This Saturday, July 19th, Brookville Roadster is hosting their 5th Annual Open House and Car Show at their headquarters in Brookville, Ohio. The company’s been manufacturing early Ford steel reproduction parts for 42 years, and they’re probably best known for their Model A and Deuce roadster and three-window coupe bodies and chassis. To show some customer appreciation, they’ve lined up an afternoon of fun that includes shop tours, a hot rod and custom show, and even an appearance by Aaron Kaufman and KC Mathieu of Discovery Channel’s “Fast N’ Loud.”
Brookville staff will host shop tours all afternoon, where you’ll explore their impressive manufacturing plant where all those fresh steel bodies are pressed and assembled (check out TRJ #41 for a sneak peek at their facility). Outside, cars entered in the show by 11:30am are eligible for a variety of awards including a Top 20 pick and the Ray Award, named after Brookville founder Ray Gollahon. Car show entry is just $20, and proceeds benefit the Ray Gollahon Scholarship Fund. For more information, visit www.brookvilleroadster.com. And if you’re anywhere near southwestern Ohio this weekend, be sure to stop by and check out the show.
A few years back we stopped by Brookville in the TRJ Roadster and shot their facility in b&w. Here are a few shots from previous years shows as well as our visit.
