(Photos by Chris Kelly) – One of the things that always amazes us is thinking about just how big this hobby is. As the Hot Rod Power Tour weaves through the center of the country with thousands of cars in tow, shows like this massive gathering, the Heartland Rod Run, in Brownwood, Texas happen at the same time. Other shows of equal scope were going on in all of the other 50 states as well. There are lots of cars guys out in the world and so many cool cars it boggles the mind.
Chris sent us nearly 200 photos from this wide open gathering in Riverside Park last weekend. There’s everything from hydraulic equipped Cadillacs to traditional rods and jalopies of the highest order. They had a burnout contest, adding to the fun and you’ll see a bunch of cars and trucks roasting their meats in this gallery as well.
A big thanks to Chris Kelly for sending in these photos! The Texas scene is really something and this show proves it for sure!
