Hot rod luminaries can be seen or even approached like Neal East, Blackie Gejeian, Bruce Meyer. And some of the younger rodders are there setting up booths or cars: Troy Ladd from Hollywood Hot Rods, Mike from H&H Flatheads, Tom Branch, or Chris Casny.
As for my car, it made it... barely. Again it wasn't making it easy! Last week the car started just fine --today, no spark. It was a lot like the morning of the Pasadena Reliability Run. This is one stubborn car!
No way was I not getting it to the show. What it didn't know, was I rented a trailer.
Friends Ed, Tim, and Tim Jr from Denver, Colorado, were on hand to help put it on the trailer. Yes, we did spend a good hour calmly trying to fix the problem. But we really wanted to get to the show badly.
I am sure I am missing something in the wires we simply overlooked. But it will probably start next weekend with no answers to what happened.
We got to Pomona at about 1:20, and were beside Building 10 in an hour. We pushed it right in and Axle Idzardi had a nice place for it right near the entrance, next to the stage. Lost of people checking it out.
But bad luck stuck again. My camera battery was dead --blast! I only have the one picture off my cell phone on the trailer. The rest of the shots are courtesy of the HAMB, where you can also find more show coverage.
