And the hot rodding world is no different.
For generations, there have been hot rods, dragsters, customs and muscle cars that have powered their way to a legendary status. These are the cars and motorcycles that have made such an impression of ultimate design or performance upon an admiring audience that they are still held in great esteem.
Then there are the people who designed them, built them, raced them and made our lives richer for their efforts. These Heroes and Legends are the people who created the longing within us to follow their example and endeavours and to whom we owe much with respect.
And where would the hot rodding world be without the Heroes and Legends whose cars glided across the silver screen, graced the pages of comic books and entertained us on television. We may not be able to emulate their feats and actions but we can all admire their wheels and dream.
So, in recognition of all of these people and machines, WAHRP has chosen Heroes and Legends as the official show theme for 2018. We have a list of remarkable machines and inspirational people we are planning to have join us in June, along with all of those others who will turn up, some in costume, to be Heroes and Legends as well. What a weekend it’s going to be.
