 The 250 car submission slots are filling up quickly. We’re beyond impressed with the quality as well as the depth and breadth of the hot rods and customs that have been entered thus far. From flathead-powered roadsters to sectioned shoeboxes, one thing’s for sure—it’s going to be difficult selecting just one car for a 10-plus page feature. We’ve included a handful of entries below.
