The Rev’n Rods & Heartland Music Tour presented by Chevrolet Performance is a great cruising event with the added bonus of a country music concert at each stop. We joined the event for several of the stops and found tons of great cars, lots of cool people, and a great overall feeling of hot rodding camaraderie.
The event, a thrilling combination of car shows, a driving tour and nightly concerts, kicked off in Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday, July 17. The Rev’n Rods & Heartland Music Tour will have additional daily stops in Southaven, Mississippi; Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Bowling Green, Kentucky; and Bean Blossom, Indiana before the final stop in Indianapolis on July 22, 2016.
Each day’s event features a car show complete with vendors, exhibits, food and beverages with admittance free to the general public. Every night ends with a ticketed concert featuring the legends of country music. Owners of hot rods, street rods, motorcycles and classic automobiles are encouraged to go on tour with Rev’n and Heartland for one stop or even the whole trip. Each registration includes two free nightly concert tickets per vehicle. The details for each location are listed below. Visit www.revntour.com for tickets and more information.

We love the fact that our Muscle Car Of The Week videos are shared amongst Muscle Car enthusiasts worldwide, but we recently were completely stoked to learn that our friends at www.drivesrt.com - you know, the official Chrysler and Dodge website where you build & buy such awesome cars as the Hellcat and Viper SRT - thought high enough of Muscle Car of the Week cars and videos to share them on their HOME PAGE! For car guys, there are few honors higher than being showcased on an auto manufacturer's website, especially one as cool as the SRT site! We have to thank The Brothers Collection for letting us shoot videos of their awesome cars, and a special shout-out to the crew and families of the Muscle Car of the Week team for putting up with our nonsense as we make this show!
This cool 1957 Chevrolet Nomad wagon might look like a completed restoration to some, but we're going to be doing a LOT of cool upgrades on this car in the coming months here on V8TV and in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. Plans call for some suspension, brake, wheel & tire upgrades, as well as a supercharged late-model driveline and a color change. We're thinking a 6.2 liter GM LSA engine and 6-speed transmission. It's going to be be a great project, and we'll be following it with a build thread on the V8TV Forum and in video for the V8TV Television and web shows. Stay tuned!
