AUTORAMA SACRAMENTO, CA 2020 UPDATE
This year Sacramento Autorama at the Cal Expo Fairgrounds was again a successful combination of hot rods, customs, low riders, bikes, great food, and entertainment including virtual rides. Engine compartments on the various customs were a site to behold. Low riders presented an exceptional showing. A highlight for us was Carl Lembke’s Roots blown flat head dragster with Hilborn mechanical fuel injection.

LAST YEAR’S HIGHLIGHTS
The Sacramento Autorama, February 15-17, 2019 was again a hit. Our favorites were an outstanding lime green Plymouth Daytona Street Hemi appraised at well over a million, a low rider Chevy convertible with stunning modifications probable too fine to ever drive again, numerous Roots blown street rods displayed in most every one of the different halls, as well as a host of mechanical fuel injection hot rods, all our favorites. A restored Nascar 57 Chevy sedan with Rochester fuel injection, a factory cold air pack, and Nascar 6 lug wheels was displayed in the East hall together with hundreds of other custom autos and trucks just in that building. Several thousand custom vehicles throughout. Thanks to Rodshows.com for this special event.
