Terrific photos! Thanks for the huge efforts, and showing me a lot of stuff I missed!
Thanks for sharing,great pics.
Chris I'm gonna be sad when your truck gets done! You won't have time to take such great pictures because everyone is going to be swarming around it all day. hehe. Thanks again for the great camera work and it was good to see you and your better half.
Thanks for the coverage. Love the swap meet and spectator photos too!
This ride was too bad ass and sounded like it would rip your head off!
Jus' plain bad ass!!!
Hunnert Car Pile Up is the baddest traditional show on the planet and will be missed by all gearheads!!! I really pray they find another spot and carry on the tradition....i will go natter where they have it!!!
I'll be honest with you, seeing cars parked is fine but, it was even better standing by the car intake gate watching them in motion.
I think if the Hunnert Car Heads Up even partially takes the place of the Pile-Up, it will be even better. Cars are meant to be driven and look so much cooler in motion.
We'll see what happens!
Thanks for coming... and for all the photos!
Wow, great coverage!!!
You should have been there while we were setting up on Friday. I think that's all I can say about that! Anyway, that's FalfasNightmare's car. He and the other Fugitives put on the Meltdown Drags at Byron (July 21), part of the (Hunnert Car) Heads Up-Meltdown Drag Series.
Bloody hell, you lot approve of these? Stop the insanity ! Looks like hard work and an overall great event but why are these being welcomed in to long running respected events?
I agree. There is nothing traditional about these things. Certainly when I was a kid there was nothing like this around. Should be banned!
Wow! Thanks for spending the time and putting in the effort to share 944 pics with us!
It was an Epic Show!! Thanks for sharing these awesome photos and MANY MANY THANKS to DW and the Chrome Czars for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the pics! That is a really great look at the show from all aspects.
Absolutely. The Pileup has always been about driving your car, whether it gets in or not. Union Grove is in the middle of nowhere, and is a historic track, so the driving is a must! I had a couple people tell me that their car isn't fast, so why bother. I can understand that. But there are plenty of cars that come that aren't fast by any stretch, and the owners match up with similar cars. If you're racing another 17 second car, suddenly it's a whole different ball game!
Retribution, an incredible amount of time and effort on your part to take and post. Thanks for your effort.
sweet pic thanks............................lol
Great coverage! I was there & didn't see some of these you have pictured.
One of these cars was like 3rd in the gate in the mourning!
Hey - I seem to recall some NON traditional stuff at Hot Rod Hayride.
and you find 2 cars out of 944 pix?
Before people bitch and moan about cars that are in OTHER peoples shows.....why do you not go ahead and volunteer at the gate instead of complaining............
not sure you have seen ALL the positive comments on the show.
It seems the people that were actually AT the show just kept on walking past the stuff that they did not like.
AND there were things that snuck in - I witnessed personally 1 truck come in the back entrance about 230 pm
why is it that certain shows get a pass but other shows get hammered for letting in "non trad" cars?
Viva, Lonestar, Long Beach Motorama - no one ever talks about those shows letting in "non trad" cars.
guess haters are always gonna hate
I finally made it to the Pileup this year! It was a kickass show with many nice cars. Thanks to all those who worked so hard to make it happen.
I never waited in line to get a t-Shirt at a car show before. That kind of shows the cool factor of the show. Way to go out with a bang fella's!
Thank you for taking the time to take the pictures and post them.
Thanks for sharing ALL those cool pics.Looked like a good turnout
Thank you for all the great pics! I was surprised to see 2 bubble cars, those are just awesome! The atomic punk was one of my all time favorites!
I want a Bubble Top--love these
Thank you, thank you, thankyou!
I've been a little underinspired lately....
Other's coverage showed all of the 'stand out' cars, but quite a few of the 'slightly background' cars in your coverage are sending me straight out to the garage!
See you later!!!!
Great Photos, glad to have been a part!
My dad and I knew Mike Marinoff. Cool guy! His shop used to be in Oak Creek WI. on Rawson ave.
I'm really digging the bubble top and the orange "T".
Thank you for the awesome pics, I know you have a lot of time into taking and uploading these.
