Extreme customized versions of sport to luxury models will be ondisplay at the Urban Restyln' Salon WASHINGTON, D. C. - After making a major splash at last year's show, Automotive Rhythms is back for a return engagement at The Washington Auto Show®: "Presenting Advanced Technologies." Like last year's highly successful appearance, the Automotive Rhythms Urban Restyln' Salon will once again be ground zero for the hottest, hippest hardware, software, accessories, trends and designs for customizing your car. The stash of flipped vehicles will cover twice the area it did at the 2006 show and includes the lavish 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV with STRUT luxury grille package and Rennen rims wrapped in Hankook rubber and Maybachs sitting on chrome. Get ready to roll by checking out custom models from Audi, Buick, Verizon Wireless, Scion, Volvo, Downtown Locker Room, Infiniti and Chevy - even limos with custom Lamborghini styled doors. In addition to exciting live musical performances, celebrities, fashion displays, an old school garage full of classics and prizes like XM Satellite Radio units, Bose headphones and audio players and model cars from Jada Toys, be sure to keep up with the Harley-Davidson® Custom Bike Build: Install-Tainment. Each day of the show, technicians will be working to create a fully customized 2007 H-D® Harley-Davidson® motorcycle right before your eyes. Make no mistake - this will be like no other bike you've ever seen. On Thurs., Jan. 25, the much-anticipated annual "Flip My Whip" contest, $10,000 worth of customizations to the winner's car, will be unveiled at The Salon. This promotion, with WPGC, Big Boys Toys, Revision Auto, Hankook Tires, Rennen Luxury Wheels and JL Audio, will be launched at the show with a WPGC Remote from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Automotive Rhythms will create non-stop excitement at the auto show with Shell gas giveaways, dozens of custom cars (including exotics), custom motorcycles, performances by national recording artists and tunes spun by XM disc jockeys. Visitors will also enjoy a customer lounge, fashion show by Sneaker Suite and Downtown Locker Room, contests and $20,000 in giveaways provided by Bose, Jada Toys, XM Satellite Radio, JL Audio and others. Top it off by getting an autograph from cover model Ahni Luv, the Washington Wizards' Antawn Jamison and watching contenders for a Top Model competition hosted by America's Next Top Model Danielle Evans and WKYS 93.9 DJ Jeannie Jones.
