Happy New Year 2019 “Weekend update”

Welcome to 2019. We had a great year did a lot of good things for a lot of good people who needed the help. We lost a few good friends and gained a few as well it’s a great hobby and lifestyle. As long as I am upright and able to do it I will enjoy it and be grateful for the friends I’ve had because of it. So go out there and enjoy your New Year’s celebrations and be safe all you party animals and lets have a great New Year.

Happy New Year

Thanks from

Steve and all of us from Steve’s Hot Rod Garage

Here is something from Ken

We Really Do Like Verifiable Statistics

Happy New Year to all. There should be few excuses for not making this a great 2019. We all have “obstacles” but they are little more than just day to day life and should not upset us but just keep us going. Enjoy every minute you can…..No matter your age you are running out of time. Try something new this year and dare to tweak the way you have always done things for a better life experience. A couple days ago a good friend said, “I’m just not wired that way” when discussing wondering around a bit on road trips instead of pedal to the metal to reach a destination. Remember that ultimately we all have the same destination and that is the end of life as we know it, so experience all you can.

On another note: Hagerty Insurance sure gets a lot of information out there to collector car fans. I have no idea if we are getting a good deal or not on our premiums but it seems complaints about premiums or settlements through them are minimal. We may get busted for using some of their copyrighted information, but we are not doing anything but supporting them. Here are some interesting things:

These cars are the biggest winners and losers of the 2018 collector market

Merry Christmas Hot Rodders

I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for your patronage of Steve’s Hot Rod Garage and Desert Cruzin Website and Thank Everyone for the support. It really is important to me and my guys and gives us the opportunity to do the things we love and make a living at it.

We are in our 8th year and without Awesome Customers, Good Friends and a Great Team at the shop this would not be possible. We have some great plans for the shop and DC for the upcoming year stay tuned. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.

And yes this is all I have on the calendar this week. If I have missed something just let me know.

Barrelling Down on 2019. Get Your Shopping Done We Are Running Out Of Time.

Posted By  on December 20, 2018

Unbelievable all of the great things Collector Care/Special Interest Vehicle people have accomplished in 2018. I really wish there was just one main spokesperson for our hobby in the Desert Region to let all the people know just what it is you all do for everyone. We know just some of the things the Over The Hill Gang has done for the community around the Mesquite, Beaver Dam, Littlefield, Bunkerville, and Scenic Areas. We find out very little anymore regarding Cedar City & Parowan areas, Page & Big Water areas, Kanab and Hwy. 89 areas. Just around the St. George area we have trouble getting anyone to send in photos, flyers, or plans coming up. It may even be a break for us if Rodney King just moved up here somewhere to get everyone in the same book let alone on the same page. Ain’t gunna to happen folks.

Posted by Steve on December 20, 2018

To expand on what Ken said he had been doing this site and trying to get everyone’s events and shows and has also posted photos from shows, for years the amount of work to do this is hard to explain. We try to find everything we can to post if you have an event or photos you want posted just send them to desertcruzin@gmail.com. I took over the site in 2015 and the first of 2018 we had to redo the whole site we now have even more power to do the things we need to do and all the things Ken w0uld like to see this site do. Remember that you can see Kens site at the top bar or click on his name above his story.

If you know of anyone that should be recognised that we may have missed get me the info and we will fix that. We will have a few new things to add to the site this year. So if you have events or anything else you would like added to Desert Cruzin give us a call or send an email and let’s see how we can help.

I would assume since Tuesday is Christmas that Gears, Grub & Mud at Peggy Sue’s Diner in Mesquite is probably cancelled but I haven’t heard. But I have confirmed with Shane “Hot Rod Hangout” Cracker Barrel is good to go on Wed.
