Hot Rod Heaven: 2018 Rims on the River [Video]

Known more for its beaches than booming car scene, Wilmington, North Carolina, has proven to be hot bed for car enthusiasts and vacationers alike. While there’s plenty to keep you busy in the coastal town, the annual Rims on the River event draws in auto enthusiasts from all over the state. Using downtown Wilmington and the Cape Fear River as the backdrop, the annual car show takes over a few blocks for hot rods of all types to show off their rides. The family friendly event also played host this year to a pin-up girl contest and free concert.


We stopped by for a few ours to check out some of the rides in attendance. As you can see from the video above, there was a wide-ranging assortment. To find out more about next year’s show, be sure to visit
