Enter our Hot Rod Lincoln contest!

 

We love a good mashup and was there ever a better pairing then cars and music? The song and the car "Hot Rod Lincoln" is famous for its V12 engine in a Lincoln and more so, the deceptively difficult guitar riff.

 

So if you're a Hot Rod Lincoln fan, a fan of Lincolns or both—share a video of yourself playing that famous lick or a picture of your Lincoln for the chance win a Fender American Telecaster and Hot Rod Deluxe Amplifier.

 

Entries accepted through 31 July 2020. See the attached PDF for the full contest rules.

Hello Hot Rod Lincoln Fans! Here's video of me doing my best to play that awesome lick from the Commander Cody version of "Hot Rod Lincoln.

Jeez barely two weeks to either acquire a hot rod Lincoln or learn that freakin riff - I chose the more difficult option and almost got the riff down:

Good Luck to Us All

 

Thanks Sajeev, Julie, et al at Hagerty!

Kicking myself for "My Daddy said" when I know it's "My Pappy said"...but there's no way I would've played it even THAT well a second time.

Thanks for the generous compliment! I resort to gimmickry only when necessary...and it was never more necessary.

Not gimmickry, it's a "flair for theatrics".

I gave that song a shot. I now realise that you are probably supposed to be using alternate picking, instead of just downstrokes.

Thanks so much to Sajeev, Jack, Julie and the team at Hagerty as well as the folks at Sweetwater!!!   I’m blown away and incredibly fortunate - to say the least - to have such won such a wonderful Fender Tele and Hot Rod Deluxe.   There were so many great submissions - both pics of sweet Lincolns and vids of excellent guitar riffage. 

 

Not only does Hagerty have the best crop of auto writers in the world, but you all just made my year, nay, decade!
