FLINT — Back to the Bricks and Buick will sponsor the upcoming annual winter indoor car show Chrome and Ice, which is set for Feb. 10-11 at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center in Flint. The theme for this year’s event is “MORE.” The 2017 Chrome and Ice event will be larger and more spectacular than ever before, featuring more than 100 vintage and classic sports cars, muscle cars, hot rods, and trucks, with live entertainment and special guests.
In keeping with the event’s theme, Chrome and Ice will feature more space, more cars, more vendors, more entertainment, and more people. Access to the entire facility in 2017 will enable organizers to showcase more than twice as many vehicles, and they expect to exceed 100 entries this year.
For the first time, those in attendance at Chrome and Ice 2017 will be able to vote for their favorite vehicle, one vote per adult paid entry ticket. Each of the top 25 vehicles (the “Electra 25”) will receive a $225 cash prize. All registrants will receive a personal license plate with the owner’s name and make/year of their car, one t-shirt, two VIP lanyards, and two catered lunches for Saturday.
There will be approximately 45 vendor stations available for spectators to visit, primarily automotive-related. They are going fast, so you’ll need to hurry if you want to secure a spot for your business. Contact Steve Hobson at 810-252-3344 as soon as possible if you are interested.
Chrome and Ice 2017 is featuring “open” registration for anyone who is interested in showing their vehicle. You can now register online, or if you prefer, you may download the registration form, fill it out, and submit via email, or print, complete, and submit by regular mail. Regardless of the method you choose, remember you must include a photo of the vehicle with your application. It’s not too late to be included. Selection will take place in early January.
