Welcome to 2020!

Well if you are reading this you survived 2019 and Welcome to 2020. I have heard of several events that sound fun this year both in and out of town. And then of course there are all our local favorites. A lot of new cars and trucks have come out over the last year and that is always awesome. No matter what you like you will always find something. We look toward a great New Year. New friends, Old friends and lots of Bitchin car stuff. See Ya There.

I just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone about a new dog groomer in town it’s not everyday I take time to recommend a business. But this girls name is Kami Sumner she has been certified through the National Dog Groomers Association of America for the last 15 years. She has been doing this in Roosevelt for sometime before moving here with her family. And really loves what she does and does a great job. That really makes the difference in how our furry little family members are treated and feel about going to get something done they don’t really want done. We are dog people too so we know how important it is to find someone that really cares about them.

They have worked hard getting her new shop set up. Here is a link to her Facebook page CLICK HERE .  She loves Cars, Big Trucks and Dogs how can you go wrong. So take your little hairy friends and see what’s up at her new shop. At 1330 W Sunset Blvd Unit M 435/375/8258.  Tell her you saw this ad for her special HOT ROD discount.

Gettin Ready For The Holiday Season

“Hot Rod Hangout” will be moved to Tuesday next week the day before Christmas and the same the next week on New Years Day Tuesday instead of WEDNESDAY. 

Then back to the usual schedule. All the fund raisers lately have all done well and were well put together and I would personally like to thank everyone for all the hard work. To benefit our protectors and those less fortunate among us.

Car folks is good folks and I know all the people who put these events together really appreciate the support. Thanks to Shane, Don, Darrin, Jim, Owen, John, & Julian and  everyone that showed up to all these events to help or attend and contributed without you none of this would be possible.

I would also like to take a minute to say goodbye to the friends lost some moved away and some moved on either way you will be missed, and new the friends who have joined us throughout the year welcome I hope you enjoy our little group. Should you need or want help or info ask anyone of us and I am certain you will find what you need. This is a great bunch of folks.

Personally I would like to thank everyone for their support. I have lived in St George for 20 years and this next year 2020 marks our 10th year at Steve’s Hot Rod Garage. And without the support and patronage of our friends and their awesome cars we would have never made it. So many of you have supported us and I sincerely can’t thank you enough.

We have a great bunch of people who love what they do and are really good at it, My guys and all our families would like to personally Thank everyone for allowing us to do what we love and wish you all Happy Holidays and Happy Motoring.

I took over Desert Cruzin website from our illustrious leader Ken Kay. A few years ago and we have all heard how much time it took to maintain this website well that’s a bunch of BS. It’s way more work than he let on. I really try to get to all the events and give them the coverage they deserve it’s not always possible but I try.

I do all the work on the site with the exception of the posts I plagiarize from Kens My Atrium site. Thanks Buddy he always seems to do one when I need it the most great timing. I really do enjoy the site if anyone ever wants to write a post let me know and we will see what ya got. And if you have any ideas you would like to see on the site let me know and I will see if its something we can do.

I would like to wish everyone a safe and prosperous New Year.

Steve Nielsen.  Steve’s Hot Rod Garage

Season’s Greetings, Seasons Greetings, or Just Happy Holidays?

Haven’t heard from Ken Kay in a while so I used his latest p0st below. Thanks Ken.

However you want to sum it up this is a great time of year unless you allow all the possible stresses get to you. Mostly for this aging group it is more something like, “Darn, I think that tire is a bit low”, “Dang thing won’t start”, or “I thought you got gas.” Usually the reply to that last one is, “Yeah, I think I ate too much.” What a fun group car people can be. For the next three weeks how about we just try walking around singing, “On the good ship lollipop.” A little side note: Thanks Shane, Don, Darrin, Jim, Owen, John, & Julian.
