To kickoff the grassroots car show season in the Midwest, the design staff of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plans to host a cruise-in Sunday, June 4, on the top floors of the company’s parking structures in Auburn Hills, Michigan. And to make things especially interesting, the hosts will display several concept and show vehicles, including the Jeep Switchback, Ram Macho Power Wagon and Dodge Durango Shaker.

True to the cruise-in nature, there is no charge to display your car, and all makes and models and eras are welcome, FCA said in its news release. The event runs from 9 a.m. until noon and takes place on the rooftop of parking decks 20 and 21, so there will be room for as many as 600 vehicles to participate.

And, a Chrysler spokesperson added, if the rooftops fill, additional vehicles can be display on the ramps leading to the roofs, or even on lower levels of the parking structures.

Regarding the three Chrysler vehicles that are scheduled to participate, the Switchback in a concept designed with Mopar and Jeep Performance parts to be the ultimate off-roader, the Macho Power Wagon is a lifted heavy-duty pickup designed to go anywhere it can fit, and the Durango Shaker is a lowered (by three inches) three-row sport utility with a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 beneath a Shaker-style hood.
