    In 1939 a man by the name of J.R. Swickard lead a charge to form a new State by hacking off parts of Wyo, Mt, and SD and reclaiming the old Indian land of Absaroka as the 49th State! They went as far as making license plates and crowning a Miss Absaroka... So we honor that rebellious spirit and invite you to The Absaroka State Takeover Traditional Hot Rod & Kustom Gathering.

    Just noticed something. There would have been two towns named Buffalo, Absaroka.

    Hey everybody. Stutz has put in a lot of brainstorming time and effort into this show. you all know first year shows are hard to do. come support him and his buddies putting this thing together. get your heap back in the garage, lube it up, change the oil, throw on a new set of tires, and HIT THE ROAD!
    either that. or be trampeled by "buffeli" xoxo

    I had forgot all about this since my country school days !
     
  16. Thanks Doll... I hope to see everyone who can come there.
     
  17. Dude, I'd love to make it .......but that's like 600 miles for me. Sounds like fun though, how soon do you need a head count? Pre- registration only or can we just show up? Might be a last minute thing for me...
     
  18. The preregistration is so we get a grasp on the number of cars, and participant Shirts, ect.... the location (cool as it is) is only lending so much space that we can control to keep the cars together. If you just show up, you never know, things can be worked out. And it would be worth it even if you didnt enter your car. If more cars show up, we do have alot of space to put them.
     
  19. Sorry man, gotta choose my time off wisely this year. Bonneville is taking some and our alternating schedule has me working that weekend.
     
  20. Bummer, send the rest of them Sodaks over.
     
  21. Anyone planning on coming yet?

    I took a picture of a Absaroka plate today, when I was in Gillette to see my brother. Short trip to drop some stuff off, but I am glad I remembered to get a photo

    The plate is sweet Stutz. Is you brother going to bring it to the show? Just the history behind the name is cool.
     
  29. Yeah, I'm sure he will. He'll prolly bring a shit load of plates.
