Gent brings you several highlights from The Rumblers Hot Rod Hooligans, 11th annual Kustom Kills and Hot Rod Thrills Car Show. The show is an annual summer event held in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. The Hooligans and other Hot Rod car clubs within the Northeast / New England region make their way to this section of Brooklyn, and park their classic and custom creations under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway for all to see.
This year, the cutoff year for a car to be featured in this year’s show is 1964. That doesn’t mean that those with later models are excluded from the fun. They usually park in satellite areas of the event garnering their share of visitors.
These cars aren’t simply over-the-top classics with pretty paint and trick wheels. Each car reflects its own unique personality and style, are both an expression and extension of its owner, and a tribute to bygone eras. If you’re lucky, you’ll stumble across a beautiful woman showcasing her pin-up style. Ask nicely and she’ll take a photo next to one of the customs.
