  • Eastwood Visits Hollywood Hot Rods and 2012 Street Rodder Road Tour Car

    You may remember that we announced about a month ago that we would be the Official Tool Sponsor of the 2012 Street Rodder Road Tour Car. This meant that the crew at Hollywood Hot Rods would be using our line of tools, from brake line tools to metal fabrication tools, they used it all! We recently had the opportunity to stop in and visit with Troy Ladd and his crew. We got the full tour and checked out the progress on the 40 Ford they were putting together for the 2012 Road Tour.

    Hollywood Hot Rods has been based in the Burbank area for a while now. Their location is in a part of town where you might not expect to see a hot rod or fabrication shop situated, but that's the beauty of Southern California. They make the most of their space and really pack it full of project cars! Just like their builds, everything had its well thought out place with each car being nestled into its own little piece of hot rod heaven. Everywhere you turned seemed to have a corner filled with more killer projects and tools, it was definitely overload of the senses for a custom car enthusiast!

    Finally we were able to check out the current status of the 40 Ford being built for the 2012 Street Rodder Road Tour. We had seen some spy photos of the chop being done to the roof of the car, but it was something else to see the finished product in person. With the help of some key Eastwood metal working tools like our Pro Hammer and Dolly Kit, Shrinker Stretchers, Bullseye Picks, Adjustable Profile Gauges, and many more they had the Drake body looking like it came from them with the chop. They really have chops down to a science and it showed with how flawless the metal work was!

    All in all it was a great trip and Troy and his crew were very gracious hosts, heck even the shop dog gave us a warm welcome and goodbye! We can't wait to see how the 40 Ford progresses and what other tricks Hollywood Hotrods and Street Rodder Magazine have in store for the car. Make sure you keep watching the blog for more updates on the 2nd annual Eastwood Summer Classic where you can see this very car in person!

    Check out the slideshow below for some of the highlights from our visit with Hollywood Hotrods!

  • Eastwood The Official Tools Sponsor of 2012 Street Rodder Road Tour Car

    Last year Street Rodder and Eastwood teamed together for the first annual Eastwood Summer Classic car show. The show was a huge success and it turned out to be one of the largest events the Street Rodder Magazine Road Tour encountered along the way.

    Jerry Dixey and the Street Rodder crew were so happy with everything that they invited us to host the kick-off event for their east coast leg of the 2012 tour! We are beginning to plan the details for the 2012 Summer Classic, and we hope to make it larger than last year!

    Each year Street Rodder works with sponsors to build a new car for every Road Tour. This year is no different. We are happy to announce that Eastwood has been added as the Official Tool Sponsor for the team at Hollywood Hot Rods building the 2012 car. The theme for this years car is "Building an old car with new parts". They picked a new reproduction '40 Ford Coupe Body from Bob Drake Parts and a custom chassis from FatMan Fabrications for the foundation of this build. They have some cool tricks up their sleeves and we are excited to see how it turns out!

    Stay tuned for more details on the Street Rodder Road Tour, the Eastwood Summer Classic, and sneak peaks of the car and what the guys at Hollywood Hot Rods have gotten themselves into!
