Hot Rod Power Tour 2015: Day Four

The fourth day of the Hot Rod Power Tour turned out to be a very awesome day. We had gorgeous views while cutting through the farmlands, burnout world records, racing and heat that would melt the tar off of the road. That last part may have included a touch of sarcasm, but oh well. Everything was awesome today until we got to the event. There, we searched all over for even the … [Read more...]

Hot Rod Power Tour 2015: Day Three

The official third day of the Hot Rod Power Tour 2015 is over. We took a trip down historic Route 66 and through endless cornfields. I moved from Illinois a few years back and forgot just how much corn there is in the Prairie State. Although you may think field after field of corn would be boring, it isn’t when you’re in the middle of a couple thousand hot rods. Every … [Read more...]

Hot Rod Power Tour 2015: Day Two

The first leg of the Power Tour showed to be very eventful just like the first leg always is. 59 South was clogged up with the HRPT cars, the Heidts stop was clogged, and the list goes on. Fortunately, everybody got on the road and then made it to safety before the storm hit. We’ve heard of a few stragglers, but it seems that everybody has made it! Each day the tour never fails … [Read more...]

A Day at the Goodguys 33rd All American Get-Together in Pleasanton

by Tony Huntimer It was Saturday March 28th at the Goodguys 33rd All American Get-Together held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA. I had been hearing commercials on the radio. Somebody also told me that they had seen a Goodguys advertisement on TV. I don't know if this is normal, but something Goodguys did really worked. The turnout at the show was massive … [Read more...]

Goodguys 33rd All American Get-Together at Pleasanton

Had a buddy ask me if I'd tow a car down to the Goodguys show this weekend in Pleasanton.

We arrived around 8 am and the place was PACKED! I was there a couple years ago and it was busy, but this year the word was out, … [Read more...]

The Street Machine And Muscle Car Nationals in Pomona, CA has quickly become one of our favorite shows. We were there last year for the first year, and had high hopes for this year. The event was held at the Fairplex which is the same grounds as the famous NHRA drag strip and home of the NHRA museum. This show is what I would consider a "new school" show. What I mean by … [Read more...]
