    Irwindale Speedway is safe for 2017 at least. Ms. Toni Marie McCray won a Late Model Race 2-weeks ago and came within 0.018 seconds of winning a second Late Model race later in the evening. It will be a great Saturday evening after the Roadster Show.

    Support the LARS like you would your favorite charity.
    If it disappears I guarantee there will not be another great hot rod show & swap like it.
    I'm coming from Dallas Tx...and hope it is always there for me.

    Getting close to being the last one close to me now. Haven't been to an NSRA event in years so I can't speak to that. Goodguys has become an event for anybody with a car.

    A bunch of us drove out to the LARS last year in our hot rods and loved it!!
    I'm reliving each day of the trip, the tours, and the show in my mind each day... sure wish I could have repeated it this year!!
    Maybe another time, or not, but dang glad we did it last year. Priceless to me.

    I took advantage of the show to sell a few items before changing my street roadster into a Street Roadster.

    There sure is a lot of tv and radio advertising going on here in SoCal for the LARS this weekend. I intend to go early and leave early on Saturday. Don't like big crowds anymore in my old age. I stopped going to the GNRS because of the crowds.

    I do my damnedest not to be a bitter old man and spend a lot time moaning about tradition and how about things used to be. Kids today don't know what it was like back then. Ya' know what? They don't know and they don't care. Yeah gas used to 29 cents a gallon and taking a roadster to the LA roadster show was free. That was then and this is now.

    Tradition is mostly bullshit anyway, it don't pay the bills. Yeah I used to get into Knott's Berry Farm for free but that's gone now too. I'll be at the Roadster show, I might even bitch about how it used to be smaller, less people, beer was cheap, vendors were cheap, swap meet was cheap, and all the cheap China re-pop junk being hawked.

    If you're not there because you feel tradition means you should get in for free so be it.

    I guess reading comprehension is not your forte. I'm not bitching about the $50 or tradition like the others. I'll be there with you Dopey.

    AMEN Dean, I dropped my membership in the Goodguys 4 or 5 years ago, I just have a real hard time excepting the fact that an F350 Crew Cab with a 2 foot lift kit and chrome drive shaft or an '85 Crown Vic with 15 shades of Metal Flake and Gull Wing doors is a "Rod or Custom"!! It just ain't right, and while I'm at it, The Round Ups are just as bad. I've been to 8 Lonestar and 1 Bayou Round- Ups, $50 for you and your car, an extra $10 for your wife or girlfriend! Around here most of the events are $10 to $25 for you, your car and one other person, plus a lot of them throw in a t-shirt. Times are changing and I'm gett'n to Old to change with them I guess, Have a nice fucking Day!!!

  15. I've changed my tune on the LARS. As info trickled out, it looks like things will be not much different, other than the $50 entry. A change for sure, but at least there will still be the best show on earth to attend. I paid my money, we'll see how it goes.

    Thanks hotroddon.
    So what about all the open houses that we hear about, when are they?
    I thought that they were in the days before.

  20. There were a bunch today. Friday is So Cal Speed Shop and Bobby Walden's ice cream social.
     
  21. I'm in the Swap Meet tomorrow at 9 AM, spot BBB5 selling some Deuce junk. I do like the new way of picking your spot in advance without having to camp out for 3 days and then charge through the gate like the Oklahoma Land Rush to stake a claim. The guys and gals at the swap sign-up were very nice so I've got a positive experience going so far. We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    Don, do you have any info for times for SoCal and Walden's?
     
  23. If you want to park within 3 blocks of So Cal, you better get there at noon.

    Well we are in! Left home at 11am for a 2 1/2 to 3hr drive. Unfortunately I did not know it was California freeway overloading and Caltrans lane closing/rerouting day all in one. Got to Fairplex at 3:53! Robot guard was not programmed to understand "cooperation". Good thing John Buck stopped by and said "there's no problem here, let him in" so we are parked where we need to be for the weekend and our hotel was ready for us. Really glad there are no carpool lane cameras on 10 between 15 and Fairplex!
