Burnin' Rubber on The Grapevine's Annual Hot Rod Special!

Once a year, and only once a year, The Grapevine tops off that '62 Cadillac Coupe De Ville convertible...aqua blue on the outside...cream colored leather on the inside...seats as big as sofas, and hits the road in search of the sounds that were "boss" back in the day.  We make no apologies in paying homage to the time when top fuel gasoline was cheap, full-blown Detroit engines were huge and the call of burnin' rubber on the asphalt was not only cool...but loud and clear!
