Hacker’s Hot Rods & Customs Grand Opening & Car Show

Shop parties and informal hot rod gatherings are some of the best events around. They provide a relaxing environment for us gearheads to show off our rides and get better acquainted with our hot rodding brethren. The grub usually isn’t too shabby either.

On April 23, 2011, Dustin “Bud” Hacker, his lovely wife Jenna and his father Jeff Hacker opened the doors to their new shop, Hacker’s Hot Rods & Customs in Las Vegas. Dustin has had a wrench in his hand since he was knee-high to a workbench and was influenced by his dad when he was young with the camshaft-thumping and exhaust-cackling hot rod drug. Naturally, after years of polishing his fabrication skills, his desire to start his own shop became a dream that pushed some big numbers on the mental dyno.

With a freshly remodeled shop, the BBQ going strong and some brightly polished rolling metal art on display, it was a great day of bench racing at Hacker’s Hot Rods & Customs. For more information on Hacker’s restoration, fabrication and mechanical services, give them a call at 702.244.2335 or check them out on the web at (http://www NULL.hackershotrods
