The Symco Shakedown “traditional” hot rod show is JUST AROUND THE CORNER — both figuratively and literally. Held at the Union Thresherman’s grounds in Symco, Wis., just 11 miles east of Iola (home of Old Cars Weekly) the show dates are Aug. 13-14. If you want to see what promises to become one of the biggest rod shows in the Midwest – and a reflection of current hobby trends – mark those dates on your calendar.
And if you do come to the Symco Shakedown, also note that my new restoration & hobby shop – called Gunner’s Great Garage – is just two miles south of Symco on Highway 22. We’ll be cooking hot dogs for the hot rods, so stop in and take a look and gobble down a weiner.
