Retro Rewind Dubuque 1/7/17

I Checked out the Retro Rewind Cars and Guitar Revival on Saturday in Dubuque.  It's sold as the teaser for the outdoor Vintage Torque Fest that occurs in Dubuque in May.  I've been to Torque Fest and this is definitely much smaller to fit in the Five Flags Arena.  But they had a great turnout in spite of the cold weather.  It was a large "Hot Rod"  crowd and it was fun just talking to people and checking out all the activities. It starts to get me wound up for spring.

There were quite a variety of motorcycles with a lot of un-restored originals or old customs.

Something for the kids complete with neons

 A lot of Rat Rods and customs (and PBR everywhere)


And after you check out the bikes there were various vendors to talk to, bands playing throughout the afternoon, the cool old theater was showing car and bike themed movies (I watched American Graffiti on the big screen, which took me back to my high school days when it first came out), and there were the magazine shoots going on with the several of the Pin-Up girls.
