Hot Rods Caught in the rain with my roadster!

  1. I, too was at the Detroit Street Rod Nationals in 1972. Yes, it rained, and it had a hail storm too. I saw many cars that had hail damage at the show.

    Street Machine Nationals - Springfield, MO 2014. Check it out, the old hot rod still had on its HAMB Drags number from a month earlier! LOL. Not one of my most favorite times nor ride home but one of my favorite photos!

  4. Yup, did that in the Rocky 33, only it was cold out and all the water ran down the inside of my goretex shell!
     
  5. I was at Louisville in '92 with all the rain falling so fast it swept up paper and trash and clogged the drains, I was driving my '40 sedan and fortunately we were close enough to move the car to higher ground before it flooded the engine.

    That was a experience I will never forget. HRP

  6. I remember at least one good "remember when" threads on here about that day!
