Hot Rods on the Infield - The Rodder's Journal Revival

The Rodder's Journal Vintage Speed and Custom Car Show Revival is a must do annual event held at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. It is open to pre-1966 hot rods, customs, and competition cars. The guys and gals from Bubba's Garage took a road trip to cover their 3rd Annual event.

What is your favorite car? I am partial to early 60's Cadillacs and it didn't take me long to find my favorite car at the Revival. Ed Szymansky's 1961 Cadillac Coupe de Ville had me circling it many times. I loved the color. I loved the pinstriping. I just loved the car!

At a show like this you will always find pinstriping. Some of it will be be a major design element of the car while others are a bit more subtle with the stripes.

Another paint feature you will find at the Rodder's Journal Revival show is metal flake. Mmmm, lots of flake.

Nothing is more traditional on a hot rod than a good flamed paint job. It doesn't matter if it is on a Ford, like Tom Giovinazzo's 1934 Ford Coupe, or on a Chevy, like Ian Weber's 1952 Chevy Sedan, because flames just look cool.

The Rodder's Journal Revival is a young show but it is starting to attract some vendors and sponsors. Peg was lucky enough to win $100 gift card from the good people at Speedway Motors, which she used to buy some supplies for the shop. TRJ also brings in a good selection of food from area food trucks for you to chow on.
