It’s tough for me to imagine, however the Sizzling Rod Revolution might be turning 15 years previous subsequent September. The Cochrans and Tardels cooked up the primary present within the little city of Penngrove, Ca. again in 2006 specializing in high quality over amount, and issues solely acquired higher from there. I used to be fortunate sufficient to carry a automotive to the ’06, ’07 and ’09 exhibits (2008 was cancelled) since they had been simply an hour’s drive away from me. The Revolution for 2010 moved out to the Seaholm Energy Plant in Austin, which was completely superior, and probably some of the photographic areas for a scorching rod present I can think about. The 2011 and ’12 exhibits moved to Camp Mabry which I sadly missed as life simply acquired busier, however I do know these had been wonderful as effectively. Then got here come crap climate in 2013 and the brand new location of historic Gruene by no means occurred… The Revolution was cancelled.
Why am I bringing all this up? Properly let’s be trustworthy, 2020 is just about a wash for any stay automotive gatherings, so we’re all setting our sights on 2021. If we might simply persuade Ryan and Keith to fireside up this wonderful present only one extra time for a particular gathering, I’d be there once more with bells on. How bout you?
