This is a stop we make in Bozeman every year... this trip Jack spotted a 60 Chevy he needed to get a closer look at...


There’s  a reason they call it  Big Sky  country.

   The trip to Minnesota from Idaho for the Back to the Fifties show,  is always a great drive.  The scenery is fabulous and we drive through Montana which is a goldmine of old cars in fields,  yards and everywhere.  Every Rodder should take a trip through Montana... you’d have a great time,  enjoy the scenery and  the people..... and there are treasures to find everywhere in towns along I 90....  We took a few pictures along the way to give you just a small taste....Look for it in our show coverage.

     We’re all set up and ready for a great show starting tomorrow... we will be taking lots of  pictures so you can see what’s happening at Back to the Fifties this year.  If you make it to the show be sure to stop by and see us in the Merchandise Mart building... We have our famouse  “Flame Kit for your Mouse”  and some of the Hotrodhotline blueprint calendars and Hotrodhotline shirts are available in a limited number.  The T shirts are only $10. and Workshirts  are  $15.  Come by and see us.

Kevin will be attending college and hopes to find a career in the Car Industry some day...  we know he has a great future as his love of the hobby is unmatched !  Congrats  KEVIN ... Way to go !

Chet Herbert Hydraulic Roller Lifters. For Small Block Chevy applications. All new and improved design. When we redesigned these retro-fit hydraulic roller lifters, we wanted the most durable, trouble free lifter available. We did this by using the same materials as our solid roller lifters. And instead of using O.E. style bearing as most other performance units, we used the very same bearings as our solid vertical bar roller lifters

Even the best new speakers cause speaker panel distortion.  Home audio speakers typically come in well crafted, heavy boxes to eliminate this distortion - a solution that is impossible (or at least impractical) in your car.  For your car, Dynamat is the solution. Applying Dynamat to the panels surrounding your speakers eliminates speaker panel distortion by transforming the flimsy sheet metal into a solid non-resonant baffle.  Get complete details here
