    I'm planning on coming out that afternoon.
    Are they gonna have an "in work" or "Project" category? I've got everything rebuilt/replaced and back to factory on the wifes 70 Nova except it needs paint and body work now so the only place it would fit is project, thinking about bringing it out.

    Bo and Jim from Lonestar 92.5 are going to be out there for the show as well. You can go to the website for more information ...

    Did you guys do the Corvette for their 30th anniversary?

    I don't actually work for the House of Hotrods, but yes they are doing the '82 Corvette for the Bo & Jim 30th Anniversay Bash and I've been told that it will be on display and will be about 90% complete, they're fretting that not enough of the parts and stuff they ordered for the project will be here in time. (For those that don't get it, 1982-2002 ... 30 years ... an 1982 Corvette is probably the best platform to build a custom Hot Rod from those lean "energy-saving" engine years.

    Bo & Jim will be onsite at some point during the day, I can call up the guys at HOHR and see when they think they'll show up.
