Another rumbling year at the expo center and on the streets!
One weekend of ever April is the yearly take-over of classic cars, hot rods, and rat rods. The streets in south Austin are rumbling! Each year some of the world’s best custom cars, restored classics, and other modified gas powered creations travel to the southern state of Texas. It has got to be the best hot rod show on earth! Check out the photos and videos below.
It’s not uncommon to see vintage and custom cars driving around Austin, particularly on south Congress. They rumble onto the scene and somehow always score a great parking spot. But every year, the local scene is handed over to thousands of tons of vintage steel. The schedule for this event hardly needs be checked because it’s an obvious change of regular traffic. If you venture to any of the downtown streets of Austin, you’ll notice the increased number of vintage cars and trucks. When you see that, it’s time to check the expo center and South Congress street.
