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.

Peroxide Blonde in a Hopped-Up Model Ford - Brian Setzer

Well I went out a cattin’ on a Friday night
I was dressed to kill, I wasn’t lookin’ for a fight.
I looked in the mirror, just a waitin’ for the light,
I saw a hot chick that really looked right.

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.
Now I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.

Well I pulled on over, she asked me for a ride,
She moved real close, side by side.
I looked out the window and to my surprise,
It was a hot rod Ford just a passin’ me by.

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.

Well we drove down Main, just to make a scene.
I barked my tire when the light turned green.
I slapped it to the floor, let out on the clutch.
What was left on the road, well it wasn’t very much.
We flew out of town, we were side by side,
Twin carburetors were open wide.
Tires that smoked, engine started to whine
I tell ya, that blonde left me way behind.

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down main once more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.
Now I’m never, never ever, draggin’ down Main no more,
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up Model Ford.
