Draggins Rod and Custom Car Show

This year, on Easter Weekend (April 10th and 11th), get up off the couch and come to the 60th Annual Draggins Rod and Custom Car Show in Saskatoon. Featured this year is a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner that is pretty much the rarest Roadrunner on the Planet! Current owner Tracy Kurtzinger, from Dana, Saskatchewan, had heard rumours about a 1970 Hemi Roadrunner convertible in Canada for years. Depending on the source, there were either three or four Hemi Roadrunner convertibles made in 1970. Only one was destined for Canada! One day he decided to track the car down. The rest is Canadian Barn Find History. In 2016, Kurtzinger found and purchased the car. He also traced the car’s history – a history that he did not really expect. A history of owners who believed the car should stay in Canada regardless of price. Under Kurtzinger’s eagle eye, the car was restored, using as much and as many of the original parts as possible. When the car was entered in the Chicago Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, Kurtzinger left with a series of “Best” trophies and a 997 (out of 1,000) point Concours rating. Not bad for a Prairie Boy working in his shop with the help of a few friends. Kurtzinger now intends to display the car locally at Auto Shows in Saskatchewan. The Draggins Car Club, inducted into the Canadian Street  Rodding  Hall of Fame, have been a supporter of local Hot Rodders and car enthusiasts by constantly updating their show and often showcasing popular local vehicles. The Draggins have given back to the community in many ways, and their prime activity is helping to fund the Saskatchewan Abilities Council with the proceeds of their show and other activities. In addition to Kurtzinger, there will be more than 200 other storytellers, all willing to tell you the history of their pride and joy!
