    If there is even a hint of seeing another Kustom I have yet to see, I’ll be at Lead East. And what I have learned from all the guys who have become my friends, If you are not there, then shut up. I have been to DMC as have all my friends, and its a great time with tons of cars to enjoy. So if there are two events near each other, you will find me doing what I love to do...taking photos and representing the best cars in the North East.

    Ha, photoshop a GTO, mid 50s Chevy or billet-laden street rod next to that guy and you have pretty much 50% of Lead East.
     

  5. I was there more recently than 15 years ago,
    and they still had a muffler rapping contest.



    If anyone loves Lead East, great, go.



    Those that are looking for another option, now you have one.

    I have enjoyed both shows for years and have no connection to either, I just have to ask what you get out of posting silly comments like "lining there pockets" its $30 for two days at one show and $50 a day at the other......... And "despite competitors" aren't we all in it for the same reason. How many of you Pro Lead East or Anti Dead Mans Curve guys or vise virsa would attend both shows if they were on different weekends? Its not about you me or anyone else ITS ABOUT THE CARS go where you want, do what you want and unless you put together your own show QUIT BITCHING!

    Having never been to lead east but hearing ALOT about it from 57joe....i have to go.
    I am a muscle car junkie that has had his eyes opened to a new view of a different "sort' of automotive appreciation (thanks Joe). I'm building a car for lead east....not the coolest of cars but its mine.
    I have taken heat from the "purist" but insist on using their point of views and advice in building it when i appreciate their ideas. I WILL build it in my style and show it at lead east next year. Will it win any awards.....probably not...who cares....its a ll about the love of our rides.
    Now lets get over which venue is best, whos spending or making the most money and ENJOY what we all love...the unique and stylized vehicles we customize, build, spend wayyyy to much on and wouldnt change for any one!

    Joe, I couldn't have said it any better. That's exactly what we do. Me and my 56 will be chilling with a beverage in the B lot with a bunch of my good buddies. No need to get caught up in politics, etc...It's just a good time.

  13. Have fun, wish I could be there.

    The Magic of any Car Show is from the people who participate in the show. I was in a Club for years. There were always people who always complained and expected to be guaranteed a good time. No matter what they did to create it.
    I am sure there were people who live to create problems or sit all day and complain at both shows. If things are getting watered down at ANY show. What have each of us done to be part of the good time. NO it is not all about money! I have seen that Lead East has always allowed people to bring in coolers and food of their own. One time at Disney Land I got turned away with any drinks or food at the front gate. Had to eat their Expensive food.No carry in food allowed there.
    Insurance and Fire Department have put a cap on Flamethrower event
    Insurance has put a cap on the Riding on back of cars.
    Insurance and Government have put a cap on the Loud Car noise.
    If any of you have noticed the amount of Police and Fire Department that were at Lead East for every moment the show was open! Do you think any promoter wants to have that?
    The Complainters have caused all of the problems and created this Government follow up of this Bad stuff that the Government and Insurance says is not allowed.
    I know I will get beat up on this, But.........

    I went to both shows. Had a blast at both venues. Saw tons of my friends at both shows. How fuckin cool to have two BIG events 20 minutes apart. I saw tons of great Kustoms and Hot Rods at both shows. Look forward to doing again. Had a BAD ASS time.
    Slim.

    At Lead East on Friday afternoon.

    Really ?? DMC throws a mean party and it will get bigger. The more shows the better
     
  22. If you've been to The Radir Wheels party,
    you know what DMC is capable of.

    Their one evening get together, is better than most smaller shows.

  26. Seems like plenty of room for both shows. I can remember back in the early 70s when car shows were few and far between, so, in my opinion, having to decide which show to go to isn't a bad thing. Nothing wrong with a little competition.
