Grand National Roadster Show....adventures with Cockgrease

I had been a bit wishy-washy about going down to Pomona to work for my friend Rea helping her sell her pomade Cockgrease. She called me Thursday, begged for my help since this show is one of the biggest car shows in California, so I reluctantly said "yes." I am glad I did...it was a great show and it was awesome getting to spend some quality time with Rea. Rea is an amazing person and I am so grateful to have her as a friend.

Rea and her husband's "Grease Rocket" entered in the show to promote the pomade

Friday, while I was outside smoking, I was approached by a guy who said, "we follow each other's blogs!" It was Rick, from Boston who has a nice little blog 59kustom. Now that I am into this "Blogosphere," I am always delighted to meet someone who's blog I follow or who follows mine. There is an instant comradery.

We were set up in the Suede Palace. There were some of my favorite vendors like My Babyjo, and I bought one of the 40's house dresses. They didn't have a size large in any of the prints, I couldn't believe it when I tried on a Medium and though it was on the tight side, it still looked cute! Liberty was also there, and someday I swear I will buy one of their awesome repro vintage motorcycle sweaters! Great customs were in this room, and my buddy Max was working across the way for Gambino's Customs.

Amazing Cars!












Little Mo and the Dynoflos played!



I met Gene Whitfield!
I went to a show to see the Hexxers play...I was a bit shocked at Rockin' Ryan's and Rory Justice's appearance, but they still rocked out the good old Garage
Had the pleasure of chatting with a member of the Cavaliers Car Club from Long Beach


Overall, it was a great weekend! I saw a lot of friends and met some new ones. If you are into customs and hotrods, this is a show you don't want to miss next year.
