Who Needs Football When You Have Cool Cars at Hillco?

In Hillco’s annual event of year 2016, a lot more people decided to put on their gearhead hats before their gridiron helmets. About 350 vehicles filled the lots in front of the Hillco buildings facing the street and all the parking around the store. Classic cars were still driving by at 11:00! Hillco Fasteners has established its own Super Sunday tradition of opening their stores for their customers to come visit before the big game. A throng of enthusiasts, friends and customers took advantage of their hospitality.

As usual, it was a very eclectic collection of vehicles ranging in age from 1910s to new domestics and import cars, race cars, off-road cars, muscle cars, customs, hot rods, motorcycles, traditional rods, and Euros! Plus Hillco had a raffle and a 50/50 with the proceeds going to charity. If you weren’t there, come next year, but make it early!
