In the mid ninties, alot of us where painting our cars semigloss black with red wheels, I just feel this has been overdone and it's nice to see alot of the cars finished and to their full potencial. Another trend I 've been seeing at the Suede Palace is guys are building more customs, this is due to the fact that alot guys have gotten married and have kids now, let's face it, you can't stuff your whole family in a model "A" coupe. 40's era customs are the hot ticket now , this is refreshing, for these cars have been ignored in the past, and give a nice change to the usual 53 to 54 chevy's and 49 to 54 fords. For hot rods, the new trend is building 30's and 40's era hot rods. For years , most hot rods were being built in the mid to late fifties style, now we are seeing alot of earlier stlye cars being built, for they have their place too, in the history of hot rodding. What ever your taste of cars are, you'le find it at the Grand National Roadster Show, even in the other buildings, we are seeing more and more traditional hot rods and customs on display, this is great for it tells us that we are not just another fad that is going to die out.
