Coverage of the Fiftieth Piston Powered Auto-Rama

Piston-Powered Insanity: No shortage of Chevy muscle here

Every year, the International Exposition Center (I-X Center) in Cleveland, Ohio, plays host to the Summit Racing Equipment, I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama presented by Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers; the largest indoor showcase of custom cars, trucks, hot rods, antique construction equipment, motorcycles, tractors, planes, and military equipment in the world.

This year, the I-X Center celebrated the 50th year of piston-powered insanity with over one thousand vehicles on display covering over one million feet of floor space. Needless to say, a pair of comfortable shoes was the right call if you were one of the thousands of enthusiasts taking on this show in person.

If you are a car guy/gal, then there’s a good chance you’ve been to quite a few car shows in your time, but most likely nothing quite like this one. The tremendous variety and sheer number of piston-powered vehicles make this show one of the most unique in the country.

With that said, we’ve done our best to put together a huge image gallery featuring the most Chevy-powered rides we had time to photograph, but there is so much more to this show that nothing compares to hitting this event in person.

If you happen to find yourself near Cleveland, Ohio, in March of 2017, the 51st Piston Powered Auto-Rama is one show to mark off your “bucket list.”
