125 Good Reasons to Show Your Car

there are many more good reasons besides these.  we are a non profit organization and the proceeds we make over operating costs go to various charities.  our sole concession The Lions Club of Northern Clermont County does the same.  between us, many good causes are supported.  and because you make it possible by attending, we are able to do it.  each year we continue to try to improve the show by making positive changes to the facility and our programs.  did you know that there are only 50 Fastiques member families?  that's a fact and the majority of people you meet working at the show are volunteers.  we would like to thank some of our friends for they continued support; some volunteers from The Hoodlum Alley Boys and the Cincy Street Rodders to name a few.  there are many others who work with us to make the show as safe and pleasant as possible; the Clermont County Sheriff's Dept.,  the Ohio Highway Patrol and the Clermont County Fair-board.  the list could go on and on.

Get Your Mind BLOWN at the Pumpkin Run

i don't want to sound politically incorrect but driving isn't all about MPH.  as you can tell, these babies are not "Hybrids".  got a vehicle '70 or older, join us at the show and make some noise.  we have a great DJ but he can't play a tune like these guys.

A Good Ending for a Good Year

Sunday, December 5th the Fastiques Rod & Custom car club based in Owensville held its annual banquet. Each year the club honors the many volunteers who help make its event, the Pumpkin Run Nationals, possible.  Fastiques is a non profit organization comprised of fifty member families.  Proceeds from the Pumpkin Run Nationals benefit many charities.  This year a check for $50,000 was presented to Shriners Burns Hospital for Children.  To date, over $670,000 has been donated to the hospital by the club.  A check for $3,000 was given to Earth Angel, an Ohio based group who give dream vacations for terminally ill children. 

More information about Fastiques Rod & Custom and the Pumpkin Run Nationals can be found at our website

Good Ole Days

the "good ole days" have never left.  once a year they reappear at the Pumpkin Run (thanks to Dan Shaw).  this picture was taken last week, not last century.  want to see some real antiques?  visit the Fastiques at the Pumpkin Run Nationals next year.  our cars are old but our hearts are young.
tell 'em that Phil sent you!

good time and some good humor

some people just have too much fun at the show. after all the years of being a part of it, and just when i thought that i have seen it all, there is always something new. these guys actually drove around the show jamming with a serious sound system and passing ice cream treats to all the kids that they passed.
