It's hard to believe, but Labor Day is finally upon us and those long, lazy summer days are drawing to a close. We hope you have a full weekend of celebrating ahead of you, and that you get your cruising on over the holiday. We attended the Hot Rod stamps dedication this week at the Petersen Museum and got to see the inspirations for those stamps in person. We bring you that story, plus the chance to have your vehicle become the collector car of the Northeast, and a few terrific rodder's row, in addition to the Street Car of the Year from the Goodguys big Pleasanton event this past weekend.  We hope you stay safe and happy while enjoying time with friends and family, and as always, we look forward to hearing about the shows you attend, the cars you love, and the stories you have to share. Email us at [email protected]!  Happy Rodding!
