Autorama Ex­treme, in the Cobo Cen­ter base­ment, is the spot for tra­di­tion­ally styled, owner-built (typ­i­cally) hot rods, cus­toms, trucks, and bikes. This year the base­ment was as packed as ever—with ve­hi­cles as well as with an at­mos­phere and en­ergy dif­fer­ent from the main floor. Ac­tiv­i­ties ex­clu­sive to Autorama Ex­treme are the sep­a­rate awards cer­e­mony with cus­tom-made tro­phies, live bands, the Vin­setta Garage Miss Autorama pinup girl con­test, Gene Win­field’s Chop Shop, and an ir­rev­er­ent at­ti­tude that shows it­self in the dis­plays. The ve­hi­cles are traditional; the dis­plays are far from it. The com­mon el­e­ment to up­stairs and down­stairs is the imag­i­na­tion and pas­sion that is poured into the ve­hi­cles.
