Event Coverage: Roadmates Corn Roast 2014

2

Those of you who are long term readers know that the Roadmates Corn Roast is an event I attend every year because of its close proximity to my house, laid back nature, awesome collection of classic cars, and amazing hot dogs.

This year the ‘roast seemed a little bit smaller than the ones preceding it but regardless of size any day with hot rods is better than a day without.

This car seems to perpetually be for sale, looks like it would be a fun ride to pick up so I wonder what is keeping it from selling…

I wouldn’t have thought a sign like this necessary but apparently small children love to grab exposed headers…

This truck had quite a bit of modernization done to it, like the projectors and HID headlights. Not sure how I feel about it being updated so much but the owner did a great job doing it

This car is always at this event, to many when you mention Hot Rod this is exactly what they picture

Never seen this at any of the other Roadmates events, it was pretty cool and reminded me that I desperately need to go to the nostalgic drags one of these days

Interesting ’33, I believe it was an FG body but I’m not sure

I’m told the car just got out on the road this summer after the owner spared no expense building it

Don’t come across the Heidts IRS rear ends too often

This angle really shows just how aggressive the chop is, interesting build all around

  1. i love the black roadster with the flames, i think it would look better without the flames but not my car haha. i like how it dosent have a chopped windshield and the carb setup looks sick. glad to see more coverage of these older rides and your site is getting more and more diverse every time i look at it, great job i hate when people cant appreciate a car that they arent intimitley involved with great to see u keep an open mind.
