Hey Gang
Itís Monday and Iím still recovering from all the excitement of the NSRA Nationals South in Knoxville, TN., this past weekend.  We had a fast paced never a dull moment kind of event, visiting with friends we havenít seen in a while. And first on that list were the great guys of MHRA, these are a great bunch of guys, and they are my Heroes. I canít begin to tell how much I admire these guys for what they contribute to our Sport, as I have reported in the past, in my opinion these guys are the unsung heroes of our Sport.  And the sad thing is most of us donít realize this until they need their service.  If you have ever had the bad luck to need them then you will see why I canít say enough good things about them. Iím proud to say that HRHL is a Supporter, and I can say that Jack and Mary Ann Lawford feel the same or more so about this as myself.  Jack Lawford has told me that when heís at the same shows as MHRA he finds himself spending more time in their booth than he does his own, not having his car repaired but just observing and admiring the great services they do for our fellow Street Rodders. When you are at an event with the MHRA please stop by and say Hi and see for yourself what they do, I think you will leave with a new appreciation for these guys. Donít wait until your ride is broken, let them know you support and appreciate them now. We need these guys and more like them.  Who says that?  I say that. Iím Jack Roberts, reporting the good things on HotRod HotLine! Keep on Krooziní - Safely!!! Jack!!!

The crew was kept busy over the winter taking their tool trailer apart and rebuilding it.

They now have a new 1 Ton Van that really looks great and from what Al tells me, makes it much better traveling!

This is a list of people who helped support MHRA last year.  There's a list on each side of the new trailer and Al Tawse asked that I tell the people who helped them that their donations

Those businesses and individuals who donated to MHRA allow them to continue traveling the great distances to be there when a Street Rodder needs help!
