially like the Matte-Blue color under the hood, which matches the soft top. And the matte-bronze color on the engine just makes everything pop. To the shop that built this....I must say...Well Done.
