What can I expect? 
The Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama Presented by Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers will celebrate the 50th Annual show in Cleveland at the I-X Center on March 18-20, 2016.

The inaugural show was held at the Cleveland Convention Center in 1967, with the "Former Fifty" and the "Featured Fifty" vehicles. As part of our 50th Annual celebration, we will resurrect the "Former Fifty" out of winners from the past shows.  They will be displayed on Thunder Row as part of the 2016 Crusin' Times All Stars. In addition, the "Featured Fifty" will be a combination of ISCA Show Cars from around the country to the many specialty vehicles that once graced the show floor from 1967 through the 2016 show. These will include Drag-U-La (1967), The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Spy Car (1968), The Illusion (1967)m The Red Baron Roadster (1970), The Morque Machine (1982), which was inspired by the TV show "Mork and Mindy," and many, many more!

With more than 1,000 custom cars, trucks, bikes, tractors, military equipment, and vintage aircraft, it's the largest show of its kind in the world!
