Trumperica!

There it is!

Never met a car lover that was a liberal!







 

 Why is the Rod Run mostly bad mouthed? Is it a Rod Run? There is an actual organized show now in the LeConte Convention center and the large displays of exotic high dollar sports cars was in the CARHUNTER'S opinion pointless, it is a ROD RUN. I have learned that many of the cars in the displays pay to be there so you could put your 1980 Trans Am in there. Most of the vehicles in the building really do not fall into a Street Rod, Hot Rod or Rat Rod theme. What you (hopefully) viewed was a basic freestyle free for all gathering along the road called Parkway and cars gather in the unregulated spots early in the week or a blocker car is placed to save it. Within the many cars are some who just come to enjoy the sights and sounds although most are taken there to sell or swap. Tired of your old ride do some trading! Is a giant swap meet car coral make it a bad thing? NO. Are there cars of interest and unique? YES. Is it a car show. NO. Is it a cruise in. NO. The facts are that most of the "cruiser" traffic is normal everyday cars as most people won't park and walk to see the cars. The other part of the "cruiser" traffic consists of large diesel pickem ups loaded with slightly rowdy kids. Will this ever be a legit Rod Run. NO. CARHUNTER still enjoys walking the Parkway so it gets a thumbs up for what it is.   


This week we show my new Packard
1947 Super Clipper with a 350 and 700R4 auto overdrive!
