We've been busy here at Hot Rod Hotline! We just got back from South Carolina where we got a sneak peak at one of Michelin's new tires and got a chance to test it, and we're going to be at the Hot Rod Restoration show this weekend, and the upcoming Charlotte Auto Fair. All this travel has made us itchy for nice weather and rides on a long road with the top down.  We asked before and we'll ask again, where are you hoping to travel this summer, and what vehicle will YOU be taking? Let us know at [email protected].
