As an automobile enthusiast’s haven, the M1 Concourse offers a unique blend of style and speed across its sprawling 87-acre property. This annual event has become a significant highlight for car enthusiasts, drawing crowds to celebrate North America’s largest automotive culture.
The WDS, presented by Comerica Bank, is a two-day extravaganza dedicated to showcasing a remarkable array of vehicles, with a particular focus on hot rods, customs, cruisers, and muscle cars. The event is set to take place on Friday, August 18th, and Saturday, August 19th, offering attendees a chance to immerse themselves in the world of automotive excellence.
The M1 Circuit, a 1.5-mile track at the heart of M1 Concourse, will serve as the backdrop for the Dream Show. Tomorrow, Friday, August 18th, the circuit will come alive with a dynamic display of hot rods, custom vehicles, cruisers, and muscle cars. Enthusiasts can explore the impressive lineup of over 650 show cars, neatly divided into 15 different classes.
