The History of the Wentzville Rod Run: The Wentzville Rod Run has deep roots in the local community, dating back to its inaugural event decades ago. The show takes place each summer on the first Friday in June and the first Friday in August. What began as a small gathering of car enthusiasts has since blossomed into a beloved tradition that attracts thousands of visitors each year. For a $10 donation anything from classic cruisers to modern creations can cruise down East Pearce Blvd. The Rod Run showcases the best of automotive craftsmanship and creativity while celebrating the rich automotive heritage of Wentzville and beyond. Over the years, the event has evolved and grown, yet its core mission remains the same: to bring together car lovers of all ages for a Friday evening of fun while raising money for a great cause. Proceeds are presented to the Wentzville police Department to support its S.M.A.R.T program (previously known as D.A.R.E). Over the last 14 years (2009-2023) the event has generated over $100,000 for the program. What to Expect at the Wentzville Rod Run: Whether you’re a seasoned gearhead or a local coming to enjoy the sights, the Wentzville Rod Run offers something for everyone. Prepare to be amazed as rows upon rows of meticulously restored classics, vintage muscle cars, and eye-catching hot rods line the streets of downtown Wentzville. From iconic Ford Mustangs to sleek Chevrolet Corvettes, there’s no shortage of automotive eye candy to admire and appreciate. As the sun sets on Friday evening, the streets come alive with the rumble of engines and the glow of neon lights during the Cruise Night festivities. Watch as cars of all makes and models parade through downtown Wentzville, their engines roaring and exhausts rumbling in a symphony of horsepower and nostalgia. Come cruise with us this summer of 2024, June 7th and August 2nd! A big thank you to the Wentzville Police Department for ensuring safe cruising, Poage Chevrolet for helping with registration, and  the Wentzville Downtown Business Association.

Get your vehicle ready for winter!

Make sure your vehicle is ready to endure the cold with our NEW winter bundle. Protect the key components of your vehicle for only $89.95! This new package defends against battery corrosion, strengthens antifreeze, and protects the fuel system.

Our battery service fights corrosion to ensure that you have confidence with starting up your car in the cold. This service uses our trained technicians to inspect the battery terminals and cables, clean posts and terminals, install anti-corrosion terminal protectors, and seals all the posts, terminals and case. It includes a two year anti-corrosion warranty. Lets make sure you never get stuck in the cold by running this service that fights against corrosion to keep connections strong for reliable, cold weather starts.

Making sure that your antifreeze is safe for cold weather is essential. That is why we added this service that strengthens your antifreeze to preform at a high level in the freezing temperatures. This service is a unique formulation that restores antifreeze to its premier level of protection. It restores critical additive balance, proper antifreeze pH and provides protection against corrosion. Antifreeze breakdown during the cold winter months can lead to catastrophic failure.

Last in the three part service is a fuel system service which will protect the fuel system from harmful ethanol that attracts water and corrosion. This service prevents water held in ethanol-blended gasoline (such as E10) from separating, causing corrosion to the fuel system and freezing the fuel lines. It contains stabilizers to prevent fuel oxidation, neutralize acids, and form a protective coating on fuel system components to prevent fouling and lost performance.
