the grand daddy of them all

Yep, that's how they call the Grand National Roadster Show. And in fact, it is probably the longest running indoor car show worldwide as it celebrated its 60th birthday in 2009. For me, it was the first time at that show and the display of cars was quite impressive, or let's say overwhelming. I'm not the biggest fan of indoor events, as they're kinda static by nature. But the quality of the cars was just mindblowing. And a personal highlight for me was to see so many famous custom cars and hot rods I only knew from books or mags, as the Barris built Ala Kart. In order to celebrate the 60 years, they had one building that was packed with cars that made history at the GNRS during the show's first six decades... so, by playing a bit with photoshop and putting a little too much yellow in it, it almost looks like the two pics were taken in the late 1950s... Well, almost.
