When the Gas Guzzlers Car Club and The Original Memories Car Club, both of the greater Milwaukee area, heard of all of the great things that will be happening at the Milwaukee Mile during ARCA Fest it was a no brainer for them to organize a huge event to add to the festivities.

“When we heard about ARCA Hot Rod Fest, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. This event has the potential to become one of the biggest events in the state and to hold the event inside of the Historic Milwaukee Mile is amazing in itself. We were able to visit with thousands of people at the World of Wheels last weekend and I’m hear to tell you, this is gonna be big and we are honored to be a part of it,” said Gas Guzzlers Vice President, Paul Adamec.

Gas Guzzlers Car Club and The Original Memories Car Club have organized the Hot Rod Show & Shine for all makes and models that will attract some of the coolest looking Hot Rods in the Midwest. All Hot Rod enthusiasts have the chance to be a part of this huge show.
