The first Chicago World Of Wheels event was held at Navy Pier in the winter of 1962. This show was organized by the Gas Hoppers car club. It’s interesting to note that Don Schumacher, of Don Schumacher Racing, was a member of the Gas Hoppers at that time.
The World Of Wheels then moved to McCormick Place until that building was destroyed by fire in 1967. After the fire the show was moved to the Amphitheatre until 1972, when the World Of Wheels returned to the all new McCormick Place. At this time the show was organized by the Chi-Town Shifters. The show continued to be held annually at McCormick place until 2009. In 2010 the Donald E. Stephens convention center in Rosemont, IL became the new show home. The Chicago World Of Wheels continues to be held annually in Rosemont.
