    The 14th Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend is rapidly approaching so I thought I should update you on some car show information.

    Viva Las Vegas is April 21st - 24th. The VLV Car Show will be on SATURDAY APRIL 23rd in the North West parking lot of The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas.

    All cars must be pre-registered at www.vivalasvegas.net The full 4 day wristbands are nearly sold out and the car show is about 3/4 full already. 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 enable you to register a car if 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 60's Gasser display.
    - Special Customs Corral.
    - Hustlers Drag Racing Team will return with their front engined Hemi powered Rail and starting it up periodically.
    - Mistress of the Dark "Elvira" will make a special appearance along with her "Macabre Mobile".
    - The Munster Koach will be on display along with Brett Barris' "Kargoyle".
    - Awards Ceremony with hand made trophies plus:
    $500 for Best in Show.
    $200 for Best Custom.
    $200 for Best Hot Rod.
    $200 for Furthest Driven.
    PLUS, a Gretsch Guitar giveaway
    - Over 120 vendors.

    Entertainment:
    - JERRY LEE LEWIS at 6pm
    - The Blasters
    - Lustre King
    - Dynatones
    - Deejays Del Villareal & Rockin Vic.

    Over 700 cars will be in attendance with a continued emphasis on Traditional Rods, Customs, and Classics. For car safety, the parking lot will be locked up at 10pm each night and will be watched by security.

    The Road Devils - "Devils Brigade" are doing a film documentary where chapters from all over the U.S. will be driving out to VLV. This will be a very special benefit where proceeds go to injured veterans of the middle eastern war.

    INSIDE THE HOTEL:-
    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.

    ROOMS:
    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 .
    Gold Coast - SOLD OUT
    Palms - 1-866-942-7770 - Special Rates code# AT0421B

    Thanks very much, looking forward to see you there.

    The car show would be well worth the price of admission just to see The Killer!

    Throttlers of SLC will be there for sure. Look for the 59D + Muffin's Coupe with a fresh chop job! We've been working on it for weeks now to get it done for the show...
     

  5. The Road Devils Car Club will also be assisting in the running of the actual car show itself. We are honored to have been asked to help by both Tom & Axle.

    We will have members from all over the USA as well as from around the world. We will have a special display of club vehicles also.

    Should be a "Killer" (pardon the Jerry Lee pun) time.
     
  6. The Lonely Knights are coming in force from Colorado. Looks like Nine cars and about 14 people. Always a good time.

    Tom and Alex have us to help at the gate, and we will do just that.

    For me, at the Car Show, The Lustre Kings are going to make the day. What prelude to Jerry Lee.............

    The Road Devils CC "Devil's Brigade" is the Military Chapter of the RDCC, made up of currently serving and honorably discharged members of the US Armed Forces - we're extremely happy to be taking part in VLV this year, and we'll be driving from FT Bragg NC, the home of the Airborne and Special Operations Forces, and trying to raise awareness and support for our wounded Special Operations Warriors and their families. We'll also be filming a documentary that will chronicle the history of the Road Devils CC from 1946-today, as well as show what happens when hot rodders get ambushed in vehicles they've worked on themselves! We're still actively seeking support for our trip out there; and you can find out more at our webpages.

    There's really no other car show in the world like Viva Las Vegas, we're really looking forward to seeing everyone at the show, and hope to see some folks join our convoy on the way out and/or back!!!

    Here's a sneak peek at our DVD:

    The Strange Bird will be there as part of the special Gasser display. There will be some rad race cars there from what I have heard.

    If I can get away with it .......maybe even some laps around the event too hahaha. Definitely look for us terrorizing the Vegas strip in the Bird!

    It will be a a good time for sure. Thanks again to Axle for the invitation.

    My wife and I and both of our kids will be there (Team Acme) and we are REALLY looking forward to it. This show is a blast!

    We are driving out in the 36 3-window and the ACME van. The 36 will be in the Custom Corral that Axle is putting together (thanks for the invite) and the van will be lurking in the car show (casting a big shadow on someone).

    For those of you that have not been to the show; get your shit together and go!

    Hope to see you all there and by the way, if Axle and tom will let me I will bring an ACME LIKES IT pinstripe trophy to give away to our favorite car, truck, bike or whatever gets us excited.

    Whadaya think Axle and Tom?

  28. John,

    That is one sweet '36 Three Window, can't look at it enough. That's why we gave it the Lonely Knights "Kingpin" award last year.

    You won everything else too, right ?

    See you soon, Johnnie.
