Official 2014 VIVA LAS VEGAS Thread - The Trashmen, Imelda May, Los Straitjackets !

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by axle, Dec 26, 2013.

  1. I'll be there. Just wish I could drive it. I've driven to Ink N Iron, but that's later in the year with more reliable weather. Vegas weather is great. It's the 1,000 miles between here and there that's a problem.
    Regardless, great weekend looking forward to it again.

    The only thing that would make VIVA better is a swap meet. Best show of the year....

    Wife and I are flying in on the Wednesday from Alberta Canada, first time for us. Totally stoked since we wanted to go for the past 4 years. We bought our weekend passes when we were down for sema in November.

    How about a Hamb Meet & Greet at the Hot Rod Corral display - Saturday at 12 Noon?

    I'll have 6 very traditional Hot Rods on display with red velvet theatre rope, brass stanchions, and salt rock around the cars.
