Each year the enterprising crew at WA Hot Rod Promotions come up with a theme for the show. This year’s theme is Heroes and Villians and the challenge will be on for individuals and clubs to depict this theme in their vehicle, displays and even in costume.
“No matter what world you inhabit, we all have our Heroes and Legends and the hot rodding world is no different,” explains Les Smith from WAHRP.
“For generations, there have been hot rods, dragsters, customs and muscle cars that have powered their way to a legendary status. These are the cars and motorcycles that have made such an impression of ultimate design or performance upon an admiring audience that they are still held in great esteem.”
“Then there are the people who designed them, built them, raced them and made our lives richer for their efforts. These Heroes and Legends are the people who created the longing within us to follow their example and endeavours and to whom we owe much with respect.”
“And where would the hot rodding world be without the Heroes and Legends whose cars glided across the silver screen, graced the pages of comic books and entertained us on television. We may not be able to emulate their feats and actions but we can all admire their wheels and dream.”
The West Australian Hot Rod and Street Machine Spectacular will run from June 16-17, 2018 at the Claremont Showground. Entries are open now, more show information can be found at wahotrodshow.com.au or by calling 08 9495 1932.
