The field is narrowed. Meet 2013's Great 8.

Our man on the scene has kept us well-ahead of the curve, feeding a steady stream of photos from the 2013 Detroit AutoRama... You've been treated to images of cars prior to the show floor opening to the public, and many a shot that only those setting up would be close enough to get.

Keeping this momentum alive, we have, hot in our folder, a glimpse of the Great 8 finalists for 2013. As we mentioned in the 2013 Detroit AutoRama set-up day pictures post, this is one VERY strong year indeed. And the Great 8 field shows this, as well as some pretty wild diversity. From radical show rods to concept car-quality, out-of-the-box thinking and design, this group has it all. Marquee shops to virtual unknowns, this is certainly a year for the record books on a number of levels. That said, let's meet the contestants.
