Our friend Kristin Cline came the the 2015 Hot Rod Hill Climb and had this to say….
Chances are you’ve been to a car show or two (or three, or hundreds if you’re like me). Car shows are awesome – but do you know what is even better? Driving cars… hearing their engines and racing them! If you’re with me on this, then Hot Rod Hill Climb is a vintage car event you’ve got to see. As talked about in our Hot Rod Hill Climb coverage from last year, a bunch of Colorado hot rodders in the ‘50s decided they needed an event of their very own. The tiny village of Georgetown allowed them to take it over once a year and open up the throttle on Guanella Pass heading out of town. The ~1.5 mile course up the mountain is steep enough to give these nostalgic hot rods a run for their money and to designate bragging rights for the quickest car. Of course, back then just as today, getting together and enjoying hot rods was reason enough.
