Turns out a friend of a friend and his family have stepped up willing to "drive" The Hot Rod Shop. They are well qualified to do so having substantial experience in the racing world. More on that at a later date.

Business will continue as it has been only with a younger more energetic "crew". That should be great!

Talk with or see you soon...same location, same business hours.

Thanks for your continued support during the transition!
Stan

[08/28/20]   Stay tuned for big news!

[08/02/20]   Announcement from Stan to all my friends & customers.

After 22+ years of "driving" The Hot Rod Shop I realize it is time to move on to a more relaxing way of life. We have been through busy times & slow. One of the hottest summers on record (2012) as well as some cold, snowy & brutal winters too. Heck, we even made it through the Covid this year as busy as ever. Thanks to the best customers anywhere. Customers who most are really more friends than not...I will miss you all!

But that leaves The Hot Rod Shop without a "driver". Could it be you or maybe someone you know? It does take a lot of hard work, dedication, ingenuity & perseverance (not saying I am all of that but that's what it takes :) and you are not likely to get rich...although it is very rewarding 'owning" your life.

As with everything there is a deadline. This one is the end on the month, August 31st. Short notice I know but has to be.

Any questions feel free to call the store at 815-227-5424 but do not messenger me...I don't use it.

Sincerely,
Stan

[04/01/20]   A message to our friends and customers. As you know by now our state and country are now involved in the worldwide fight against CoronaVirus -19

. It is life threatening and we are learning more information on how it spreads everyday. Per guidance of the Emergency declaration by our State leaders we are halting daily physical operations until we receive communication it is safe to resume .

We can be reached by phone and email and are working on alternative methods of operation, although very limited at this time,

This is difficult and only see it as doing our part to aid in our community's fight to keep our citizens safe

. Our suppliers, business partners and our transportation system are all suffering this stress

Lets be clear... our customers and their families safety are our number one concern.


Our hope is you will join us in support of your fellow Americans in this time of need.
