Good-Bye


For the last 47 years Car Shows and Auto-Rama has been a major part of my life, either as a spectator, participant, show chairman or producer. My business partner, Warren Bookman and I, have decided to move on and sell the Cleveland Rod & Custom Auto-Rama to the IX center Auto-Rama LLC.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you that have been part of Auto-Rama by helping us put on one of the greatest ISCA events. Thank You, previous participants, vendors and spectators. I will miss the friendships we have made. I will cherish the memories from the past years.


My family has always been supportive and I could not have run a show of Auto-Rama's magnitude without them. Thank You Lee, Mickey, Eric, Jennifer & Matthew. As well my friends who have been a part of the team for many years, Tom Plotz, Emil Gasper, Bob Coyne, Joe Venorsky, Jim Smith, Stosh & Weiner, Steve Erstrin, Becki Stokes, Helen Blazanin, Ronnie Quinn, Jerry Santora & Mike Urda.


All staff members past and present have made sacrifices for the show. Your love and devotion is what made our family reunion and the event one of the greatest shows in the country.
     Yours Truly,
     Ron Heitman
