Tale of two car shows

The Classic Auto Show

The Classic Auto Show, March 2019 was a complete change from the previous two shows at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which was an inside venue. The new arena for the Classic Auto Show was the OC Fairgrounds, which is both an outside and an inside venue, giving this year show a different ambiance.  Looking forward to seeing how this classic car show develops. Photographs from The Classic Auto Show is in the GALLERY.

2018 Car Show Season

Notes from 2018

The Ranchero & the Blue Q was created to show off some of the outstanding rides we come across while attending or showing off the ‘65. This year started as usual with the Grand National Roadster Car Show; we have been lucky enough to be granted a media pass for the past few years and feel honored to attend next year. The GNRS hit all expectations for a car show; the classics that demand attention throughout the venue is extensive. This year we had a fun time meeting with some of the speed innovators and authors showcasing The Rolling Bones. Find out more about their story, outlined in the Book of Gow, which we happily purchased in the post, The Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop & Something to remember me by.

Picked up this lunch box at the Pomona Swap Meet, took it over to the GB shop, Mr Barris was sitting in his office, no one was around. I walked over, he asked if he could help me and we started to talk and finally I brought the lunch box into the conversation and asked if he would sign it. What a great afternoon, talking classics with an amazing automotive icon.
