Grand National Roadster Show 2014

Last month Dave and I attended the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA.  This was my third year attending.  Dave is a true veteran of this show having lost count of how many times he has attended.  There were so many awesome cars on display this year and I just have to say that this was the motivation we needed to purchase our classic car for ourselves (1962 Cadillac).  Below are a few of my favorite pictures from the day.


Love those atomic hubcaps.





The Louis Vuitton seat fabric was so posh and totally picture worthy.



The Suede Palace.


It's pretty rare to see a white custom car.  I thought it really suited this car well with all the gold and red leather detailing.  Truly a fabulous car.


This Cadillac is what sold me on buying ours.  This car is killer!





This Roosevelt themed car was pretty amazing.  It's all original.




I love this emerald green!






Dave and his buddy Paul.







This car was interesting to say the least but the awesome tiki shack props fit perfectly!



Another favorite color of mine and Dave's!


Cutest car at the show!


This neon sign booth was a sight to behold.


Here's another cool photo with the crowds walking by.


This is the beautiful custom car that James Hetfield from the band Metallica had on display.


Dave and Paul doing some vintage shopping.


Paul petting the cutest doggie we saw at the show.  The poor thing was disabled and could not walk.  We made sure to give her some love.


Me and my sweetie!


We ended up stopping by Disneyland on the way home and took Paul to Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki bar.  He had never been and is now, like us, a big fan.  What a nice way to end the day.


Till' Next Time,

Suz
