After today's ride, we went to San Rafael to the Hot Rod Show. Along with the usual 'Rods, there were two Jags I liked-An early 60's 3.8 with louvers on the hood and a Chevy 350 V8, fitted with valve covers that have been modified to fit that say Jaguar...Also, a '73 12 cylinder XKE fitted with a 700 horsepower Boss 429 Ford engine and wild body work-Enjoy the pics...

Thanks for sharing some great pics of some sweet rods! 8)

Love American car culture (hence the username :wink: ) and not so far removed from retro mtbs too. Yeti founder John Parker started and runs this car show, amongst others: http://www.primernationals.com/

Classic American cars are huge in Sweden, saw this on a recent ride:
