For the past decade, Mike Alexander perpetuated the Alexander Brothers legacy through the Alexander Brothers Award at the annual Detroit Autorama. The award recognizes car craftsmen who share Mike and Larry's vision of what a hot rod should be:

CLEAN + NEAT

Since Mike’s passing in 2014, his family has continued to celebrate the hot rod tradition through the award. They are proud to advance the art of car customization in the spirit of the Alexander Brothers.


Winners of the Alexander Brothers Award showcase progressive design emulating Mike and Larry's minimal aesthetic. The winner of the Alexander Brothers Award will be announced at the Sunday award ceremony.


To be eligible to win, the car must be shown exclusively at the Detroit Autorama.
