Happy Father's Day! June is wild around here, and out there. We're currently out on the road on the 20th Annual Hot Rod Power Tour, and next week we head to St. Paul, MN for Back to the 50s Weekend! Come see us! We'll be right by registration, just like last year.  Meanwhile, there are so many good shows and events this weekend, which is great for those of you with dads who are itching to get out of the house.  The Goodguys All American Nationals in West Springfield, MA; the LA Roadster Show in Pomona, CA,  the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, TN, just to name a few!  We know a bunch of you will be out and about, so send us your coverage to [email protected]! We love to share those photos and experiences with readers. We've got some other great stuff for you this week: Tex Smith talks about the start of hot rod Autocross, Gunner explains how to get new keys for your hot rod, and we look for a stolen car in Lebanon, MO.

This week's featured classified ad is a 1933 Ford Cabriolet. It's listed at $125,000 and is located in Mississauga, ONT Canada.  

This gorgeous Cabriolet is a 2005 Ridler Great 8 finalist with a stretched chassis, a Corvette LS1 engine, and lush burgandy and titanium paint and interior.
