Merry Christmas from HRCC

Hope you all had a great Christmas. Here are a few images from our Christmas HAMB Soiree. It was a full house and we didn't leave the shop until 1am! Good times for sure. Thanks to everyone who came to spread some Holiday cheer.

SEMA wrap up

We're back from SEMA, and wow, what a week! It was really an honor to have Bruce's '55 GMC truck in the Stewart Warner booth. In hanging out with Christian and Bob from SW, we got to hear people come up and say things like "Where would we be without Stewart Warner". It is definitely a brand that means a lot to us here at HRCC. Chad's Grandfather worked for them for 20 years.

The rest of the show was great. We had a great time seeing friends and colleagues from all over the country, seeing new products, and new builds. Can't wait until next year!

Motorcycle season is here.

Spring is here and many of us at Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle are getting our bikes out to run.  Our new customer, Dennis got ahead of the game and brought his Panhead to us to get some of the electrical and mechanical parts finished up. 

Bill, our experienced 18 year Harley mechanic, is up to the job.  From hardtail modifications and  full wiring and plumbing, to spring yearly maintenance and safety inspections, now is the time to get your motorcycle out and enjoy the weather.

GTO-R on the track

We now have some Max Gerson track photos from the Optima Challenge in Nevada and some of Robert McGaffin photos from Hot Rod Magazine on the GTO gallery page. Click here to check it out!

"The Next Victim"

We were approached by our new buddy Steve S. about building an awesome '57 Chrysler Saratoga ala GTO-R, but without the cage. So a stroked, all aluminum 413 Sonoramic Commando is in order. Stay tuned.

The "Sole Shaker"

Our favorite Doctor, Dr. Bill (who also owns the Black Pearl 1955 F100) has decided to dip into our insanity again. This time with a wild 1956 Chevy Stepside deemed "Sole Shaker". Running a stroked, blown, and Hilborn Injected 394 Olds Rocket, it should shake the strip to the point you'll feel it in the soles of your feet!! Enjoy.
