We hope to be your one-stop information spot for all the car happenings in the Treasure Valley and beyond. Over the past 10 years the resurrection of hot rods, street rods, classic, antique and collectible cars has risen along with the intrigue of Rat Rods. This has created an ever-growing need for communicating and sharing of information on venues, news, events and who's who in the car club, car enthusiast world. One of our goals is to let members know who they can count on to acquire information but also who can help them with their current projects.
In other words, we've got what you need. Whether your next project is as simple as replacing the spark plugs or as complex as adding an NOS system to boost your performance, we want to know who you are, what you can do, and if you're willing to provide support and expertise to assist ICCC members in completing their projects. A brotherhood of car enthusiasts that want to invest in the heritage and future of automobiles everywhere. Support and Service: We are more than just a catalog. We hope to be a resource, and as we grow an interactive part of the car community.
