Event Coverage Hot Rod Hill Climb (CO) hits the road to Race Of Gentlemen (NJ) !

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Barn Find T, Oct 1, 2013.

  1. One year ago Mel pulled off an event that raised the bar and inspired the hot rod world. In fact it was this event that inspired me to trudge the trail that became 'Hot Rod Hill Climb'. I message'd Mel, told him about this idea I had brewed up to recreate the historic 1953 Hot Rod Hill Climb in Georgetown Colorado. Not believing I could pull it off with the same impact of ROG, I tried to get Mel onboard to master the event. He encouraged me to ask the questions and sell the town on my idea. And before long I had an event on the calendar. Mel's support and pep talks were instrumental to get the HRHC ball rolling.

    So, as it should be I'm on the road to NJ today with the Hot Rod Hill Climb '32 coupe in tow to celebrate, participate, and support ROG!


    And to make it even better, my pal Scott McCann of DeLuxe Speed Shop is coming too!


    Look for us on the road, & see you on the beach!

    Hope you boys have a great trip, by the way I'm not sure if Scott knows but there is a small clip of him and his son blasting along the salt in Bonneville this year filmed by hotrod TV on the last episode of Roadkill on you tube...
