Hi ho Daddy-o, it was the Relix Riot at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners Michigan and it was one heck of a hootenanny. Only pre-’64 cars and pre’65 trucks need apply for this Traditional Hot Rod and Custom show. It was just good old fashion hot rods like they were built in the ’40’s, ’50’s and early ’60s. 10 years and going strong for this riotous rodding rumble, it appears this show is here to stay.
To keep the faithful coming you need to offer the goods and the Relix Riot proffered the perfect recipe for a hot rodders dream day. To break this down into some straight forward facts, you need to start with a supremely fine base. First, a location that pays meticulous homage to the world of Automobilia that we hold so near and dear. Check, the incomparable Gilmore Car Museum. Second, add to that a prime and select traditional Rods and Customs. Check and check. Then carefully mix the right dose of swinging tunes, decked out lads and lassies, and a swap meet to die for. Finally, finish it off with mighty fine diner food and there you have it, the perfect show. Better known as the Relix Riot.
