Autorama Baby! Last Year They Shut It Down After Day One Because Of Covid, But Now We’re Back!


Autorama Baby! Last Year They Shut It Down After Day One Because Of Covid, But Now We’re Back!

(Words and Photos by Scott Liggett) On the one year anniversary of Covid shutting down everything to “flatten the curve” we hit up the Omaha Autorama to get back into the reopening of car show season here in Nebraska. If you remember, we were at this show last year when everything was going crazy with the Covid virus running rampant. The governor of Nebraska called to have this show shut down the day we were there. It was a surreal experience last year and we were not able to go to another car show until October.

It’s a year later, Covid is getting under control. People are itching to get out and live again. The people who love classic and custom cars are no different. This year’s turn out was definitely proof of that. So, we donned our masks, grabbed our camera and headed down to CHI Heath Center in downtown Omaha, Nebraska to check out a bunch of beautiful automobiles.
This particular auto show has a lot of meaning to your author as this was the World of Wheels Omaha Autorama was the first custom car show I ever went to way back as a budding gearhead in the 1970’s. And, I continued to go to this show until the late 1980’s when my family moved to California. The Omaha Autorama officially kicks off the car show season in Nebraska, and we are hoping to go to a lot more this year. And, we will share those experiences with you here.
