The Car Craft Summer Nationals is all about variety, and we took some time away from our display in the Pro Builders Shootout to grab some snap shots of cool cars and trucks at the event. Car Craft claimed over 6000 cars and 40,000 people attended the event, and we believe it!

The 2015 Goodguys PPG Nationals in Columbus is home to some fantastic Muscle Car and Street Machine action, including the crownging of the Street Machine Of The Year Award. (SMOTY) This year, the competition was amazing as a tremendous variety of modified Muscle Cars competed for the title. However, one of the coolest aspects of the competition is that each SMOTY contender needs to be a real car... meaning that it needs not only to run and drive, but it is thrashed on the autocross course! In this gallery shot by McGaffin Digital Photo, you'll see these high-dollar rides in motion as they are beat up on the course.
The 2015 Street Machine Natonals in DuQuoin, IL, was a great place to tavel back in time to see some of the most iconic Pro Street car from the era. Cars like Troy Trepanier's "ProBox" 1960 Impala, Gary Buckle's 1971 Camaro, Matt & Debbie Hay's Thunderbird, and many more were on-hand in the Legends of Pro Street aisle. We snapped a bunch of photos of the event, including a few of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop-built 1969 Camaro "ZR9" as it made it's public debut!
We recently attended a cool small-town Midwest car show hosted by the Waterloo, Illinios Optimist Club, a youth fundraising organization. Muscle Cars, Hot Rods, cool trucks, and more were on hand for the event heald Sunday, June 7 in the historic courthouse square in Waterloo, IL. Being a youth oriented fundraiser, they hosted events like the Kids Choice award and had a 24 foot long Hot Wheels track with supplied cars for kids to race all day. We brought the V8TV cameras and will be featuring video from the event on our website and the V8TV television show soon. Click the Read More link for the full gallery!
Click the "Read More" button below for a throwback gallery of shots from the 2012 Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour stop at Gateway Motorsports Park just outside of St. Louis in Madison, Il. It was a hot and sunny day, and the big show and passes down the drag strip were enjoyed by Power Tour participants and locals alike.
While there is considerable buzz surrounding the Dertroit Autorama for being the show where the Ridler Award is presented, there are hundreds of cars on display. Social media coverage favors the Great 8 and eventual Rilder winner, but we thought it would be fun to take a tour of the whole show. Special Thanks to Joe Miuccio for taking the time to snap these photos and for sharing them with us!
Sometimes small versions of Hot Rods and Muscle Cars can be just as cool... if not cooler... than the full size cars! In this case, we came across a gallery of awesome pedal cars, push buggies, wagons, and go-carts that we just had to share. There could be more time in some of these jr. sized rides than many people put into building their real car!
