Southeastern Nats!

The Southeastern Nats are off the hook and it's only Friday. This is my first trip to Charlotte Motor Speedway and I'm blown away!  Now you all know this isn't my first rodeo and I have seen a thing or two but; this show, this setting, it's really something else.  Worth the trip is an understatement.  How can you miss; the Hallowed Grounds of the Charlotte Motor Speedway combined with the GoodGuys 18th Southeastern Nationals.  It equals pure gearhead Nirvana! Here are some pics from today, the remaining 400 or so shots are in the "Most RecentShow Gallery".  Enjoy!

There is no doubt that tomorrow is going to be awesome!  I say this all the time but I really mean it, if you can get here - DO IT.  Trust me you won't be disappointed.  Get the skinny at the GoodGuys website.  

Til the next time my friends -  Keep on Kruzin!

 

Back to the Pile Up

I just can't get enough of the Old Skool Kool that defines the Hunnert Car Pile Up and it seems neither can you my friends.  The Pile Up is consistently one of the most talked about shows we attend.  I guess we all have a little bit of rebel in us.  I  told you we would be back with video this time and here goes it Cats and Kittens.  Up close and personal detail on some of the awesome and way out rides that were at the 10th and final Hunnert Car Pile Up.

I know its a bit short and sweet but I'm gearin' up to head out East to the GoodGuys Southeastern Nationals!  Like I said before I've never been and am really looking forward to the show.

Back to the Pile UP

Things have slowed down a bit here and I've got some time to really get into some of the other shows we have been to recently.  That means we are heading back to the City of Progress and Oh Daddy - O hold on to your hat, we are revisiting one of the coolest of the cool, and the hippest of the hip shows out there: the 2011 Hunnert Car Pile Up.  

Today it's all about pictures, videos will be next time.  Here are some more highlights froms the "Greasiest Show in the Midwest".  George Barris, Mr. Kenneth Robert Howard (Von Dutch anyone) and Gene Winfield would be proud, very proud!

I get a lot of requests from event participants to make sure their ride is featured in the event gallery, so I've added an additional 322 new pictures to the Hunnert Car Pile Up Most Recent Show Gallery, bringing the total to pretty close to 600 pictures..  I urge you to take a look at these rides; they are way out, they are far out, they are the outer limits.  Careful though, too much Pile Up and you might start rollin' your jeans and greasing back you hair!

FYI - getting ready to head East to the Southeastern Nationals in Charlotte, NC next week.  First time at the show and we're really looking forward to it.

Green Street

What a hidden gem!  Green Street Cruise Night is really something special and has built quite a loyal following!  We are so lucky to have a curise night that goes well into October, we also really lucked out that the weather was outstanding this past Monday.  Put the two together and you have a cruise night that was busting at the seams - they really just ran out of room.  I have never seen a cruise night where they were parked 3 deep!  Hands down, this was "one of if not the biggest turnout the Green Street Cruise Night has ever seen"!  A rough estimate had the car count nearing 500 and I'm here to tell you it was evey bit of that if not more!  Hats off to the great folks involved with this event, your hard work really payed off  and if this finale of 2011 is any incication 2012 should be a great sucess.

I was worried it was going to be a bit of a disaster; trying to take pictures of a car show in the dark?!  I think it turned out ok and is actually a little cool. As well as proof positive that this was a huge show that just didn't want to end!  Literally, it was DARK out and NO ONE was leaving.  I really haven't seen anything like this.  I'm used to a few cars lingering around after dark but at Green Street the sun was long gone and not a car had moved!  A cruise night in the pitch dark, it was really something else.  Have a gander for yourself at this awesome turnout. 

Please forgive me, i've kinda been all over the place.  There will be a bit of "revisiting" if you will.  I've got more form Byron as well as the Pile Up.  Who knew October would be as busy as July!  Stay with me here, it'll be worth it.

The End of an Era

Billed as the greasiest hot rod show in the midwest, the highly anticiapted 10th Annual Hunnert Car Pile Up did not disappoint!  It was a picture perfect day in Decatur; the City of Progress was busting at the seams with iron, ink, rockin rock-a-billy and a whole lot of old skool kool!

Here's a vidoe that puts together just some of the fun stuff that was out at the Pile Up.  It's hard to take it all in because there's so much going on but I think you can get the drift. 

Not to fret cats and kittens, although we might not be seeing the Hunnert Car name attatched to another show anytime soon, the folks that put on the Vintage Torque Fest are going to be carrying on the tradition October 6th of 2012 with the Iron Invasion in Woodstock.  

There is more Pile Up coverage to come, stay tuned!

Til the next time - Keep on Kruzin!
