    Tom Ingram presents 'VIVA LAS VEGAS'.

    Next year celebrates the 17th annual Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, and it is rapidly approaching, so I thought I should update you on some car show information.

    Viva Las Vegas is April 17-20th , 2014. The VLV Car Show will be on SATURDAY APRIL 19th in the North West parking lot of The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas.

    All cars must be pre-registered at Once the full 4 day wristbands are sold out, you can still buy Car Show only tickets for 4 days ($45) or just the Saturday ($25 in advance) which enables you to register a car "provided" we still have the space.

    Here are some of the displays and special guests who will be at the Car Show on the Saturday:
    -Special Movie car display! An original '58 Plymouth Fury from 'Christine', A Delorean from 'Back to the future', The original 'Herbie the Lovebug', and car from 'The Beverly Hillbillies'.
    - Special 60's Gasser display with lots of historic Willys.
    - Special Hot Rod Corral - (Indoor Car Show outside).

    - Awards Ceremony with hand made trophies plus cash prizes for:
    Best in Show.
    Best Custom.
    Best Hot Rod.
    Furthest Driven.

    Gretsch Guitar giveaway !

    - Over 120 vendors.

    And many more !

    - Plus Deejay / MC "Del Villareal".

    Close to 1000 cars will be in attendance with a continued emphasis on Traditional Rods, Customs, and pre '64 Classics. For car safety, the parking lot will be locked up at 10pm each night and will re open at 10:00 a.m.

    Like last year the Lonely Knights Car Club from Colorado will be assisting at the Car Show should anyone have any questions.

    Those of you that really enjoy music there will be over 70 bands and close to 25 Deejays performing throughout the weekend. Also, don't miss: Tiki Pool Party, Burlesque competition, Burlesque Bingo, Swimsuit contest, and Charles Phoenix's Vintage Slide Show.

    All rooms at the Orleans are booked but there are many other Hotels in the area, and some offer free shuttle buses to and from the Orleans. Also, some offer a special rate - such as - Gold Coast or Palms.

    Sponsored by HOT ROD DELUXE , HOT ROD , & BUDWEISER .

    Thanks very much

    I'd give a nut if I could go to this's one I have always wanted to attend, but especially this year Axle has lined up some great talent....Robert Gordon is one of my all time favorites.....I met him here in Jersey a couple of years ago and he was very gracious......also put on a great show, a few songs of which I have posted to for my channel: cuznbrucie I may have to look into this and see if it's feasible for me this year!!

    Everybody needs to get on board this one!!

    Thanks Axle. I'd low-crawl naked there through broken glass to see Los Straightjackets! Will probably be crawling home anyway...

  11. I cant wait, this will be my 4th year. always a great show and growing each year.
  12. The alley cats and the vintage vandals cars will be there! I'll be driving my model 'a' for the comfortable 1200 trip.
  13. Here we go again !

    Happening late this year, good reason to ditch the closed cars, uncover those Roadsters and get 'em on the road...........

    I hope I can make it! Im getting Stationed across the street at Nellis AFB around that week some time so hopefully my Cars will drive after sitting in storage for a year. Also hopping to make the Mopars on the strip show. Wish they were both about a month later that would be perfect for me :D
  22. I have weekend passes for my wife and I, cant wait! I'll be driving up Thursday night from the Phoenix area, staying at Rumor Boutique hotel because we got our suite comp'd for free but I hope to stay at the Orleans next year.

    Attention everyone,
    We have passed our 500 registration mark for cars getting in free. There is now a fee of $50 which includes "Car & Driver" for the car show part of the event. Registration is still open, please go to: purchase your ticket, you will be given a ticket number, then continue registering your car. It a pretty simple process . Thanks, Axle
