Traditional Hot Rod Show

Garage71 & Grease Inc. have been noted as a creative producer when it comes to a Traditional Hot Rod Show and Motorcycle Show.

Our shows focus on the story behind the build. We look past beauty or rust, and see if there is a past with your ride. Though we appreciate all years, makes and models, our shows represent Pre’ 71 vehicles. Any ride may join and be a part of the show, but our judging will be based on the listed criteria.

Our one-of-a-kind show takes an approach that looks at builds from an artist & builder perspective. Those who spend time on building, fabricating, and creating their own rides are more successful in our show! We want to see your ride come to lifeā€¦ It doesn’t matter if there are oil leaks or not (prefer not), we want to see your ride.

We will be working with builders and regional car clubs on this show. They will be building and creating one-of-a-kind hand built trophies for each class to be announced as we draw closer to the show. We will be looking at including top industry brands to our sponsor list and getting them involved in the show.

We will feature the Best of Rockin Route 66 in a feature in Grease Inc. magazine, a nationwide Kustom Kulture lifestyle magazine. The feature will highlight the ride, the builder(s), the event, and the Road Trip to Tucumcari, New Mexico, for the festival.

There is a $20 registration fee for any vehicle entering the show, and includes a weekend music entertainment pass for Saturday night concerts at the Convention center. We will have special VIP parking for all rods throughout the entire event at the Route 66 Museum. You may purchase your early bird tickets by clicking here. Do not delay and get your ride signed up for the most anticipated show of the year!

We want to thank the Brewsers CC for their support in managing the car show portion of Rockin’ Route 66 in conjunction with the assistance of the Boy Scouts of America

This festival is partially supported by the Lodger’s Tax Board of the City of Tucumcari. A portion of the show will be donated to the Route 66 Museum. It is our goal to give back to the local community as well as support the history of Route66. You may also make an additional donation to support the museum by clicking here.
