The Bent 8 Car Club is a group of hot rod enthusiasts in Southern Alberta, representing and promoting the traditional hot rod hobby and lifestyle.  Established in the fall of 2016, the name of the club was derived from the 50’s slang term for a V-8 engine, or a vehicle having such an engine.  Club members’ vehicles range from the 20’s to early 60’s, and have/show many characteristics, styles, and qualities of the pre-’64 hot rod era.  

As a club we meet at least once a month, but also enjoy gathering for various car shows, going on cruises as a club, and/or working on and helping with club member vehicles.  On a nice summer evening, there is a good chance you may see us cruising down 3rd Avenue or Mayor Magrath Drive in Lethbridge.

We have developed a strong friendship and bond among like minded individuals with a strong passion for hot rods and custom vehicles, and all of the fun and excitement that comes along with this wonderful passion and hobby.  We enjoy getting together as much as possible, with family being huge priority to our members.  Some of our best times are spent enjoying the hot rod hobby with our significant others and families.  

We will be hosting our first car show, The Bent 8 Boogie, on June 3rd, 2017.  We are anticipating a great turnout, and know the event will be a great success with the support of our amazing sponsors.  We hope to make the event an annual affair, the first Saturday of June every year.
