The BELOIT AUTORAMA has grown from it's first show in 1977 with 130 show cars to become one of the largest automotive one day events in the Midwest. Over 1200 cars in the classes of Street Rod, Custom, Corvette, Antique, Classic, Truck, 55-64 full size Chevrolets, High Performance 1949-1970, High Performance 1971-Present, and Imports are expected at this years show. The cars in each class are parked as a group together so people attending the show can see their favorite vintage vehicles in the same area. The parts swap, flea market and arts and craft area feature over 250 vendor spaces where that special car part or collectible item can be found. Also, the car corral area features over 120 classic and performance cars which are for sale.
Special hand crafted clock trophies are the highlight of the show and presented to all car classes. These works of art are not seen at any other car shows and are prized possessions of the show car people. A value of many thousands of dollars would have to be put on the trophies if they were to be purchased.
The BELOIT AUTORAMA is a fund raising project for the Beloit Evening Lions Club. The Coachmen Street Rodders, Blue Ribbon Classic Chevy Club, and Cranked Inc. completely donate their time and efforts in helping to present the show. Over $835,000.00 has been raised from the past 41 Autorama's. The Lions Club has donated these proceeds to the Lions Club International Foundation, The Wisconsin Lions Club Foundation which supports The Wisconsin Lions Camp for use by the visually handicapped, Beloit Boys & Girls Club, Meals on Wheels, Caritas, Easter Seals Camp, Hospice and other community projects.
