    that just flat looks like fun. I try to go up and watch the Maryhill Hill climb at Maryhill, Wa. every fall that runs on the first stretch of paved road in the state of Washington and I really enjoy watching.

    What an awesome event! Absolutely fantastic! I can't stop thinking how this is what it's all about.... I wish we had something like this in Australia, no matter where. I'd be there!

    Thanks for the pics and video. Much appreciated!

    Some really spot on cars! Love the 3 window '36.

    Feel free to get in touch, I will help where I can.

    Hey Danny
    As keith said the hot rod/flathead class only runs at the May event at this venue but they also run at the Prescott hill climb later in the year around October time. Of course there are the Nostalgia Nationals and the Hot Rod Drags events aswell as the Hayride. I'm sure you would enjoy any of them.

    It is indeed. Owned by 'biggles' on here. More info on this thread...
