SWMO Hot Rod Hundred Preview

Last October, Quentin Brown, Curtis Green, Dick Craig, and I took off on a “Route Scout”, so that I could get some feedback from them on the route that I had chosen. I had pretty much already settled on this route, as my choice, but wanted to make sure that it had enough “cool” in it to be fun, and that there were enough stopping spots for folks to take cool pictures and enjoy themselves.

Saturday, we will be hitting the same route, but with between 50 and 60 cars, expected. Looking forward to it!

Hot Rod Hundred – Phoenix Style

Last weekend, on April 12, the very first “Hot Rod Hundred” was launched. The event was hosted by Doug Varner and he enlisted the help of Jay Joyce, to come over from California to help with the logistics and serve as the event photographer.

I’ll go back through the photo gallery and update the captions with the ones that Jay included, when he posted these in a thread on the HAMB.

Well, I’ve loaded a few of the over 400 pictures I took. If you want you can go to my albums to see more. I want to give a little play by play on the day if I can……

Then it happened..... The steamed Crab incident! A story for another time...

user53423_pic512677_1397422156

Once we knew It couldn't be fixed on the side of the road. We had to move on. Thank you so much to all who were involved in getting our brothers car back home. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

user53423_pic512674_1397422156

We got back on the road after the little delay. Decided to skip the DQ stop and head for the finish!

user53423_pic512667_1397420766

A HOT ROD HUNDRED LATER! We pulled into GreaseWood Flats!

Thanks, Doug and Jay, for launching the Hot Rod Hundred series. Our Southwest MO event is in 5 days, and I’m still scrambling to get everything together here.

(btw, yes, I know that there are post ’48 vehicles in the pictures, but as I stated before, the Hot Rod Hundred events are ones that I am participating in, as an organizer, and I am making an exception to my standards)

Enjoy the show. (I’m also trying out a new slideshow plugin)

Oh…and if you wanna participate in the SWMO Hot Rod Hundred, here’s the info page. Either Paypal your entry fee to hotrodhundred@streetrodder.net, or show up with your cash, check or charge at the American Legion Post on Saturday.
