    Big congrats to Mike - Unbelievable! This was one of the most outstanding car events I've been to. I think this could become the Sturgis of Hot Rods!

    Great work Mike! This looks like one of the best Hot Rod Events to attend in the country.

    Maybe next year we can make it back to Colorado for this event.

    All of the photos look good. The cars and the settings are all perfect.

    Any information on this six cylinder powered roadster? I caught it on a couple of the videos and it sounds like a P51 Mustang (that's a compliment).

  9. Yes, that's Dave Overholt, 31 Chevy with a 34 grille, wicked six that runs 13 seconds in a 1/4 mile!
     
  10. That looks awesome!! I only had 100 made, and have a few left, I'll put them on the website for sale this week. $30 + shipping.

    Jeff Norwell did the artwork, they turned out real nice!
     
  11. Here's a few more pics from the best hotrod weekend ever. No action shots just some of the cars in town. Me and my Red Hot Gal by the Hillclimb coupe and our 3 children in the background. I'll have some video on youtube shortly.

  17. Wow! You did it Mike.

    Many congrats to you my friend. The best reward is hearing all of those people say "what a time". Fathers being flown in for Father's Day for an amazing memory, that is what it's all about. You have given people more then you can take from this. An excellent job pal!

    I'm honored I could help in a small way. I was surprised to see my mention in the Hot Rod article, so neat. Thanks!

    Only wish I could have been there. Sure glad Bonesy was there with "our 32" hahaaaa. The Race of Gents was there in spirit. Again thanks for the props in the press. You deserve all the praise for all that hard work. Cause that is what it is... Work! The best kind of work!

    Hope to see you at the Trog someday, surely hope to see you in Colarado in a bad little hill climber too.

    Oh, no bikes this year? Shoot, I might have won with no comp., damn... foiled again!

    Mike
    Thanks for the opportunity to participate! It was so much fun. As an old IT guy I really appreciate your creative use of the technology underpinning the entire enterprise. From the art work to communication to the organization everything was very well done. I am working on a video that my son Jeff shot while we were making the runs. Thanks again.

    Any details on the 427a sedan? Looked like he was making quite the charge up the pass in the video clip!
