2013 Sacramento Autorama Photo Highlights

This past weekend was the 63rd Annual Sacramento Autorama held at the Cal Expo Center. It was the first time for California Car Cover exhibiting at the event and we had a great time meeting with long time customers. Here are some photos from the show.




A few of the pinup contest entrants stop by the booth to say hello.
 Quite a few of the award winning cars had been on display at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona a few weeks ago, but it was still great to check out the cool customs.



 Up in the mezzanine, there was plenty of candy paint and white wall tires on display.

 The winner of the 2013 America's Most Beautiful Roadster built by Brizio Street Rods was on display at the show.






There were hundreds of cars on display at the show and I tried to get photos of most of them. The Cal Expo Center is pretty spread out, so there was a lot of ground to cover to see all the cars.






 This vehicle won the award for Custom of the Year at the Autorama.





 The Cal Expo Center had 11 buildings full of cars. In the smaller buildings, there were nice collections of bicycles, race cars and hot rods on display.








 On Saturday and Sunday outside the main building, the Autorama hosted the Drive-In which welcomed local car owners to put their cars on display. This casual show had some nice vehicles that showed up on both days.

 A nice feature on the Autorama was the hot rod legends book signing. The event lined up some of the most well known hot rod builders of the past 40 years and gave fans the opportunity to meet them and have them sign books and literature.

Model Car Contest

The Suede Palace housed a few traditional style classics and hot rods, plus was home to live music and the pin-up contest during the weekend.



 There were over 250 cars on display in the Pavillion alone. It was great to see many local clubs supporting the show all weekend.


Do you follow California Car Cover and me on Instagram? Here are some of the cool pics I posted to our feed from over the weekend. Follow along for more cool photos from car shows all over the country.


 We made a pretty cool Customweave California Car Cover for Bones' Cadillac Wagon.

Our Sales Manager Brian had to take measurements on quite a few car covers over the weekend at the show.
We had a lot of fun at the show. Stay up to date with where California Car Cover and I will be next by following us on Facebook or keeping tabs on our events page on our main website.
