First report from the L.A. Roadster Show

I had a great time at the roadster show. I managed to make it out to the car show at the Pomona Fairplex on Saturday. For some reason I still think of the Pomona fairgrounds as the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds.

I saw lots of nice cares and talked with many friendly folks. The wealth of knowledge at classic and antique car shows is truly phenomenal.

There were some new cars too, well newer that the 1930s and before.

I spent a good amount of time in building 4 talking with venders and they had some very interesting insight too. Being a small business owner I am always interested in the businesses that support and are supported by niche industries.

There were quite a few artists with a variety styles. One art form that was well represented was pin striping. I was lucky enough to walk by just as this attractive artist finished her latest creation.

When I got out of building 4 I was greeted by more great cars and then headed to the swap meet. But time went be so quickly that by the time I reached the swap meet my time was up. The car show had officially closed. It looks like this show will take me at least two days if I want to see everything.

If I can make time I will try to get back for a shorter period of time on Sunday.

Wish all a wonderful Fathers Day
