HOT ROD REVO.
It's a Revolution...
DUE TO WEATHER, THE 2013 HOT ROD REVOLUTION HAS BEEN CANCELED.
Well, it actually started in early 2006 over one too many margaritas and a dream to do something different. After much thought and consideration, the revolutionaries (Keith, Mary, Ryan, and Marcie) decided that the world needed a different kind of car show. Armed with a passion for traditional hot rods and a dedication to spreading the gospel, the Hot Rod Revolution began.
The first five years of the show were hosted in Penngrove, CA at an old baseball diamond. The show quickly garnered a reputation as being the best small car show on the planet – 100 or so pre-1948 hot rods and a few good good folks is all we needed. Quality over quantitiy.
Even so, we couldn’t sit on our asses and call it done. A few years ago, we decided to throw a monkey in the barrel and move the show to the wonderful city of Austin, TX. In doing so, we also picked up a couple of new revolutionaries – Steve Wertheimer and Will Muntz. It set up a perfect storm. The Seaholm Power Plant was chosen as a backdrop and what ended up going down on that November day in 2010 has become legendary.
In 2011 and 2012, the show was held at an active military base in conjunction with the US Army. Camp Mabry was a wonderful setting and one we will always have fond memories of, but once again a change was in order. The 2013 Hot Rod Revolution will be held on November 23rd in the historical Gruene, Texas. This, my friends, is gonna be epic!
