So for the past few years we have been hearing about a great rally called Torque Fest. And we’ve never been able to attend due to other events that were always conflicting. Well this year we were determined to go, so we loaded up and headed up to Maquoketa, Iowa.

The vibe at Torque Fest is all about pre-65 no billet traditional style hot rods and bikes. There is a real garage built feeling to the event that really shines through; there aren’t a lot of trailer queens rolling around.

If you participate in the show you get your chance to take laps on the dirt track, where you will see hot rods of all shapes and sizes sliding through corners and performing all manner of debauchery out on the track. There are good bands, good food and great people, to top it off its all for a great cause. All gate proceeds go to Helping Hanna’s Heart.

If that’s not enough to get you to check out next year’s show, take a look at our video and see what we found.
