Autorama returned to Detroit’s Cobo/TCF Center for its 69th year on the weekend of March 4th, bringing with it the sights and sounds of hot rods and custom cars. The Hot Rod Shop, a custom shop out of Troy, MI, was one of many vendors, builders, and car clubs present to display their latest creations. We at Fusion Marketing are proud to have worked with the Hot Rod Shop of Troy, as they took home four first-place trophies from the show!
The Hot Rod Shop entered five vehicles in the competition and won four first-place awards! Having won these awards, the team is looking forward to providing its customers with high-quality custom vehicles for many more years.
When asked if anyone else was involved in The Hot Rod Shop’s success, owner Jamie replied, “I would like to thank my family, my customers, My crew Brendan, Drew, Henry, and Ryan, Fusion Marketing for all of our display materials, and lastly, everyone who came out to support us over the weekend!”
Automobile enthusiasts flock to Autorama for its high-profile event and fierce competition. So to win four of the five categories is a tremendous honor for The Hot Rod Shop.
The Hot Rod Shop’s entries included:
Contemporary Custom 2020-Current
To win in the Contemporary Custom 2020-Current category, Will Baker’s black 2020 Dodge Charger Scatpack received an AirLift Performance suspension and a Procharger supercharger.
A 700r4 Transmission, custom air suspension, and a Holley Sniper EFI helped Fahad Qureshi’s blue 1963 Chevy Impala win first place in the Lowrider Custom category.
Conservative Sports 2006-2019
The Hot Rod Shop installed a Procharger Supercharger and Doug electrical cutouts on Adam Kazarian’s grey 2017 Chevy Corvette ZO6. As a result, this car took first place in Autorama’s Conservative Sports 2006-2019 category.
Conservative Pickup 2000-2019
Bryan Villareal’s Blue 2016 GMC Sierra can run 28-inch tires with a custom suspension. Adding a raised bed floor, which they lined and coated, helped the Hot Rod Shop win first place in the conservative pickup category.
Conservative Hardtop 1970
After installing vintage air heat and air conditioning units, an American Auto Wire harness, a Dakota Digital dash, Blueprint LS engine, RideTech tubular suspension with coilovers, and a swapped transmission, Larry Beers entered his Red 1970 Chevrolet Nova into the Conservative Hardtop 1970 category. Despite the fact that it did not win, it was a fantastic car to see at the show.
It was an excellent year for the Hot Rod Shop of Troy, Michigan, as they took home four first-place trophies at the Autorama! The HRS team is thrilled to have taken home this year’s awards and intends to use them as motivation to continue to raise the bar for their customers in the coming years.
Fusion Marketing has worked with The Hot Rod Shop on everything from printing and marketing materials to website design. This year, we supplied them with flyers, table cloths, feather banners, business cards, and stickers for their display at Autorama. We couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come for our friends!
