Grand Nationals Roadster Show

The Grand National Roadster Show is the most revered expo in the hot rod and custom car  world.  It was started in Oakland, CA in 1950 and moved to the Las Angeles County Fairplex in 2003.  Entries this year were from all over the United States, some as far as the East Coast, with two entries shipped over from Europe.

That is it for now.  I am asking Tom to post all of them, when he has finished his edits, on his website.  I will keep you posted.  Right now he is feeding the HAMB website for Jalopy Journal where he gets about 25,000 views and  several hundred comments on the thread created with his images just for this auto show.    Thanks for sharing!
