    Killer day in Oakford, PA. Thanks to Scott and The Professor. Great day. Great cars. The best people. Fantastic music on two stages. I am sure the after dark scene will be great but we hit the road before the vampires came out. Ran into Hot Rod Jen, Spike, Christine, Jack Thomas, Eddie and Lyle. Jay and his family. I saw Cousin Brucie but he was on a mission so I didn’t get to talk. And my favorite folks from Jersey. Dave, Cowboy Vinnie and Teddy P. But the real cool thing was having Model A Keith and his wife Dorothy who were on holiday from England join Sherri and I for a very cool road trip.

    I thought there was less to see and do than last year. Guess the weather scared some off and flooding stoped others. My friend almos shit when they asked him for $20 to get in and he was only a pass. I guess that is why I saw people doing U-turns at the gate.

    Some cool cars there. I like the radically altered hemi coupe.
     
  9. Another fun time at the Hoedown, lots of cool cars, the rain held off, and got to hang out with a bunch of HAMBers. Thanks to the Professor, Scott, and the crew.
     
  10. Any more pics/info on the red F1? It's great!

    Too many rat rods and a $20 entrance fee, this show is going down hill.
     
  13. Nice! Thanks for sharing.

  14. Seriously Mark, why don't you say what you really think!
     
  15. Mark, if you were watching when you came in there was a sign that said the HRHD was the "ratrod nationals", people don't go to that show to look at muscle cars or goldchainer street rods.....but I agree that $20/person is way to steep for that show. A friend came with his wife and was really unhappy, aka pissed, that he had to pay $40.00 to get in.
     
  16. Back in '04 and '05 it was $10 for the day and the car show. then the music at night was another $10, so all in all the price haven't gone up in 6-7 years. It was back in the Kahuna days where the owners of Kahunaville paid for the music, but today the Professor probably have to pay for everything and to make it easier on himself I guess he decided to have one price for the whole Saturday instead of splitting it up. I guess it sucks if you don't wanna see the music, but then again 8 bands (according to the flyer) and one of them from out of the country, can't be cheap! It might just be me, but I think it's a fair price and I miss the days where I could just take a drive on a weekend in September, and enjoy good company, nice cars,cool people and some rockin' tunes to top it all off.
    Keep up the good work Professor!

    I am sure there were lots like me that didn't spend 5 min with the bands. $10 to get in and have the bands in a different area and charge extra to get in there would have been better. $20 and not even a "bag". Maybe an extra $5 for my passanger ok. We drove too far to turn around at the gate.

    It was worth the 30.00 ( vendor charge ) just to have an audience with Cuzin Brucie....

    Thank you Bubba.

    The only reason I go is to meet with friends and to see the HAMB friendly cars.

    I sure as hell wouldn't drive as far as many who attended, this show is 10 minutes from my house.

    always got to be some people that complain .
    the professor works his tail off for this show. the prices were listed on the hoedowns website . $20 isnt bad for what the show is the insurance alone i bet is a pretty penny from what i saw running around painting and going up and down the hill there were plenty of non "rat rod" cars there which i bet out numbered the rat rods . the show has always been about the cars and the music ! just like the road agents show was and a specator had to pay $18 or $20 i forget and that show was smaller . if you dont want to pay extra for going to a show with bands theres plenty of them out there . im happy this show is around i have a good time at it maybe thats because i dig the music, cars and seeing people i only get to see once a year and meeting new people like mr j and joe sulpy that made the show for me meeting the both of them .
    thank you Hotrod Hoedown

    Thanks HRJen. Hey I understand the deal. Money is money. But it must cost a big dime to put on a TWO day show with Non-stop music. And it’s vital that folks keep coming to ANY show. I plan all my free time around going to SHOWS. Some are free and well ya gotta pay for some. And as far as the rr issue. Do what I do. Keep walking, cause you will see BAD ASS stuff like this for sure. See ya at a show soon. Slim

    Agreed......

    Thats why I stay away, in just sayin..

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! This was a joke, right??

    The road agents show may have been smaller, but the quality of the cars at the HRSD dont compare..I'll pay a little extra any day for top quality, i.e Lead East..

    Aw, Steve......the honor was all mine.....I just wish you had something to sell that I couldn't live without! All I need is this damn gas tank for my Fiddy One Victrola to arrive so I can wreck my back installing it........I'm so old......

    It was, indeed, a pleasure to see you and shoot the shit awhile, BigDaddy.....always is....
