2010 Chili Bowl and The Hot Rod Garage

Posted by admin March - 15 - 2010 - Monday

On January 13 through January 16, I made my 7th consecutive trip to the O’Riley Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is definately one of the most unique racing venues in the United States, with nearly 300 of the best dirt track midget racers from across the U.S. and around the world coming together to put on a 5 day indoor festival of speed. The whole thing culminates in a 50 lap championship race on Saturday evening.

The Chili Bowl Racing action happens every evening leaving hard core cars guys looking to entertain themselves during the day. One of our favorite daytime activities is to hunt down and visit local speed and hot rod shops. The crown jewel of our 2010 Chili Bowl daytime activities was to visit a shop called The Hot Rod Garage. Here we found a unique rod under construction which will no doubt be in every major car magazine when completed. It is a Marmon roadster, which is roughly 150% the size of a ’32 Ford roadster. The original Marmon wood wheels were scanned and duplicated and cut out of billet aluminum. This hot rod roadster will be stunning!

Speaking of 1932 Fords… The Hot Rod Garage had an amazing collection of vintage ford roadsters and coupes. Here are some of them.
