Our friends at PREFIX are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. The company started in 1979 as an engineering services company, developing innovative design and engineering solutions for the automotive industry. Now the company operates multiple facilities in Michigan with over 200 employees and has become a single-source American manufacturing, prototype, and concept vehicle solutions provider to automotive, aviation, motion picture, amusement, and a variety of additional industries.
The company has a large connection to the Mopar community. In the past, the company painted all of the body panels for the GEN V Viper (2013 to 2017), bought the Viper performance company known as Arrow Racing Engines, built concepts for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) like the 2017 Chrysler Portal Concept, and created a whole line of speciality aftermarket FCA vehicles including the Ram Minotaur offroad pickup, Viper Madusa Roadster, and Viper Targa model.
Throughout last year, the company held several Cars & Coffee events in the Metro Detroit area at one of its facilities. The events were a huge success and very popular. PREFIX also gave tours of the Trans Am engine program, custom build process, and engine performance program. This year, the events have been put on hold since the company is busier than ever. Including putting focus on winning the TA2 Trans-Am championship with the Stevens-Miller Racing #40 PREFIX Dodge Challenger, driven by Marc Miller.
Well now, PREFIX is hosting an informal car show and gathering inviting all types of transportation. The event is open to everyone. It’s an opportunity to help the company celebrate its 40th anniversary with the enthusiast community. The event will be held Saturday, September 28th at the company’s Auburn Hills facility located at 3500 Joslyn Road in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The event will start at 10:00 am and go until 2:00 pm.
The MoparInsiders staff will be on hand and you can guarantee that a lot of talent from FCA will be there as well with their rides. The events drew a lot of interesting vehicles last year and we don’t PREFIX will have some of their specialty vehicles on hand as well.
For more information and updates, you can check out the official Facebook page of the event. So if you are in the Metro Detroit area that weekend, it should be a good time for all. We will see you all there.
