Ryan Thompson attends the 2019 Detroit Autorama at Cobo Hall and gives his honest review of the show. Most notably, his commentary about the Great 8 contenders indicates that the show’s dynamic seems to be changing.

He thought it would be really cool to find a 1967 Chevy short bed pickup and then do something that the factory designers should have done back in 1967. How about combining the body of a C-10 with the drivetrain of a Z/28, and then sprinkle some first-generation Camaro bits into the mix? And when you’re done, call it a C/28.
