    There's a lot more than I can type up here, but it's going to be a fun event and I'll be there in the morning for a little bit as well, so stop by and say hello!

    Update: I don't work for House of Hotrods directly, but I do have some common interests with them and I will be at the show off and on during the day. Please add a comment to this thread if you are going to be there and bring your truck and we'll get a picture together!

    Just to bump this, there is a band there and we've got a ton of people looks like this will be a big car show. Bring your car to enter to win or just show up and walk around and chat with folks.

    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.

    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.
