Default SW MO Hot Rod 100

One of the first area events I have enjoyed participating in during spring is the SW MO Hot Rod 100 Reliability Run. The weather was forecasted to be perfect, and the turnout was tremendous. The Run is primarily that – a chance to drive through the countryside in your old car with a bunch of other like-minded enthusiasts and take in some fantastic scenery (http://www.hotrodhundred.com/sw-missouri.html). Since our part of the state includes a significant portion of Route 66 we often get to ride on parts of the original Mother Rode, just as we did yesterday. The organizers aim the event at pre ’64 cars, but later ones seem to be welcomed as well. Over 250 cars showed up for the Saturday morning driver’s meeting in Springfield, MO where we got directions and a general briefing. Many TriFives were on hand for the event – I wondered if there were any other from the forum that attended… While I was walking though the cars before we headed out I came across this interesting interpretation of a pickup using ’57 fenders for bed sides, with a couple other TriFives in the background:

We were cautioned that some of the towns we would be going through had probably not seen as many cars in one day as they would when we caravanned though – judging by the people standing out in their front yards taking pictures as we went by that was surely the case. It was a beautiful day and drive. For a while we were following a nice 55 sedan, and later a trio of 40-41 Ford Tudors:

It was designed to be a relaxing 100-mile drive, and it was certainly that; but anyone who has driven a pre-war car with a chopped windshield will tell you it’s a little more of a chore to enjoy the scenery along the way:

We had a stop off for a shop tour of Hot Shoe Hot Rods in Mt. Vernon MO and a stretch of the legs enroute. We wound up in the Crane, MO City Park where I found a spot to park under a Red Bud tree just blooming out. We were fed perhaps the best BBQ pork meal I’ve ever had. All told we drove the ’38 over 250 miles for a 100-mile event – a nice warm up for the trips already planned for this summer. JR

Great pictures. Waiting for the N. Texas 100 to be scheduled. I enjoyed the last one I attended.
