Goodguys Comes to HRCC

It's that time of the year again... Good Guys in Joliet, September 17, 18, 19 and 20. We're proud to announce that Good Guys have selected Hot Rod Chassis to be the site of the official kick off party on Thursday afternoon/night of the 17th. A poker run style event will leave from the Registration Booth at the Chicagoland Speedway at 12:00pm and run a course ending at Hot Rod Chassis at around 3pm. A Good Guys provided DJ will spin from 3pm until 6pm when Pearls Mahone & The One Eyed Jacks will take the stage for some live entertainment. The Midwest Street Rod Association will be serving Chicago Style hot dogs from 5pm on. Hot Rod Chassis will provide an open house atmosphere along with shop tours. Come out and join us! HAMB Meet & Greet at 7pm. Hope to see you all there.

Website Gallery Updates

We've been working on overhauling the shop gallery. The change has been long overdue, and now has a great new feature. You can click on the build photo icon to see hundreds of progress and build photos on each project. Keep checking back in the next few weeks as we add a few more cars to the gallery.

Summer Garage Days

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Summer Garage Days swap meet. We had a really good selection of vintage parts... stuff you're not going to find at your typical swap meet, while you're tripping over Fox Body Mustang parts. How about an Edelbrock SBC X3 manifold for $700? When was the last time you saw one of those? Well, besides the one for "The Hot Rod With No Name" and the one for the "Atomic Bombshell" that we are building for customers in the shop right now! So that makes three we have seen in Chicagoland... ever.

Special thanks to ContinentalJohn for bringing some really kick ass BBQ for everyone. It was a huge hit!

Here are just a couple pics from the day. Remember that we do a Spring and Summer Garage Days every year, so keep checking back for next year's dates.
