Traditional hot rods are the coolest, and amongst traditional hot rod shows, the Hardcore Happening in LeRoy, NY is quickly becoming one of the best.
The event is the brainchild of Old Soul Hot Rod Shop proprietor Jesse Coots, a young guy with a passion for old-school, home-built hot rods. Now the gathering is in its 9th go-round, featuring nothing but pre-1962 hot rods, customs and motorcycles.
The site is at Coots’ Old Soul Hot Rod Shop on 9787 Linwood Rd., LeRoy, New York, not far from Rochester, and about an hour east of Buffalo.
Expect tons of cool cars and motorcycles, a live band, a bonfire and even camping at the event, all for just $15, which even includes a meal ticket.
There’s a super video from last year’s event that makes us want to jump in the car and head six hours west. If you’re in the area and plan to attend, fill us in on some of the details when you get home.
