Red Dirt Rodz 66 Corvette Takes Honors at 2014 SEMA Show

The Red Dirt Rodz crew recently unveiled their latest creation, a 1966 Corvette coupe at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. After an intensive 8-month build, the project resulted in a top-ten finish, as the Corvette was named one of the Top Ten Hottest Hot Rods of SEMA by Yahoo! Autos. “Being included in […]

Hey Ma, we’re on TV!

The RDR Road Runner was featured on the Lokar Car Show TV show on Velocity channel a couple of weeks ago. We didn’t find out until after it had aired, but we do have a link to the episode on YouTube. The segment begins at minute 8:20, and runs through 9:50.

Road to Vegas: An Epic Journey Part 4

(If you are just joining us on our journey, be sure to read Part 1 here, Part 2 here, and Part 3 here.) With the car coming together, the biggest bombshell had yet to fall, but with only 2 weeks to the show, it was coming. 12 days before the Road Runner was to be […]

Road to Vegas: An Epic Journey Part 3

(If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, start at the beginning here. Part 2 can be found here.) Red Dirt Rodz is a small shop, we build one or two custom cars each year, with lots of smaller projects in the middle. We don’t have a full-time painter, but we do have several that we […]

Road to Vegas: An Epic Journey Part 2

(If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, you need start at the beginning of the journey–here.) I should have known it was going to be one of those builds the day we pulled the carpet out. The car was sold as a mild restoration, everything was there, it was super clean, and it ran well. […]

The Road to Vegas: An Epic Journey Part 1

Now that we have had time for some R&R (Recovery and Reflection) I want to take the next several days to share our epic journey with the ’69 Roadrunner to Vegas and the granddaddy of all the shows SEMA. Along the way, we hit a lot of bumps and overcame many obstacles and I found […]

SEMA Day 3 Recap

Today, we spent some time looking at cool new products, and by far, the coolest thing we saw was the Berserker active shock management system from Viking Performance. This changes the game for all the non-active suspension system cars that road race. The Berserker is a derivative of a more complex military application, allowing the […]

SEMA 2013 Day 2 recap!

There was a convention center, a lot of cars, and a bunch people. Yeah, that about sums it up. After the show closed, however, things got interesting. The Red Dirt Rodz crew, along with some of the Motorama Live folks, went to have some dinner at Vamp’d, Danny Coker’s restaurant club, where we caught a […]

Day 1 of SEMA Recap

Today was the first day of 4 long-ass days. With a crowd around it all day, the Roadrunner has bottlenecked traffic on the sidewalk. We will soon have a full feature on the Roadrunner, but that will come later. The day began with the New Products Awards, with Dave McClelland as MC. The voice of […]

Red Dirt Rodz Crashes Count’s Kustoms in Vegas

The RDR crew had the pleasure of being invited to check out the facilities at Count’s Kustoms in Las Vegas. I have to say it is quite expansive. The grounds cover several buildings, with some really cool builds in progress. They even had some of my personal favorites from the show on site, including the […]
