World of Wheels

There are certain events you have to attend in person to fully appreciate and World of Wheels definitely qualifies as a must see. World of Wheels is also known under the moniker of Autorama or Championship Auto Show series, and they claim to be the undisputed leader in indoor custom car shows. After attending the event in February there is no reason to dispute that claim. Not only are the cars top quality the event is handled with professionalism throughout the entire viewing experience. Of course Autorama has plenty of experience hosting 20 events each year throughout the United States and Canada with the largest attendance in Detroit where over 140k people came out to the show.   What type of cars can you expect to see? Great question and it may surprise you to find out it’s much more than Hot rods. While World of Wheels may have gotten their start in the Hot rod scene it has grown its reach well beyond. Kansas City saw fantastic examples of competition cars, specialty and concept vehicles as well. If you have a thing for low riders you should’ve seen what was bouncing around Bartle Hall. With over 50 low riders to choose from the one that stole the show was “Purple Kush” owned by Solo Batrez it’s a 1981 purple Coupe De Ville Cadillac. [Not a valid template] Bartle Hall is about the size of eight football fields and was packed with over 700 cars and thousands of car enthusiasts but those who came with the expectation of just seeing cars came away with so much more. Celebrity appearances were made by FarmTruck and AZN of “Street Outlaws” from the Discovery Channel. And for all of the Fast and Furious fans there were five vehicles on display from the movie franchise, my personal favorite being the 1970 matte black Dodge Charger R/T.   To say there were some great custom paint jobs would be like saying there are a lot of Chiefs fans in Kansas City; it would be an enormous understatement. A black custom 1958 Volkswagen Beetle caught the attention of fans with its life like airbrushed flames and fiery skulls. But at the end of the day all of the individual cars had something special to offer fans.
