Veterans—thank you for all you do to protect our country, our freedoms, and our values. You are our true heroes for your honor, bravery, and dedication.

We also want to offer an additional thank you to all the gearheads who have served—or are currently serving—in the United States' military. From the World War II vets who started the hot-rodding and drag-racing movement when they returned home from war, to the veterans who are helping to keep these hobbies strong today, our U.S. military personnel hold a unique, distinguished place in the automotive community.

Summit Racing asked military veterans recently to share their current vehicles and projects on its Facebook page, and they've allowed us to share some of the pics. Enjoy—and thanks again to all of our military veterans from OnAllCylinders!
