yep - they are here - Did you take your ride out on the track at Vintage Torque Fest in 2011.....?
well - you should have one of these. It is owed to you - because YOU were willing to get out there and hit the track....no one else gets one. We know who you are - we have the video and the insurance waivers......so get in touch with us and we will get you the goods.
If you plan on attending Good Guys car show in Des Moines this week - stop by our booth and we will give one to you then.
Thanks again and hope that all the drivers that took their rides out in 2011 will do it again in 2012.

You gotta know....I had a motorcycle at the age of 6. I rode all through my teen years......and then I met my current wife and we had a friend that lost both his legs in a motorcycle crash.
That freaked us out so much that we said no bikes til the kids are outta the house.
Understood.....this only helped the car infatuation to take hold more.
SO I know there are some of the people out there that don't think the car guys and the bike guys can coexist at the same show.....but I think we did a pretty good job this past year and bottom line - the guys that are bringing the hot rods and the bikes BOTH have the same do it yourself mentality..........
so even though one group may listen to heavier music....and the other group may tend to wear the hair slicked back...in the end we all have a love for this think called the internal combustion engine and THAT is what we will keep us together.
There are already enough "powers that be" out there trying to divide us. Respect for what each group does is evident at Torque Fest and at Cycle Source magazine.....(as seen in the article that was written in the current issue)
The crew that rolled in obviously had a good time and we can't wait for them to come back in May of 2012.
GO BUY THIS MAGAZINE! Available at Borders and Barnes and Noble etc....
Get a feel for what the younger guys are building - you may just get hooked.
Chris Callen - THANK YOU....I will tell ya again in person.

Not really sure where to start.....the mother of ALL hot rod magazines.......HOT ROD just gave us a couple of pages in the new issue. Speechless, stunned, floored are just some of the words that come to mind. I have to thanks Josh Kurpius for being such a great guy over all the years I have known him. I know without his lead this most likely would not have happened. He and Matt King (from HOG magazine) rode to our show and took some pix and had a good time. Matt knows some of the guys over at Hot Rod and I am not sure if it was David Freiburger or Rob Kinnan or who.....but THANK YOU.
