In spite of having monster engines, many hot rods will never see a mile on the road. These cars, built entirely for show, are referred to as “trailer queens” and it’s not necessarily a compliment. Troy Trepanier of Rad Rides by Troy in Manteno, IL, has built his share of trailer queens.
That doesn’t mean Troy isn’t into going fast. It just means he has somehow managed to master both ends of the spectrum. He’s good at show and GO.
