At the GNRS, the indoors and Suede Palace delivered with some outstanding land speed racers, hot rods, rat rods and other assorted rolling pieces of art. But how can we forget the great outdoors?

From the front, this truck just looked like a cab on a chassis…

Venturing into the Galpin tent,  we came across a crazy VW…

Talk about a no-nonsense interior!

The classic roadster with a twist…

… we were delighted to find a Hemi under the hood (well, if it had a hood).  This year marks the 50th birthday of the Hemi, and this hot rod is celebrating in style!

And now for something a little different – a lifted Willys Truck. We are big fans of all things Willys, and this truck was no exception.
