Hot Rod Hill Climb participants!!
What is the Tech Inspection about?
It’s another set of eyes on your car.
The Colorado Springs Rod and Custom Club volunteered to do the inspections for Hot Rod Hill Climb 2013, and they have been doing it every year since. Its a great place to see the cars up close!
What these guys offered to do for HRHC, was look over the cars for anything that might be unsafe or questionable.
The club uses the NSRA inspection guidlines on all the cars. Most of the cars do not pass that, because they do not have wipers, etc. But the club gets credit for the inspections. It helps them out, helps the car owner out, and gives me piece of mind.
It’s really just another set of eyes on the car, we’ve had loose radius rods out back, broken welds on the frame, loose king pins, a few weak throttle springs, and tie rods that were too low for the road.
The hill is no joke… its a climb.
Emergency brakes are highly recommended, just in-case you need it, safety.
That’s about it.
If you are not in the Hot Rod Hill Climb, and just want your car inspected, the crew will be at the KOA on Friday 10am-4pm, these guys are happy to do it for you.
WOW, What an honor! Our pal Travis at Roy Boy Productions covers nearly every kick ass show in the country, and his wrap up for 2016 is AWESOME! Looks like Hot Rod Dirt Drags and Hot Rod Hill Climb made the top 10 list of most viewed albums! Hot Rod Hill Climb was #1 and Hot Rod Dirt Drags was #10… Book Ends Baby!
Seems even MSN likes what we do, here’s a great article I missed from the 2015 Hot Rod Hill Climb!
After an overnight downpour, Mike “Nick” Nicholas and his trusty crew were up early and greeted with chilly temps in Georgetown, Colorado, to prep for his latest rendition of the Hot Rod Hill Climb (HRHC). And at 8,500 feet above sea level, the weather can be unpredictable in the mountain town, but luckily the overnight deluge gave way to blue bird skies in the a.m. and welcomed an eager bunch of hot rodders, ready to take on the 1,000 foot rise of Leavenworth Mountain.

Over the last three years, the Georgetown Hot Rod Hill Climb – which was originally run in 1953 and 1954 – saw a new chapter open in the same Colorado mountain town as its ancestral event . After nearly six decades of slumber, the event was revamped in 2013 as The Hot Rod Hill Climb, by Mike Nicholas of Nick’s Hot Rod Garage, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the all-out, traditional hot rod race. ….read more
