50th Annual LA Roadster Show

50th Annual LA Roadster Show, aka Father’s Day Show
父の日に開催される LA Roadster Show、 今年で50周年、 SCNが 28年ですが歴史が違いますね。
当然の事ですが30歳の人も 50年経てば 80歳になっています。 それも大変な事です。
土曜日は人とクルマごった返ししていた会場も日曜日はこの様に静かになり
クルマも減り、Swap meet も粘る Seller と Last Buy を狙う Buyer がウロウロしているだけになってしまいます。
最近の 2 Days Event は全てこんな感じです。
そんな日曜日をお伝えします。

I attended the 50th Annual LA Roadster Show, aka Father’s Day Show in Pomona, California. It’s the 50th anniversary this year. Our Street Car Nationals (SCN) event has been around for 28 years. There’s almost double the history.
In perspective, if you were 30 years old during the first LA Roadster Show, you are 80 years old now. That’s unreal.
Saturday there were so many cars and commotion but Sunday the event area was quite with less cars. The swap meet area with remaining sellers making their last sale to buyers.
Lately, most 2-day events seem to be like this.
That was the condition on Sunday.

搭乗前からすでにトラブル、 Flat-4 の Nao君と SpeedHunters の Dino がダブルブッキング。
二人ともシートはあったの一安心。

There was a slight mix up before the trip even started. Nao from Flat-4 and Dino of SpeedHunters had the same boading pass and seat number. It was figured out and they each got their own seat.

This RX-3 with fenders flares was finished really nice.
This style, a very long time ago, I can remember seeing these but that is all.
For the least bit it was a time when they were very noisy cars.

dbcustomleather-1 dbcustomleather-2

HCS2014 グストバイクのもう一台紹介します。 今年は DB Custom Leather の Duane Ballard が DIGGER と一緒に横浜へ! 以前 YOKOHAMA HOT ROD CUSTOM SHOW 2010 に来日しました。 その時はロングフォークの HONDA DIGGER でした。 今回 HCS2014 は カワサキベースの DIGGER です。 バイクは 1981年 KZ1000 CHP の ポリス スペシャルから作られたそうです。 いろんなショップから手伝いしましたが、 組み立ては Duane のガレージで行いました。 エンジンも弄ってるみたいです。
せひ今年 HCS で The Digger Beat & Guest Diggers を見に来て下さい!

Here’s another guest bike that’s been confirmed. This year, Duane Ballard of DB Custom Leather will be coming to Yokohama with his DIGGER! He’s was a guest at the YOKOHAMA HOT ROD CUSTOM SHOW 2010. He brought a long fork Honda Digger then. This time, at HCS2014, he will bring a Kawasaki base DIGGER. The bike started out as a 1981 KZ1000 CHP Police Special. With the help from friends and shops, he got everything he needed for the build and put it all together on his own in his garage. Be sure to be at this year’s HCS and check out The Digger Beat & Guest Diggers!
