2017 LA Roadsters Show & Swap Roadster Photo Gallery

Uncategorized June 18, 2017

The LA Roadster Car Club has bene around for 60 years and their cars and their owners are a well-known lot. The Father’s Day show or the LA Roadster Show & Swap as it is officially titled has been around for 53 years. Starting out at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena near Los Angeles, it migrated to the once Great Western Exhibition Center in the City of Commerce, and now rests comfortable at the Pomona Fairplex in Pomona…the home to the Los Angeles County Fair, the NHRA Winternationals drag racing, as well as the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. In fact, Building 4 is the central building for the GNRS but also the main hall for the LA Roadster Show (it’s air conditioned and a great way to get out of the hot SoCal summer temps) and backs up to the museum.

The Fairplex was once home to tank building during World War II, motorcycle dirt track racing (although we hear that has been terminated), and currently the Grand National Roadster Show the home for the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster 10-foot trophy come the end of every January. There is a great deal of history on these grounds and that isn’t lost among those who visit these hallowed grounds for the first time or year after year.

Sit back and take a look at some of the roadsters that made it to the latest edition of the Father’s Day get together SoCal style.
