Although I post images on my website of all the car shows I go to, sometimes I send extended coverage to Hot Rod Hot Line (link left). Go to their website, click on "Car Shows", under "Roving Reporters" click on "Leal Brothers" located under Midwest and check them out.
(Spring, TX / Niftee 50ees) (Kemah, TX / Home Depot) (Pearland, TX / Lowe's) We are now at full stride covering Houston area car shows and cruise nights. We frequent the three cruise nights listed above and post images on our "RODDING" page. Pearland is on Fridays while Spring and Kemah are both on Saturday nights. Which one we cover depends on what local show we cover during the day.
Our 10-day "road trip" is over and I don't know where to start. We covered the Hot Rod Power Tour and the NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion and we visited the National Sprint Car Museum, the National Motorcycle Museum, the National Transport Museum and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. Total pictures taken was close to 3500. It'll take me awhile to sort and edit the images so I'll post as I go. The highly modified Dodge Dart above is powered by a turbocharged Honda engine (?). The Valiant panel wagon was participating at the Hot Rod Reunion. Lots more to come!
My brother loves '41 Willys' so he was looking forward to covering the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Needless to say, he (we) weren't disappointed (above).
I figured our Hot Rod Power Tour trip would go smooth due to the entire route being on Interstates. As you can see above, it was traffic and traffic enforcement.
I mentioned above that we took nearly 3500 pictures during our "road trip". I just did the math and we drove 3500 miles including the initial drive up to Kansas City (750) and our drive back home from Bowling Green (850). Not counting our home state of Texas, our trip took us through ten different states (above).
Before there was Pro Mods, WAY BEFORE there was Pro Mods, the "Outlaw" class was the nitro-burning Fuel Altereds; same powerplant as the Top Fuel Dragsters but with a shorter, much shorter wheelbase. Although there are currently Outlaw Altereds, their wheelbase is closer to a current Funny Car. Above are images taken at the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion of those original Fuel Altereds. They are "invited" and make exhibition runs during the event. Last time I saw these things run was in the late '60s at Orange County International Raceway in California.
