Event Coverage Hot Rods? ... in the tiny town of Big Horn, in the State of 'Absaroka'?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Stutz, Aug 22, 2010.

  1. Saturday, August 21st 2010, was a hot day. the kinda hot that you cant get comfortable no matter what you do. But that is my only complaint, because the heat aside, the Absaroka State Takeover happened... and it was great.

    The Absaroka State Takeover.

    The Moonshiners C.C. did a great job (thanks guys)

    44 cars, and some just hangin around. The band was great and the beer was cold.

    With help from the Lovely Miss Absaroka, the Event was a success.

    Enough talk... (still to hungover to think straight) Heres some photos

    Thanks for the pics Stutz...

    Looks like a great time with good people
     
  11. Looks like a fun time. Great mix of cars and a laid-back atmosphere. Who wouldn't like a '56 p/u with a blown hemi and that coe with the S-10 bed is outrageous! Thanks for posting the pics and keeping the history alive.
     
  12. Great event!

    Thanks Stutz and everyone else who helped put this event on, I know alot of time (months) and hassle goes into it... Just so some guys like us can show up and enjoy ourselves

    We will be back for next years show, great low key event.

    I'll post some pics later
     
  13. Looks like fun! Wish it were a little closer....I really dig that sweptline Dodge pickup
     
  14. man, its nice to hear from everyone that liked the event. I talked to several people that said the atmosphere was a really happy, relaxed vibe, and that makes all the work worth it.

  25. The Next Trophy was fairly important to the Moonshiners. I take pride in knowing and honoring our predecessors. So our pick was fairly obvious...
