“All motorheads welcome.”

That’s what it says on the flyers for the new Hot Rod Hangouts, and it pretty much says it all.


The hangouts, organized by the new Jems and Jalopies Motor Club, are similar to another new auto-related event in Perham, the Classic Cruise-Ins, except the hangouts are open to any and all vehicles, not just the classics.
