Good Words about  and about YOU !

sold  speedstar joey marino

We got a very nice email from one of our sellers this week... happy with Hotrodhotline and  with YOU.....

Jack and Mary Ann,
I would like to thank you personally for helping me sell my high-end 1933 Speedstar on It was ad#24189, Black with Red Paul Atkins interior & Bobby Alloway signature flames.

I sold the car 2 weeks ago to a gentlemen from Durant, OK. He owns an Anhueser-Busch Distributorship & the “Monster” power drink franchise.There are a lot of Speedstars on your website, so I was initially concerned that my car was not going to get a lot of attention because it was higher priced than most of the
others. My car actually belonged to Bobby Alloway & was a attractively priced at $79,500.
The party that bought the car was well aware of the quality & history of the car & didn’t hesitate about the price.

I also had the Speedstar listed with and in a magazine advertisement.
Believe it or not, I didn’t receive one response from either of them, but was approached by numerous people that saw the add on

This is about the 6th car I have sold or traded on HotRodHotLine & I have been extremely pleased.
My wife & I have met so many nice people from your website, that, if nothing else it is worth it for that reason alone. That’s what makes this hobby so much fun, it’s the great people we all meet.

Please let your subscribers know that although they have a high-end car for sale, to be patient, because it only takes one person with the resources to purchase & it becomes a done deal.

I tell everyone that I know about HotRod HotLine & the success that I have had.
Thanks again, my wife & I really appreciate the help.

Joey Marino, Pueblo West, Colorado

We really appreciate the good words from Joey and others who email us... and what Joey said about our visitors is absolutely  TRUE....  the best thing that we have gained from  is the huge number of friends we have made over these past years...

prod hedman11

American Made "Tight Tubes" Street Rod Hedders, from Hedman Hedders, have a patented collector design that tucks in tight against the engine block, providing more clearance during custom engine installs. They are ideal for narrow frame rails, or for virtually any tight application where the use of ordinary block hugger hedders is impossible, and off the shelf hedders are non-existent. Since the unique design of the Tight Tubes collector produces as much power as a standard hedder collector, builders have more design flexibility without sacrificing performance
