ididit Car Show & Open House
Thank you attendees!
Every year, on the first Saturday in October, ididit invites car guys and gals from all over Michigan and beyond (including you Canada) to gather at the ididit facility for a day of fun, entertainment and the opportunity to enjoy the hot rodding life.
The ididit Car Show & Open House was created in 1991 as a way to thank customers for all their support and for one last hurrah before having to tuck our hot rods away for the winter. The first show was a huge success and has been growing in popularity ever since.
The show offers a chance for the public to tour the ididit facility and to see who we are and what we are all about. The ididit Car Show & Open House is a free event, held rain or shine and is open to vehicles from 1979 or older. Goodie bags are given away to the first 500 registered participants as well as great door prizes donated from some of the biggest companies in the industry. ididit even gives away a steering column gift certificate to one lucky registrant at the awards presentation. Did we mention awards? Every year, 7 beautiful vehicles drive away with the coveted ididit Pro’s Pick Award awarded by guest judges who pick the best in class (out of 7 different categories). Plus, if you think you’ve traveled the farthest to get to the show, you can enter for the chance to win the ididit Long Distance Award. NSRA officials are even on hand for free safety inspections, to ensure your rod is in tip top shape.
The 2016 ididit Car Show & Open House will be held on Saturday, October 1st and it's gonna be big! Pre-register by September 23rd or register the day of the show (registration closes at noon.) We have loads in store this year to help celebrate ididit's 30th Anniversary. We'll have a special Michigan vendor area with some of the best names in our industry, from Classic Instruments to Woodward Fab and many more! The crew from Masters Entertainment will be on location shooting an episode of the “Dustless Blasting Car Show" which will air on MAVTV & REV'N networks. Plus the State of Michigan's shop local campaign "Buy Nearby" is holding their yearly weekend celebration with great deals at some of our unique downtown Tecumseh shops. And once again the Lenawee Humane Society will be raffling off a custom golf cart and will announce the winner at our car show (during the ididit Awards Presentation.) You can purchase your raffle tickets in our showroom or at the Lenawee Humane Society. Tickets are $5 each, 5 for $20, 15 for $40. 100% of the proceeds benefit the Lenawee Humane Society. While you're here, be sure to tour our charming little town of Tecumseh. Indulge in shopping, antiquing, dining, and whatever else tickles your fancy.
Winter Seminar Series
Every winter, ididit invites representatives from some of the top companies in our industry to come to our shop in Tecumseh, MI and educate our customers on the latest products, trends and technology. The ididit winter seminar series was created over 10 years ago as a way to educate buyers to ensure they were getting the right parts for their projects. Over the years, ididit noticed that their customers didn’t always have all the valuable information they needed when buying the various parts for their cars. Since ididit cares about their customers, they thought what better way to educate not only our customers, but also ourselves, than by inviting those companies to come to ididit and speak with the customer directly. Giving them the opportunity to openly discuss their products in detail, the best installation practices and various tips and tricks of the trade, while allowing the customer to ask questions and see the products firsthand.
Each year on a Saturday, ididit hosts 3, four hour long seminars which allows our attendees to get out of the Michigan winter cold and into the ididit facility for some much needed cabin fever relief, a warm catered lunch and the opportunity for a great learning experience. All with the added bonus of catching up with their car buddies while getting geared up and ready to take on their projects in the upcoming car season.

"GET WIRED!": Once you determine the direction you want to go with your ride, you'll need to choose a wiring system that best suits it. A stock restoration, a resto-mod, a street rod, or a radical custom all have different wiring solutions available to them. Wiring is something you only want to do once and this seminar, presented by Michael Manning, will help you arm yourself with the knowledge you’ll need to choose the right system!
