National Hot Rod Show Is Back In Louisville +VIDEO


Editor's Note; The cars were as hot as the weather. Throughout the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center cars with soul were there for the ogling. From fully modified Hot Rods to familiar sedans from the 40's 50's and 60's, besides remaining alive the one thing they all have in common is the two-way love that each vehicle exudes..the owners LOVE them and in turn the cars give back their soul filled love. It's what's missing in today's mobility appliances...arguably we have traded soul for long-term reliability, was it worth it?
