Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle Skunkworks

With our 10 year anniversary, we are proud to announce the formalization of our Race Car Division as the Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle Skunkworks. Since the beginning, we've built 1964 and earlier hot rods and customs or any year race car. The race car division has always been a little under the radar. We've consistantly built cages and suspension in drag car Camaros, and road racing Porsches and muscle cars. It was our best kept secret. We joked internally that it was the "Skunkworks"…. top secret stuff that goes mad stupid ridiculously fast! It seemed only natural to expand that work into something more visible to our customers and fans around the world. The first car to come from the new Race Car Division will be the Violent Valiant. We'll be announcing the 2nd car in March. We're all very excited about the expansion of the Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle brand and look forward to the future building killer hot rods. mind blowing show rods and purpose built race cars into our next decade.

Our newest Race Car project arrives soon! See it for the first time Saturday Feb 15th, at our 1st Annual Racer's Movie Night at 6pm! Share with your friends and try to guess what it is… Ford? Chevy? Mopar?

Join us at the shop to watch a great movie, videos from Road America, and anything else we can come up with. Bench race, tell lies, and share fellowship with gear heads from all genres of racing. Pro-Touring, Drag Racing and Trans-Am will all be represented.

Jimi Day from FM3/Optima Batterieswill be on hand to give a short presentation about the all new Ultimate Street Car Association. Safety equipment, fees, etc. will be presented for your edification.

BYOB, $5 for pizza and a lawn chair. Get out of the house and hang with some of the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic people from around the country on a cold Winters night.

We'll be showing "LeMans", for the main feature, as well as have home movies and videos playing during the social time before and after the movie.
