2015 Indianapolis Hot Rod Shop Show

Wow....we have always looked forward to what was formerly the Hot Rod and Restoration Show in Indianapolis. However this year, the event had a name change, "Hot Rod Shop Show" and took a turn for the worse. The show was down-sized from previous years, it was only about 1/3rd the size of the event from two years ago, and the quality of vendors really suffered as well. Vendors for the "hot rodder" were almost nonexistent, replaced with several aisles of aftermarket "pickup" truck related vendors...i.e. bumpers, winches, plastic fender flares, bed liners, bed covers, and vinyl decals. Many what a DISAPPOINTMENT.

The only thing that saved us from a wasted hour drive to the event was some of the "featured vehicles", but even those were not of the caliber of previous years.
