Chrome and Ice Car Show


Recommended Posts

We had a car show up here in the north called Chrome and Ice at our local hockey arena. The arena sports an Ontario Hockey League (OHL) team called the Flint Firebirds. The show was put on by the same organizers that do the Back to the Bricks events in Flint that are a complementary/alternative events to the Woodward Dream Cruise every year. The arena has two hocley rinks and it filled them both with 104 cars.

In two weeks it will be time for the Detroit Autorama.

First off - a Knight Industries Two Thousand (a.k.a. KITT) was there. This one was LS powered. What I liked about it was the fact that they painted the Knight Industries logo on the engine cover on both sides plus the Knight symbol on the armrest. This is one the best KITT replicas I've seen.



 This one is just pure drool factor for me. Here is a '72 Lemans that the guy has had since high school. It sports a blown big block Chevy (dang it!) with air conditioning and nitrous. The windows are heavily tinted so you can't see the interior from the outside. I was luck enough to talk to owner and he popped the door open for me to see inside (since the door handles are shaved) and showed me his custom dash. He works for Continental Tire and they purchased VDO gages from Siemens a few years ago. He was given this dash/gages free from his company! They look great. The paint is a custom mix of Lucerne Blue with some metal flake and pearl added in. I asked him what was inspiration for the black "bumblebee" stripe. He said "let's try this and see what it looks like". He said he when he first purchased the spoiler, they placed on the deck lid of a buddy's lime green Dodge Dart, therefore he had to go buy a second one for this car. Now there is a Dodge Dart out there somewhere with a Pontiac spoiler on it!






Here is a unique T-bucket. Ever see one with a Lincoln Zephyr flathead V-12 in it? The owner says he has four spares! Also note - this car has no speedometer, just oil, gas, and water gages.

More pics.

A blown Hemi-powered Ford C-cab custom.


Gorgeous '56 Chevy 4-door surf wagon. Note the ghost flames!


An Eleanor Super Snake. I am not sure who built it. It is supercharged and it also has nitrous and 5-point harness seat belts.

The Grand National next to it is really an original '87 GNX. It is number 506 of 547 built and it was delivered locally to Ron Slivka Buick of Grand Blanc Michigan (now Al Serra Buick-GMC). The price of a Grand National in 1987 was $18,295.00. The GNX package added another $10,995.00, for a total of $29,290.00 MSRP!
