We just got word there might be some trouble at the show this year. Seems like the Bandit might be parking his car inside for safe keeping and we are told that Sheriff Buford T. Justice might be in hiding around the corner waiting for him to return!
Our annual reunion is to induct Pioneers, Legends and Rising Stars into our Southwest Missouri Drag Racers Hall of Fame!
We are honored to have VooDoo Larry and his VooDoo Sahara at the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday show.
“VooDoo” Larry Grobe started building cars in his driveway when he was 18 years old. Fast forward 25 years and VooDoo Larry can be found at his 4,500 square feet shop full of kustoms and hot rods, VooDoo Larry Kustoms , located in Schaumburg, Illinois
VooDoo Larry Kustoms handles complete frame up builds to turning a daily driver into a mild kustom perfect for hitting the cruise-ins and car shows. One thing is for certain, VooDoo Larry puts his heart and soul into every build and modification.
VooDoo Larry’s newest kustom creation, a Golden Sahara “Recreation” is a tribute to the Barris Kustoms restyled Golden Sahara. It started life as a 1954 Kaiser Manhattan parts car he had at his shop. Larry had been dreaming about doing this project for many years and decided that the build was going to have styling elements from both versions of the original Golden Sahara, but with a VooDoo twist to create his version called the “VooDoo Sahara”. In true VooDoo Larry fashion, he pulled it off flawlessly and the VooDoo twists are ever present and period perfect!

Then bring your Valve Cover Racer to the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday show on Saturday, December 4th to race. Each racer will be randomly placed in a bracket format, and then the race is on to find the 3 Fastest Valve Cover Racers!
Building a Valve Cover Racer can be as simple or complex as you can dream up. The simplest and easiest design uses a valve cover, some plywood for the base and rolling gears from an old skateboard. Don’t be afraid to put your personality into the design and paint job.
Awards will be handed out for the 3 Fastest, the slowest and the Coolest looking! There is NO Cost to race your Valve Cover racer once inside the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday show.
Vehicle registration for the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday is now OPEN.

This was made by a group of guys who had their vehicles in the show(Envious Films). This was not made by Hot Rod Holiday nor was Envious Films paid by us to do this. They did this for fun and to help promote the show. We think they did a great job of capturing the essence of the show and for that we thank them!
