Can you think of a better way to kick-off a car show dedicated to 1972 and older vehicles than to have a “Thow-back Thursday” party? That’s exactly what happened this year at Pinkee’s Rod Shop in Windsor, Colorado, to kick off the three day 2014 Colorado Good Guys Nationals. Pinkee's Rod Shop, located just east of the Ranch Special Events Center where the Colorado Good Guys Nats takes place, was a perfect location to host this warm-up party. This “pre-car show car show” at Pinkee’s drew street rods, rat rods, classics, custom cars and muscle cars, which were parked for blocks around Pinkee's Thursday night June 5th, 2014.
Pinkee’s Rod Shop’s reputation was built on their metal fabrication work, building upper end cars in the $150,000 to $400,000 range. Most of their bodies incorporate original steel with hand-fabricated pieces grafted in. Many of Pinkee's finished cars have been trailered directly from the rod shop to national competitions such as the Colorado Good Guys Nationals, to become trophy-winning rods and customs. Since it can take up to two years for Pinkee’s to complete one of these creations, if you want a potential show-winning rod for the 2016 Good Guy’s car show, you better call Pinkee's today!
