On October 7 the Vintage Torque staff and volunteers will be bringing another exciting event that caters to the traditional builders and backyard enthusiasts who break knuckles and bust their bodies to bring their automotive dreams to life. The show kicks off at the McHenry County Fairgrounds on Friday around 6pm. Surf Zombies will be rocking into the night. Then, Saturday at 8:00 a.m. Iron Invasion opens to the public. Head to McHenry County Fairgrounds for a day of grease, gas, and steel. The fairgrounds is located at 1050 Country Club Rd, Woodstock, IL 60098. (1 mile north of route 14 on route 47.
