Vintage Torque Fest
The Best Traditional Hot Rod, Custom, Vintage Cycle Show in Iowa!
Vintage Torque Fest is a fund raiser designed to help families that have children with congenital heart defects. Vintage Torque Fest is not the typical car show. This is a festival that brings together people from around the country that have a passion for keeping the traditions of the past alive. This means keeping the music, cars, clothes, and art alive. This is what Vintage Torque Fest is about. It is a festival that brings hot rods from around the country, artists from around the world, vendors from east and west coasts, and bands that have toured the world several times over into one location. This year we will get together in Dubuque, Iowa.
This is a different kind of car show – This show is about DRIVING.
Hot Rods are allowed to make exhibition laps on the dirt track.
International and national magazine coverage – Ol Skool Rodz, Traditional Rod & Kulture, Hot Rod, Cycle Source, Kustom, Hot Rod Deluxe, Powerglide, Pinstriping & Kustom Graphics, HOG, Rebel Rodz, Street Chopper, Car Kulture Deluxe, and DicE Magazine have been on site in the past. There has also been national television coverage as well. Most notably is My Classic Car with Dennis Gage.
