Thanks for everything Alex. Great show as usual...
We were the "Canada Customs and Hot Rods" group from Vancouver Canada, and we had the time of our lives. We ran into a few obstacles on our way down (axle bearing) that turned it into a 41 hour trip and snow on the way home (37 hours), but it was worth it. You put on a great show, and we will be back next year with some new rides.
Thanks for fitting us in on such short notice, see you again next year!!
hey loudpedal, i saw that woody didnt show up, ..lucky for him i guess..lol...i brought money to talk him out of that truck!!!! i wasnt leaving till he said "ok"...lol...i was determined!!
I am one of those canadians who came down with my friends 37 ford pick-up,wiyh the hudson nose.Had a really good time and wanted to thank our hosts.Also enjoyed being pulled over on the way home by Bo Huff,family and friend,thanks for the shirts. Till next year.
lets see if this works,...
heres one of the "soap box derby races, (guido on the loooong skate board!)
This was the first year for Lil' Redhead Girl and I. We have been planning this vacation for over 2 years. Bitchin rendesvou spot for her and I. (D.C. and Orlando respectivley)
Did any two women have the same outfit on They all looked good enough to eat!!
Car show was Badd Ass, "Red" was such a good sport and even commented on her favorite car as "The Pink One".
Music was all top shelf entertainment, Sunday dance contest was too much fun. Burlesque show a real HOOT!
We met a shit-load of friendly people, so glad we came. See ya' all next year, make your resurvations early.
notice the sign above them on the way out!
No, that's a fella by the name of Jamison out of the Denver area, I'm sure he was hatin' it worse than me being in an open car. We were in a Dark Green 5-window Deuce and got of I-70 to hit the side roads in Grand Junction.
thanks, Axle, it was a blast, even if I threw a rod in my flathead and couldnt finish driving the whole way.
Sorry to have missed it this year with the coupe, but sounded like a blast and glad it went well! Just gives me an incentive to make it next year with my fellow car mates and buddies from the RZ club. And yes, Nacho is a ruler and his Tiki creation is amazing Guido is always a friendly good time!
Great job for pulling yet another successful Carshow/event in Vegas.
see ya next year!
Ok, where's the pic? I've _GOTTA_ see this thing!
sinners, thanks for posting the video's. i've watched them about 30 times and its all coming back to that moment all over again. i'm sitting in front of the computer laughin my ass off! if anyone has a close up picture of the bomb at the shifters corral please post it. there was probably a dozen pin up models that had thier pictures taken on it...maybe one of you have a picture of that too!?!? yeah, that last video with the sign above is a riot!!!!!!

Thats the truth. It went by way too fast. I didn't get to see everything, but I saw enough to make it worthwhile!
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!
I just stumbled on this one on the VLV site. It definitely kicks ass!

I know for a fact me and ol' brian lee had a great time- and I think so did the '59 caddy (cause it stuck around to see it all this time- haha!) Thanks for putting on one of the best shows all year!
if you read my roadtrip story on another thread it might seem like i didn't have much fun but i have been looking forward to this show for the last year and a half and 6 of us from medford all had the same goal this year, "viva or bust". we did it, and will have stories to brag about for years. i posted some pics on www.vivalasvegas.net they should be on the first page, "oregon breakdown crew, the aces, sled, caddy,dudes pickin up dudes, and my wife is gonna be so mad.
Thanks Axle. Had a good time, both driving out with the Road Zombies & San Jose crew, as well as at the show.
Thank you for having us,I will write again from jail when I dont pay my gas bills... Tim from PIRATEKUSTOMz upstate N.Y. we went to L.A. after the show then back to New York,10 to 12 miles to the gallon sucks...
Me and the wife also had a great time in Vegas, spent all day at the TIKI saturday at the car show hanging out with the rest of the guys from san jose and I had the sunburn to prove it, I'm talking blisters on my forehead! But I can't wait to come back next year, THANX FOR A GREAT WEEKEND!!
