Please call before attending any community events to make sure they aren’t postponed or canceled as a result of the coronavirus.

Auto shows are one of the more interesting things to do on a nice summer day. They can be found all over, some are outside in parking lots, shopping malls lots, or local parks but at the mercy to the weather and some are inside air conditioned environments like community centers or local businesses. Auto Shows are growing in popularity and numbers. Most auto shows are annual events held once or twice a year in the northern states and mid-west because they are limited to the five warm summer months. In the southern or western states they can have auto shows year round or again in air conditioned venues. I was totally impressed by the condition of the cars and trucks I saw in California and Nevada. The weather there is just perfect for preserving classic cars. Auto shows are a great way to get out an enjoy the summer weather looking at classic cars and trucks. Some owners of these cars have spent considerable time and money restoring and maintaining the cars, it's a labor of love for most that truly love the vehicle and it's great someone does. Have you been to a junk yard lately? That's where they would end up if not loved and maintained. They are regularly attended by automotive industry representatives, dealers, auto journalists as well as car enthusiasts. The current auto show, also known as a motor show or car show, is a public exhibition of current automobile models, older classic cars, debuts, concept cars, or out-of-production classics. Most auto shows occur once or twice a year and we would be happy to list any auto shows you suggest. Just click here to send us your recommendations for an auto show listing.

Street Drags - Milwaukee Mile - Plus Car Show

Wisconsin State Fair Park - Recurring Event - Sept

Currently No Schedule Available.

Update for 2022 - We are sorry to inform everyone that as of this point, we will NOT be having Street Drags at The Milwaukee Mile this summer. When we began these events in 2018 we did so with an agreement that there would be no charge for parking. That changed in 2021 and we absorbed that expense only to have that fee raised again heading into 2022. The fee is such that these events are no longer financially feasible. We truly appreciate everyone that supported these events, building them into something fun for all of us each summer. It is our hope that Wisconsin State Fair Park will reconsider their parking fee structure and allow the return of Street Drags in the future.

This Year: Not Scheduled due to increased parking costs at the Wisconsin State Fair Park.

Woodward Dream Cruise

Detroit MI - Recurring Event

This Year: August 20, 2022

Did you know that the Woodward Dream Cruise actually started as a small fundraiser to raise money for a soccer field in Ferndale, Michigan?

In August 1995, Nelson House and a group of volunteers looked to relive and recreate the nostalgic heydays of the 50s and 60s, when youth, music and Motor City steel roamed Woodward Avenue, America’s first highway. That year, 250,000 people participated—nearly ten times the number expected. The rest, as they say, is history.

Today, the Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest one-day automotive event, drawing 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from around the globe—from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, Japan and the former Soviet Union. North American cruisers from California, Georgia, Canada and all points in between caravan to Metro Detroit to participate in what has become, for many, an annual rite of summer.

Drivin’ from Drive-In to Drive-In
Ted’s, Totem Pole and The Varsity, Hollywood, Wigwam and Suzie Q’s, and, of course, Big Boy. These old-time drive-ins and restaurants that dotted Woodward Avenue were the places to see and be seen during an era remembered perhaps most famously by Hollywood in American Graffiti and Happy Days. These locations were the turnarounds, stopping points and social hangouts for the cruisers of the era.

Michigan’s first drive-in was located near Square Lake Road in Bloomfield Hills. Ted’s Drive Inn became a hangout and one of the avenue’s most popular destinations. It had begun in 1934 as a lunch wagon/trailer and was known for “the world’s largest hot dog,” priced at 35 cents.

The Totem Pole opened in Royal Oak in 1954 and featured a 16-foot totem pole hand carved by Ojibway Chief White Wolf of St. Ignace. The restaurant introduced the “Teletray,” a 2-way speaker through which customers could order the popular Big Chief Burger.

At these locales and others, roller-skating waitresses sporting white bobby socks and serving trays delivered hamburgers and milkshakes to duck-tailed greasers in leather and beauty queens sporting class rings and letter jackets. The real attractions, though, were the cars.Hot rods and muscle cars. Convertibles and hard tops. Oversized tires and custom-painted flames. These marvels of machinery were cool and hot; street machines that cruised Woodward emanating vintage rock and roll from the AM radio coupled with the rumble of a big block V8.
