Upcoming Show! Vintage Torque Fest!

The first weekend of May is a busy one in the world of Midwest hot rods & kustoms. In addition to the Stray Kat 500 in Dewey, OK is the Vintage Torque Fest held in Dubuque, IA. I was lucky enough to attend the first two Vintage Torque Fests and man oh man did I have a blast.

What you need to know about VTF:
  • all of the proceeds go to charity, a good one
  • traditional hot rod & kustom car show, other kinds of cars are welcomed but must park in their own areas, the main show area will be pre-65 hot rods & kustoms, no billet, no digital, for a full listing of the requirements click here.
  • One of my favorite notes on that page is "Stuffed animals, cry baby dolls, rubber rats, fake food drive in trays, skeletons in passenger seats are not for Vintage Torque Fest."
  • Music to include:
    The Afterdarks
    The Alder Kings
    Captain Stab Tuggo
    Concrete Rivals
    Death By Rodeo
    Delilah DeWylde & The Lost Boys
    The Heroine
    Hot Rod Hucksters
    Krank Daddies
    Labretta Suede & Motel 6
    Babe Miller and His 10-4′s
    Misery Jackals
    Muddy Udders
    Royal Rhytmaires
    Surf Zombies
    3 On The Tree
    The Von Ehrics
    Dale Watson
Here are some of my photos from the first 2 shows:



So, if you can make it to the Vintage Torque Fest you'd better go, you'll probably be sorry you missed it. If anyone has a time machine that I can borrow I would like to hit both shows that weekend.

See you at a show,
