This event introduces the latest in customization, tuning and in-car entertainment (ICE) trends to enthusiasts of all ages. See show quality compacts, modified trucks, SUVs and high-end luxury sedans, awesome tuner cars, resto-mod muscle cars, sleek sport bikes and much more.
The latest trend in the automotive hobby industry is modifying stock luxury sedans (like a Mercedes CL55) or high-end SUVs (maybe a Lincoln Navigator, a Range Rover or a Cadillac Escalade). Even Old School '60s rides like Impalas or Buick Regals are likely targets for these new alterations. The customizations can be anything from a pair of oversized custom wheels, tires and trim, to a total interior makeover, which includes ICE (in-car entertainment), maybe upgrading to a superior sound system to adding several TV monitors in the headrests with DVD input. These modified upgrades can range in price from a few hundred dollars for a rim or wheel to a total ride renovation of $50,000 or more.
'Our inaugural show is not just new to Carlisle Events, but is in fact a new market segment taking the automotive-hobbyist marketplace by storm,' John Detrick, Carlisle Events CEO. 'Everywhere I look, I'm seeing aftermarket alterations being made to cars.
Over the past 10 years, it was mainly our younger audiences making modifications to compacts, but now we're seeing this same audience…maturing a few years…and their parents tuning high-end luxuries, euros and SUVs. It's really been a remarkable transition in the hobby.'
