The Hot Rod segment is no longer about the year the car was born. For the market to continue to grow, it's important that hot rodders open their minds to the thought that "hot rod" can be a broad definition no longer limited by model year.

Please help us as we define what a hot rod is, as the answer will play a critical role in the future of the industry and the HRIA. As members who are immersed in the industry and work on hot rods day in and day out, your input and feedback is critical.

Join us at HRIA's General Membership Meeting and Panel Discussion on May 17 at 10:00 a.m. PT, as we tackle the question of "How do you define a Hot Rod?" A panel of hot rod leaders will tackle the traditional definition of "hot rod", the emergence of EVs and where the tuner market and other similar communities fit in. 

A brief report on the council's current initiatives will also be discussed during the meeting. Register here.
