(Photos by Joe Grippo) – We’re back with the second and final Joe Gripo gallery from the 2017 and inaugural Hurst Nationals. The thing that you realize when you go through these photos is the fact that the Hurst name and touch fell on an incredible array of stuff over the years. Jeeps, the Rambler Scrambler, Oldsmobiles through the 1970s and 1980s, the Camaros, Mustangs, and Challengers, of today, and the list goes on and on.
The OEM world has changed a ton since the 1960s and Hurst had a TON to do with it. The specialty editions of cars that OEMs themselves produce these days are a derivative of the work that Hurst did with his company starting in the 1960s. Nearly 60 years ago, George Hurst had a vision and the execution of that vision made him a huge star and a household name, especially if you loved cars. Much like the rockstars of the era, his stuff has aged very well.
