2011 Grand National Roadster Show

We are back on the road, heading east after a great time out here at the 62nd Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona. The Blue Belle garnered much more than her fair share of attention, especially from the lofty heights of this show. The level of quality, across the spectrum, out here is nothing short of amazing.

There are 8 buildings housing several hundred cars, trucks, bikes and even a couple boats. The show also has a ‘drive in’ car show that happens on Saturday and Sunday. This year it drew over 900 cars on a flawless California day Saturday. I spent much of Saturday walking around and soaking up the phenomenal collection of automobilia found outdoors, in addition to the obvious indoor show. This event truly can lead to sensory overload. It is something that every car fan should experience at least once in their lifetime.

At the end of the day, she took home First in Class (Mild Sports), an outstanding Display award and, incredibly, the Outstanding Sports car of the Show. That was more than we ever expected at what  could be considered one of the greatest car shows ever. I think Penny is happy!

I better put this computer away and get back to driving. The show has started as we head east into Albuquerque, and ultimately, Waco, Texas, for the next stop on the Blue Belle Express. If you’re in the area, stop by the Waco Convention Center this weekend.

Until next time,

Randy
