Tales of Inspiration Contest

Tales of Inspiration Contest

Inspiration: We find it all around us – in the things our friends and family love, in stories, movies, books, television and the internet.  We find inspiration in that picture of our buddy’s build, or from the latest restoration coming out of a favorite shop, in the AMBR and Ridler winners, and the smaller car shows and contests. We find it early in the morning, polishing that fender, and late at night dreaming about the perfect wiring system.

Everyone in this hobby and industry found that first moment inspiration from somewhere or someone. Was it from your folks? The first site of that roadster as a teenager? A dream of what a car should look like, sound like, feel like?

Tell us about the first person, event, or vehicle that inspired your interest in hot rodding, racing, or car collecting and where that inspiration took you. You can send us an essay, a few sentences, a photograph, or a collection of image. Let your imagination inspire you. We’ll put all the answers together on the site, and choose a few favorite “Tales of Inspiration” winners to send t-shirts to.

Responses can be sent to [email protected] or feel free to post on your Facebook page, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter or blog and send the link to us. We’ll keep the lines open until next Friday at 5 p.m. EST.  For social media, use the #HRHLInspire tag so we know how to find you!
