    Sam - your art is always cool man! Thanks for all your help over the years - it is truly appreciated. For those that don't know - not only is this guy a talented artist, he also heads up the Tin Butchers Swap meet at our shows!

    This ride has a twin sister that resides in LA. It makes the good runs in Austin, like the LonestarRoundup and the REVOLUTION. A real survivor.

    we have no problem with putting a for sale sign on your ride - in fact there are a lot of cars that get sold at our shows.......... We allow all cars to be a part of the show, but we do have segregated parking. If your ride doesn't quite meet entry guidelines then everyone will see your ride in the friends parking area

    National M!otorcycle Museum always digs out some really cool stuff from their archives to bring to the show! If you are ever on the east side of Iowa - it is worth checking out. In Anamosa IA

    SMITTY TO THE RESCUE! Fellow gearhead Smitty, is going to let anyone that wants to camp an RV, vintage camper, or primitive camping, have access to his 3 acres. There is some electric available and this will be for both Friday and Saturday night. Smitty is already organizing a caravan to and from the show and pre party. He has about 25 spots available (perhaps more if your spot is small) Please do NOT call him before 830 am or after 830pm. His spot is north on 47. It is 15 minutes from the fairgrounds. Donations to Smitty can be ironed out with him directly. Iron Invasion is posting this as a courtesy and has nothing to do with this camping area or how it is managed. For details call Smitty at 815-790-3274

    Seems people are losing sight of WHY we do the Iron Invasion.... Proceeds from the gate go to Helping Hannahs Heart Foundation. This is a 501(c)3 non profit designed to help families with kids that have congenital heart defects. We hope y...ou will join us on Oct 4 as we present The Essl family with some much needed financial support. They have had some major surgery over the past few months and it's time we try to help them out as best we can. It is only a $10 entry to Iron Invasion and this entry automatically gets you 1 ticket to win the Harley-Davidson Ironhead Giveaway Custom Chopper. So not only are you going to be helping a great cause....you also get a chance to win a cool motorcycle. Rain or Shine! McHenry County Fairgrounds in Woodstock IL. If you are on Instagram follow us at #vintagetorque See More

    This will be my first time at the Invasion. Booked my room last night. Looking forward to it. I was a little bummed to see that the Lions swap meet in Morris IL is the following weekend. I would always hit that up after the HCPU.

    For those that need camping, Harley Davidson of Woodstock is offering some limited camping at their dealership. If anyone needs info, call them direct and ask for Ashley. Once they are full, Smitty still has plenty of room on his 3 acres. (see post above)
