Default Paso Robles 2007



I didn't make it this year. Work and life got in the way of the 10 or so days it takes a Texan to get all the way to NorCal and back for the show. So, I was sitting on ...

Spending time on south padre ain't bad either though I imagine the weather did not cooperate very much.

Man, it was a great time.

Paso was a blast, lots of new cars more rods, hell I did'nt see half of the park because of the tide of people going the wrong way I did'nt want to get trampled. We stayed out at a ranch so it was like a vacation for me and the wife, hit a opossum with the 33 ahh roadkill!! Got to meet Denise -ChevyGirl and a few other hambers. Cant wait for next year, already got our reservation at the ranch. Paul

Looks like it was an awesome show. I'm thinking of driving down from here in Canada next year to attend it.

As to your question about best/worst...it was one of the best for me. I hung out with great friends all weekend. I was stoked that A&W was gone - about 20 of us went and had a killer sushi dinner instead and then drank at the hotel - no cuff contest. The crowd at the park was lame. It seems like every jackass in the world has a club jacket and patch, especially the newbie cuff-rodders - and there were plenty of them.

Our plan for next year is to still roll down on Thursday (which is the best night in my opinion), dump the cars in the park early on Saturday, do a thorough lap while there is no crowd, head back to the hotel and do our own thing until around 3:00, then go back and get the cars, bail on Sunday morning.

In short, I was stoked on the company I kept and put off by the ever-increasing rat rod scene, but the cool far outweighed the lame.

The cars were great, there were still a few that were in the show that were questionable quality. Most of the Viva crowd also made it up there somehow. Lots of drinking, maybe even boozing and coozing. The cops were cool about most the light burnouts on Spring street. I think the show lasted long on the Sunday than last year.

One of the best Paso shows, had a great drive down from San Jose on friday mornin' with a bunch of guys, didn't go to the cruise Friday night but hung out till 3:00 am in Paso with some friends. Saturday was great, lot's of new cars, saw some old friends and made some new ones, it seems that there where some people there that were more worried about what kind of clothes others wore and what club they belonged to than what kind of car they drove.

The People I hung out with were good people and I don't really care what they had on or if there was a patch on it or not.
I hope next year will be as good as it was this year, A big thank you to all who made it possible!!

POST EDITED BY ME to remove the club's name. The point is still the same. We need to be aware of our actions at events if we care about the future of hot rod events.


Obviously it's not the clothes, it's the few whose actions will potentially screw it up for the many, who bum me out. I have been going to Paso for 14 years, and it used to be a mellower crowd. I have no problem with events that are created to be wild. Paso was not.

A perfect example is the car club who were driving their truck up and down Spring St. in front of the bowling alley with guys standing in the bed dragging the bumper on the ground with their club logo banner in-tow. Once may have been semi-interesting, but after the 20th it was pretty fucking stupid. I think they thought that people were cheering them on, when in reality most were shouting compliments like "dipshits" and "dumbfucks".

They'd have been just as idiotic without their club colors on, but it sure made it easier to figure out who they were. The funny thing is that it's guys like that who will be the first to whine about how the cops in Paso treat hot rodders.

I'm not bashing clubs at all, most of my friends are in clubs and I started two of the most influencial in the last 20 years.

My group of friends has a pretty wild and drunken time without potentially fucking it up for everyone else.

I get your point, Kirk and I have to agree with you, there were a lot of newbie's or wannabe's and it seems they are more worried about their hair and their clothes than any thing else, the same crowd are the ones that make the most noise and are always in desperate need of attention. I just try to ignore them, but if they are acting like the guys you mentioned above it's kinda hard, maybe they should get dragged down spring street next time.

Paso is always excellent. seems like there was way more people than ever before, and a BUNCH of cool cars that were not in the show were parked around the side streets. next year I'm bringing my bicycle so I can get more pics of cars outside the park.

..as for posers and fools.. didn't notice. I did notice far fewer shitboxes than there used to be. fewer cars without floors. took 418 pictures. posted about 70 here.

it was a good time as always.
