Hot Rod Jamboree

There's no shortage of love around these parts for hot rods, so here you go. Dig out your Chevys, your Fords, your gassers and everything in between. The past few years have been light on pre-1960 cars in stores so you'll have to dig through your collection or check your vintage retailers.


Congratulations to Voxxer Racing on another Pro Series tournament win.

Given the Pro Series history...please review the rules and ask any questions now, sooner than later.

Hopefully the rules are straight forward enough this time. In general, make it look like a hot rod and you'll probably be okay.

Just to clarify one point, "Retail wheels and axles only. Any axle type allowed", means that FTE wheels and axles are allowed, but custom axles or wheels are not allowed, correct?

Just making sure :)

I just noticed I had given incorrect information on my raceway. It is a scale 1/4 mile. So it measures 20'5/8". 

I apologize if I cause anyone any additional work.

  • No problem, thanks for the update. — aircooled

So if it is a model based on a real car that is pre-'60 it can be considered?  I almost exclusively buy vans and wagons.  I think I have a Nomad and Studebaker wagon that may be able to qualify.
