Cincinnati, OhioIn our earlier installment we got a good look at the caliber of cars, trucks, and bikes that attended the annual Cincinnati Cavalcade of Customs last weekend. Now, we’re going under the hood to check out what makes these rides tick. From flathead fours to turbo LS engines, there was something for just about everyone at the show. And we tried to snap pics of all of it.
