Jalopyrama Hot Rod Show Motates to Maryland
If you have ever wanted to relive that vintage 50s-60s indoor car show experience the Jalopyrama Hot Rod Show is the event to attend. And judging by the pictures and post-event buzz, Jalopyrama 2017 was the best yet. The brainchild of Mike Szuba, Jalopyrama is a collective effort with organizational help coming from the Rusty Nuts Hot Rod Group. Better yet – show proceeds go to The William E. Kahlert Regional Cancer Center at Carroll County Hospital and The ARC of Carroll County.
One of our favorite pastimes is seeing cars in motion, so our day was off to a great start with the Friday morning reliability run before the attendees were allowed to set up in the agricultural center. We took a nice leisurely cruise though the country side, passing local farms along the way with a stop at a restored railway station. The visuals were stunning!
We also found every type of power plant represented here, from Y-blocks to Nailheads, Flatheads to Hemi’s. One Deuce even had an early Chevy ll 4-banger under the hood.
If you’re into traditional hot rods and customs, put the Jalopyrama on your list and take heart in knowing that you’re not only having a good time with hot rod friends, you’re helping fight and treat cancer patients.
