Highlights from GNRS 2019

Highlights from GNRS 2019

As always the Grand National Roadster Show did not disappoint! We attended this year in building four as usual with our 1966 Dodge Polara, 1969 Chevy Chevelle and our 1972 InterRaptor!! We also had in building six our 1938 Chevy and 1965 Chevy Malibu. It was a killer mix of builds that we enjoyed working on over the last year or two depending on the build.

It seemed the specters really enjoyed all the classics we brought this year but what really had people in awe was the 1972 InterRaptor! Of course how could it not stop people to ask a few more questions. It is a 1972 International body that sits on a 2013 Ford Raptor. It has all the luxuries of a modern truck with the look of a classic SUV 4×4. It also won first place in it’s class at the GNRS! Our 1965 Chevy Malibu also won first place in its class of Conservative hardtop.

We enjoyed talking to each and every single person that stopped by. It was thrilling to see the excitement on your faces and hear the passion in your voices as we all talked about classic cars. Hopefully we can do it all over again at the Good Guys Del Mar show that’s coming up. In the mean time here our some pictures from the show!!

Thank you for looking through! These are only some of the pictures that I took over the weekend but they are some of the more favorites!! We hope you agree!

Cheers

Peterson Automotive Museum at HRCS

The Peterson Museum visits Hot Rods and Custom Stuff!!

The Checkered Flag 200 tour...

Hot Rods and Custom Stuff had the esteemed pleasure of hosting the Peterson Museum checkered flag  200 members on one of their garage tour circuits of the best automotive shops in Southern California. It was such an honor to have a group of genuine enthusiasts and collectors to share a portion of our day with.

We enjoyed nothing more as they browsed our collection of work as we engaged in talk of all things automotive and what our plans were on all of our builds here at the shop and of course along with cars that they owned as well. It was a fantastic exchange!! While on this tour we realized what an enjoyable experience it was. The many stories we heard from our visitors are some that we will keep with us for a lifetime!!!

In the end this was a fantastic opportunity for us to meet more people who love and enjoy the preservation of automotive history!! To that we are ever grateful to our time with everyone who came out!! Until next time drive safely!!!
