A lot of people have a Super Bowl Sunday ritual. Mine is to bundle up, fill the Thermos, and meet up with Chicagoland’s coldest hot rod show: the annual Bare Bones C.C. Polar Bear Cruise. This year’s edition wended its way through the western ‘burbs, with stops at TL Customs in East Dundee and Burkhardt Custom Cycles in Addison. One hardy chap braved the 18 degree temps in a hot rod roadster fire truck, earning the coveted Brass Monkey award. In between gulps of coffee and donuts, I captured a few shots of the machinery. Enjoy!
