The O'Reilly Auto Parts AutoRama, a Thanksgiving tradition for car nuts, opens Thursday afternoon and shuts down Sunday night. GAP's Tim Palazzolo said Stampede sports a carbon fiber front end, Ford's legendary Boss 429 V8 that displaces 572 cubic inches and produces more than 900 horsepower and rolls on custom-designed 20-inch wheels. Hobbyists, tinkerers and restorers can also find parts, wheels, tires, tools and auto memorabilia at the swap meet and toy show. On Friday, an "outdoor AutoRama" cruise-in along the south end of the GRB is set for 10 a.m. Summit Racing is supporting the return of legendary hot-rod builder Gene Winfield. Visitors will also have an opportunity to meet entertainment celebrities such as former WWE champion and superstar Daniel Bryan or sitcom star Laura Marano, who portrays songwriter Ally Dawson in Disney Channel's "Austin & Ally." Palazzolo caught the car bug from his dad George, who started an auto shop that evolved into GAP Racing. Since I was a kid, we would make our way down to the show right after Thanksgiving dinner or lunch, since it was always scheduled around the opening of the show.
