  • 100 Car Pileup Show last weekend

    I went to an interesting show this weekend. The 100 Car Pileup Car Show is a ratrod show. Neat little show for pretty much everybody. Ratrods, motorcycles, and some of the most unique vehicles on the planet could be found over there. Here's some of the vehicles I saw over there:

    Somehow, these fell right into the show [8D]




    I seen him at the 150th anniversary Studebaker International Meet. Man they'll let anybody into these things.



    If its too low your too old.....well......

    Low...



    Lower.....



    Lowest..........



    I kinda liked this at the gate. Ironically enough even though it left out some groups of people, everybody was having a grand ol' time inside. I know I was. It was also an opportunity to walk away with some project ideas for my own cars. [^]

    Haven't spent much time over at the H.A.M.B. forum, have you?
    Calling it a ratrod show won't win you any favors with the hot rod crowd. That is a recurring subject of scorn over there...
    There is a full spectrum of builders over their, and their hunnert car pileup shows have become very well known..
    Just don't call 'em all ratrods...

        Oh the HAMB site, not lately no. I'd paruse the Samba site from time to time. I know not to call em all ratrods, I usually use that for the average coupe or sedan body such as the photo above(lowered, chopped, unpainted, you know). This particular show, the rat rods(whether they were rat or street rods) were as far as the eye could see. Oh there's no doubt about the builders, some of the guys I knew with putting some modern engines in modern cars that weren't built for em would fit right in. Plus this was a show where one could pick up some really cool and really unique performance parts I'd have a hard time getting elsewhere. [8D]

                That's the latest trend in old rods - farm tractor grilles.
                They're even pulling them off old welding units, etc.
                The more obscure, the better.

                    Thanks for posting this show. Some really cool stuff there.
                    I saw an add for a similar show once and it said, "No small block Chevy motors." Talk about leaving some folks out.....

                        I can see myself owning one of these, getting up early Sat. morning to go to a show and firing it up (take a look at these exhaust syst+) and leaving the hood. By the time I got home my house would be burned to the ground and no one would shed a tear.

                            Where was this show?

                            I see Dennis Gage of "My Classic Car" in one of your pictures.

                            It looks to me like the two Studebaker trucks that you picture would violate the "NO stock appearing" rule.
