Paso, was great as always. There was a strange vibe on Friday night. Me, the Wife and kids bailed around 9:30 and went back to the hotel and had a few beers and then up way too early to get parked in the park. Great friends and cars!!

see ya next year

Brad

In my opinion, this was one of the best Paso's ever.
We eliminated a lot of the "what's that doing here" cars and stuck to our year break as close as possible. I only spotted a handful of "off year" cars, and all of those were pretty heavily customized.
As for the rat rods being cleaned up. . . The show had nothing to do with it, but I'm glad to see it happening.
I think everyone is getting tired of the shit box style cars. Even the guys that were showing up a few years back with rust covered crap and no floors, had well built cars there this year.
The number of "non entered" cars doubled. They were everywhere.
Spectators have increased as well. Every vendor had a record year.
And, . . as far as I know, there were no "incidents" that were related to our cars. Just the locals going a little crazy.
All in all, it was a very smooth show.

Craig

Had an absolute blast.

Big thanks to Penny for the Biletproof mention in the program. That rocks and I'll make it up to ya.

Met lots of great folks, dropped lots of Billetproof flyers, ate lots of great food, drank too much.. oh yes, there were some cars there as well. Too many to pick out a fave.

I don't know if it was the best, but it was a great one for sure. I just got home around 4.30 PM Monday, after getting there Thursday. Which had more going on than Friday of last year maybe. Anyway, i milked the tits off this one this year for sure

I agree with KIRK, it was a very good show as usual. I missed out on most of the festivities on Friday nite, but enjoyed Saturday and Sunday. I have been going to Paso for quite a while myself and seen it evolve into what it is today. I think the best part is the "family reunion" with all the friends you've made that live up and down the state.. The cars are a just a bonus.. Anytime the numbers grow, there are always going to be a few more headaches. After all, more people = more personalities trying to get along in a small area. The only down fall I found were the drunks in the park Saturday nite that took it personally that my wife and I didn't want to go to the bowling alley Saturday nite. Was there even anything going on at the bowling alley Saturday nite??? Maybe he wanted a date from me.. Anyway, to that guy... The stripes on my wifes car are straight, if your head was straight, you see it. Try looking at it without the beer in your hand... And for future reference, a date will cost you more than beer. I'm more of a J.D. fan..

Had a pretty good time this year. I brought my 13 yr old son for his first time. He loved it, let him take pictures of all the cars "with no hoods". We left a little earlier than I had originally intended, but he kept thanking me for taking him, so it made up for it. As cuffs and clothes in general, I wear what I usually where everywhere. White t-shirt, wranglers, boots and a hat, if they don't like it, fuckem. I'm there for the cars not to make an image.

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.


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.
Yep Kirk you got to keep those idiots out of Billet proof Ban em'. Because thats exactly what turns me off to your show.LTR Dave

Paso was great! The meet and great was a blast. Great to finally put some faces with names.

Best part for me was the drive the 34 miles round trip, on route G14, to and from our campground at Lake Naciamento. (I had to flat tow the T Bucket with our accomidations for the weekend) That drive was kick ass!

This was a good year, but they always seem to be. I thought there were a lot more spectators, people wandering in to see the show, not necessarily there with cars. But that may be a reflection of Paso itself growing, lots of buidling going on in that town. There seemed to be fewer shit box cars as well, maybe those people are either building better cars or getting into some other scene.

The cops were telling me 'This is the last show ever" The claimed the city officials were irate w/ the whole thing... I'm guessing once the money is tallied up, the show will be back next year-

I wish the local goofball cars could be kept away from entire Park area from Friday - Sunday. WCK should block off everything for the 72 hr Paso period- Registered cars only. Just my opinion to keep the mustangs and 4X4's from cruising the park after hours....

I would agree that it should be entered cars only from friday till sunday but the security would be expensive. The cops,the town even west coast customs have been saying last one every year for the 11 years I've been going. I'll enjoy it till the end! LTR Dave

Sounds like your son is destined to be a future Hamber,it's very rewarding when they are so enthused at that age.Too bad more parents don't involve their kids in their hobby,since it steers them in such a good direction for the future.
