2009 Street Rodder Road Tour

2009 Street Rodder Road Tour

Every year Street Rodder Magazine has a "Road Tour" Car built at one of America's hot rod shops, with the help of sponsor supplied parts, and then takes that car on a cross-country tour of America's hot rod events and places of interest. We built the 2004 Road Tour car, but this year we were just one of many stops along the way as the 2009 Road Tour car and its entourage of horse-power fanatics pulled in early on a Saturday morning for coffee, donuts and tour of our shop to start the day.

Road Tour Groupies roll in to our paint and assembly facility in Escondido. The night before they attended Cruisin' Grand Ave., in downtown Escondido. Offer free coffee and donuts, and they will come!

Parking behind our shop is plentifull, you just have to find a spot amongst the old iron looking for a new home (anyone need a truck cab?)

Chick Koszis '32 Ford roadster (right), was built here at hot rods.

The Road Tour car, a 1952 Chevy, goes up on the rack for an inspection and to fix a fuel leak.

Hmmmmm..... donuts....

After their fuel injection of caffein and sugar, the Road Tour folks get to see some projects in the final stages of completion.

Smile! See you next year!
