A relaxing day at Hotrodtoberfest
That was printed on the glossy, color promotional card for the 2011 Hotrodtoberfest, held in the White Oak Commercial Center parking lot in Gladstone over the weekend. That seems like a pretty decent description. This isn’t going to go down as one of the most epic gatherings in the history of car shows, but there were enough things around there to hold your attention.
I might know them better if I was a local drag racing insider, though. Their Facebook page has some pictures of some drag cars that they appear to take responsibility for, and some of those very cars were lined up at the show this weekend.
Others, like a brown ’76 Impala sedan, some of the later-model cars, or the unfinished projects, don’t seem to turn up as often.
And even though it wasn’t a massive turnout, it was still strong enough that I managed to take more than 100 photos. And, as usual, you can check them out in the slideshow below.
