Ad for the 1981 Custom Car Show
Mobile Press Register
In the 1980's, everyone in Mobile worshiped cars. Once a year, the faithful would pilgrimage to the Municipal Auditorium to pay respects to cars and celebrities of the latest vintage.
Sure, by the 1980's, federal laws had stripped cars of any muscle power, but that only made styling that much more important. Paint jobs, decals, pipes, louvers, spoilers, wings, and even campers, helped us compensate for the diminished power under the hood. And what better place to catch up on the latest styling trends than the annual Custom Car Show?
