Detroit International Car Show Makes Its Debut At Cobo Center

DETROIT (WWJ) – August is fast becoming the classic car show month! Just ahead of the Woodward Dream Cruise, the Detroit International Classic Car Show makes its debut at Cobo Center.

Detroiter David Agee has entered his ’62 T-Bird.

“It’s a ’62 Thunderbird, with a 390 in it … it’s midnight blue,” said Agee.

He said that if his grandson gets good grades that the T-Bird could be his someday.

Agee is not trying to sell any of his cars he just likes to restore them – and show them off – he said he’s looking forward to rolling out his ‘vette for the Dream Cruise.

“I’m going to drive my ’73 Corvette convertible at the Dream Cruise … I’ve got three of them (classic cars).

The organizer is Eric Huang of Detroit International Auto Salon, he’s looking forward to this show being the start of a whole new industry; one that would include rebuilding, refinishing and re-selling classic and collectible cars.

A number of cars at the show do have for sale signs on them, though, in case you need a sweet ride for Dream Cruise which officially runs on Saturday.

The Detroit International Classic Car Show runs Aug. 14-16 at Cobo Center, Macomb Hall in Detroit.
