  • Welcome to a new year

    We have fallen behind a bit on our website, and we apologize.  But, we have a new year in front of us, some new members, and some new cars.  Be sure to check back as we will be updating our calendar, not just with the shows we will be hosting or attending, but with all shows we know of.  We will be adding new galleries of past Romin’ the Island Car Party car shows, as well as past HOtrod HOliday HOedown Christmas parties.

    Our facebook page gets updated a bit more often, so be sure to check that out too.

    Thanks for checking us out, and cheers to a new hot rod season!


  • WOW!!

    You guys have blown us away again! The HOt rod HOliday HOedown was an even better success then we ever could have imagined. You raised a total of $2255 and thousands in food and toy donations for An Angels Touch!! We can’t thank you enough. You have put smiles on many faces this holiday season.

    On behalf of the Romin’ Chariots Car Club, and An Angels Touch,

  • HOt rod HOliday HOedown!

    It’s that time again.  The HOt rod HOliday HOedown has returned to Eagles Bowl!  Get those dancin’ shoes out because the Cadillac Casanova’s will once again be playin’ all the 1950′s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rockabilly hits you know and love, including Buddy Holly, Elvis, The Everly Brothers, and more!  We will again have a great throwback mixed drink and beer menu, some great vendors to grab some last minute gifts, raffles, FREE bowling after 11pm, and more!

    The HOt rod HOliday HOedown is a great family friendly party, but more importantly it is a food and toy drive for a great charity, An Angels Touch.  Formed in 1991, they assist working-class families in times of need. They recognize that misfortunes such as illness, job lay-offs and other unpredictable events can occur at any time and can be devastating to those involved. An Angel’s Touch therefore endeavors to bring comfort to those in need, whether by gifts of food, clothing, toys or other material comforts.

    We are glad to partner up with them again this year, and to be able to help local families in times of need.  Last year, with your help, we raised over $500 cash, and THOUSANDS in food and toy donations!!

    Cost is $10, and donations are encouraged.

    The list of needed items is HERE.
