Oldies CC Car Show in San Fernando

Sunday I attended the Oldies CC Car Show in San Fernando. It was the first lowrider/custom show I have attended so I didn't know what to expect. It was amazing! The amount of time people spend on the details of these cars blows my mind. The owners of lowriders/customs are very creative people and their personality really shines through their car. There were also some amazing custom bicycles. I was told that people will spend up to $20,000 on their custom bicycle!! Things have really changed, I remember when all I wanted was a banana seat on my bike.

The only thing about the show I didn’t like was the vendor right next to me. He thought it would be a good idea to DJ very loud music from 9:30am to 5pm. I could barely hear and I had to yell at everyone. My ears are still ringing. Looking back it was kind of funny. The lesson I have learned is that if you see 2 very large speakers at the vendor booth next to you RUN!!! He did give me shout outs on the microphone all day and I am sure the whole show could hear that. So they made up for the very loud music!

I think everyone should put attending a lowrider/custom show on the list of things to do in your lifetime. You will not be disappointed. A special thanks to the Oldies Car Club for putting on an amazing event. For more information on the Oldies Car Club go to http://www.oldiescc.com/.

It was a hot day in San Fernando but if you build it they will come.

There were a lot of spectators.

Danny Trejo stopped by my booth to say hi. You may have seen him in Con Air, Desperado and many more. I am kind of famous now...
