Detroit Speed Hosts Our Largest Open House Ever!
Mooresville, NC – The 2016 version of the Detroit Speed Open House was easily our best and largest ever. The Open House takes place the Friday evening after the Goodguys Charlotte show from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM but that didn’t stop people from arriving in their muscle cars, hot rods and more as early as 3:00 PM. Weather can sometime play a part in the overall turnout but Friday we were blessed with perfect fall weather. By 5:00 the parking lots and grass area were already filled with any classic you can imagine. Parking was at a premium with people lining the street as far as the eye could see.
One of the best parts about the Open House is the BBQ dinner. For a $5 dollar donation you were treated to a fine meal provided by Shane’s rib shack with 100% of the proceeds going to the Todd Gartshore and John Menzler Memorial Funds which donates to the Victory Junction Gang.
By sundown, there were hundreds and hundreds of cars and easily over 1000 people in attendance. Angelo Vespi’s 1969 Camaro, Moe’s Charger and more were in the shop for people to see close up that may have not had a chance previously.
This is one of the crowing jewels of the year for Detroit Speed and we take great pride in being able to open up our shop for our customers and fans and this year did not disappoint. As the show season winds down we will look back at this Open House as one of our best ever. Now the focus shifts to the SEMA show starting November 1st and running through November 4th and the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational that immediately follows November 4th – 6th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
