There was quite a commotion up Kalamazoo way and hi ho Daddy – O, it was one heck of a hullabaloo. It was rockin’, rollin’ and right on. It was the Relix Riot and it rolled through the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, MI causing a hot rodding ruckus. Nothing but the finest Traditional Hot Rods decorated the grounds of the incomparable Automobile Mecca. Relix Riot is a ’64 or earlier Traditional Hot Rod show, and there was nothing stock there.
There were Kustoms that defined Kool, traditional street rods straight out of “the day”, and so many other one of kind rides it made your head spin. It was good old fashion hot rods like they were built in the ’40’s, ’50’s and early ’60s. Couple that with an outstanding swap meet, the finest rock and roll and a mighty nifty diner and there you have it folks, the perfect show.
Cast an eye at Traditional Rods at their finest.
Cream of the crop Customs.
The coolest Cruisers rolling.
Now set your way back machine to the time before Muscle Cars, digital dashes and billet components. You won’t be roaming over rat rods or art cars either. Take a look at a Traditional Hot Rod show, Relix Riot style.
There is so much more to see from this show. Head over to the Event Coverage Gallery and check out the goods.
Our hats are off to the folks that keep this one of a kind show going. Mike Borema, of Gas Axe Garage and Crystal Cadillac fame is the mastermind behind this. It’s a tall order to keep a stand out show like this going into it’s second decade, but these cats have the perfect recipe down!
If you have not made it to the Gilmore Car Museum, you must. It is a glorious haven that pays meticulous homage to the history and evolution of that which we hold so near and dear; the Automobile. Seriously, the Gilmore Car Museum is no joke friends, it’s one of the largest of it’s kind in the U.S.A. and worth every mile to get there. Check out their site, they have events going on year round.
Till the next time – Keep on Kruzin!
