Hot Rod & Restoration Trade Show in Indianapolis


 The annual Hot Rod & Restoration Trade Show took place this week in Indianapolis. I had not been to the event before, but since a few of California Car Cover's customers were going to be there, I figured I would take a few days to see the event. The show was held at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown.

The main entrance


The show featured a number of hot rod performance and accessory companies, plus plenty of hot rods and muscle cars. It was nice to see some classic cars from the Midwest.

There were plenty of muscle cars on display.


Very clean Ford Bronco restoration















Probably my favorite car at the show was this 1939 Chevy Coupe. It was converted to a 3 window, had a 348 engine under the hood and custom interior.


Anyone have a General Motors Beaumont in the garage? The 1969 Beaumont was based on the Chevy Chevelle and sold as a General Motors vehicle in Canada.



The show was not a huge event, but I enjoyed visiting with customers and suppliers. Check back next week for coverage from more car shows and California Car Cover updates.
