When factoring in the ingredients for the upcoming O’Reilly Auto Parts AutoRama Event, you get the feeling that anything could happen. Confirmed on the bill: a professional wrestler, a Disney Channel star, a pair of real Batmobiles, a monster truck and stunt-performing street bikes. Yeah, it’s quite possible that things will get crazy from Friday through Sunday at the Dallas Market Hall (2200 N. Stemmons Freeway). Consider it an American celebration of the finer things in life: drag racing, car restoration, clamoring mufflers, auto care and Batman. You, the car-savvy attendee, get classes and instructional panels on proper vehicular polishing and headlight restoration. So if your 1995 Mustang has some fog in the lamps, you can buff it right out. Also in attendance will be former WWE wrestler “The Edge” and Davis Cleveland from the Disney Channel’s Shake it Up. Also, a little monster truck known as Bigfoot will be crushing the lesser cars, no big deal. There is so much going on at AutoRama that the event is spaced across three full days of burning gasoline and melting tires. Tickets are $13 for adults and $4 for children 6 to 12, and can be purchased at any O’Reilly Auto Parts or online at the event’s website at autorama.com. Come out and get your ’Murica on, because what’s more bald eagle than hot rods and wrestling? Oh yeah, monster trucks and street bikes.
