Every year tucked away in a small corner of Mississauga The Roadmates (One of Canada’s Oldest Hot Rod Clubs) hosts a corn roast for members and friends a like. This event has an atmosphere very similar to the Majestics/Luxrious BBQ making it another one of my favourite events of the season.
One of the elements that makes this event so enjoyable is that there is never any shortage of stories being tossed around by people who have been doing this whole car modification thing for longer than I’ve been alive.
This year a long time member told us quite a few stories of days gone by that he capped off with a story about his old low rider that was so close to the ground his wife had to get out of the car so he could enter and exit driveways. On occasion she even had to lend a hand by lifting the bumper of the car just that little bit so he could get over whatever hurdle happened to be in the way.
Eventually his wife got fed up with that so he built a more practical daily but damn it if wasn’t an amusing story.
