Hot Rods Unlimited is proud to announce our charitable partner for 2022
Some of the times we feel most free is when we're behind the wheel, driving down the road on a beautiful day. There's nothing else like it.  While we're enjoying these carefree times, we should remember what makes America great, our military veterans and their service to our country. We are pleased to work toward raising money for this worthwhile charity throughout 2022.
