48 Cars in 48 States #39 : Maryland

After leaving Traditional Metal Craft in Milton, DE my Maryland host Bob McCreary and I headed west towards eastern Maryland. We stopped in at the East Coast Hot Rod Garage for a visit. Some amazing projects under construction there, plus a ton of plaques on the wall with former features in such publications as The Rodder’s Journal.

48 Cars In 48 States : The Great American Road Trip – A 48 state road trip with a stop in each state to photograph a traditionally styled hot rod, kustom or drag vehicle. Daily updates will be posted here on royboyproductions.com so you can see where I’ve gone, who I’ve met, some of what I’ve seen. At the end of the trip I’ll produce a 200 page full color book of the entire adventure. You can pre-order the book here!

Then the next day we explored a bit of the eastern side of Maryland and enjoyed some fresh seafood before shooting photos of the roadster that is in his garage. I hesitate to call it his because quite frankly he is adamant that he is just the care taker for this car.

It was rescued from a local garage, and purchased from the original owner of the hot rod. It had been partially disassembled so that it could be unchannelled, then life got in the way and the car sat for 50 years. Bob put the car back together the way the photos show it back in the old days and it’s that way to this day.

Labor Day Weekend in KC is all about the Greaserama. Held out at the fairgrounds in Tracy, MO, it’s a great time with amazing cars, bands, artists, and people.

One of my favorite shows in the last few years has been Pistons And Paint in Denton, TX each November. Put it on your list!
