    Draw a line in the snow and shake off the winter blues!! HAMB on the ROCKS for 2011 is set. The day will begin Saturday, January 15th 2011 at 11:30 am when we will meet at the Tilted Kilt in Rockford for lunch. From there (around 1:30 or so) we will travel to Hopperstad Customs in Belvidere for an open house.

    Tilted Kilt (Clock Tower Resort)
    7801 East State Street
    Rockford, IL 61108

    Hopperstad Customs
    6860 Imron Drive
    Belvidere, IL 61008

    This will be the 3rd year for HAMB on the ROCKS and will be the 2nd year since it became a once-a-year event. We had a huge turn out last year where everyone enjoyed lunch and the open house at Hopperstad's. After the meet, Kerry said we should do it again next year so here we are.

    The Tilted Kilt in Rockford is located inside the Clocktower Resort right off I-39 so it's easy to get to. From there, it's just 5 or 6 minutes East to Hopperstad's. We've been to the Tilted Kilt a couple times and the food has always been great, plus they have a complete bar for those who tend to lean toward libations.

    Hopperstad Customs always has lots of cool projects and stuff to look at. This year we might see projects such as a right hand drive Aussie Ute, a chopped, channeled, and stretched 34 truck, a belly tanker, an old 32 race car, and even a few street rods.

    I look forward to seeing all of you there snow or shine! Reply to this post so I can get an idea of how many kilts will be tilted. Thanks!
