This year's Billetproof Michigan moved to Ypsilanti's lovely Riverside Park, and the new setting brought out some gorgeous rides from all over. It's an onslaught of awesome, billet-free hot rods below.
The rules for Billetproof, run by the same miscreants who brought you the Concours d'Lemons, are very simple: 1964 and older, no billet anything, no modern wheels, no fenderless cars with independent front suspension.
Billetproof is one of our favorite series of car shows, highlighting vintage-style hot rodding, various elements of car culture, and taking itself none-too-seriously. This beautiful gallery of photos is a peek at Billetproof Texas.
Billetproof wasn't the only Detroit-area car show this weekend, we also popped over to Ypsilanti's Orphan Car Show, where we found the only car to make an appearance at both shows — Wilt Chamberlain's 1967 Ghia.
