We've got a lot to be excited about  in this week's newsletter. Reporter Chadly Johnson photographs and tells the story of Gary Morris' '34 cab truck. Richard Parks and Roger Rohrdanz attended the "Snake and Mongoose" movie premier, and share their thoughts on the film. We've also got barn finds, Bonneville records, readers' rides and of course, tons of car show coverage, event news and great offers from our sponsors!  Just because outdoor show season is drawing to a close doesn't mean that the great events are over. In September alone we've got Goodguys, NHRA, Somernites, and plenty of other exciting shows, not to mention tons of local events to check out. Remember to share your coverage with fellow fans and enthusiasts. Got questions? E-mail us at [email protected]!

Wheels of Time Street Rod Association is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the art of street-rodding. Our members enjoy displaying their handiwork at many local and national events. We host many such events every year right here in our own Lehigh Valley. Our premier event is the fantastic Rod and Custom Jamboree held each August in Macungie, PA. Over 2000 street rods and custom cars are on display every year at this popular event.


Advanced Plating can provide you with the quality and service you expect from a world class company. Located in our new 60,000 square foot facility located in Nashville, TN, we are able to turn out the show quality chrome plating and powder coating we have become known for. 


Krist Kustoms has been in the hot rod interior business for over 12 years. Krist Kustoms started as a custom hot rod upholstery shop in 1998, and has been growing ever since. While they still specialize in custom hot rod interiors, they now have their own line of hot rod seating and interior parts and accessories.

Next year the show will be on September  at the Orange County Fairgrounds again, where we expect over 4000 vehicles and will offers PSA Prostate Cancer screening for men over 40.
