In California we really don’t have “seasons” so right after our official car show schedule ends in December the new one starts in January and the kickoff event is a big one, the Grand National Roadster Show. Yea, the name implies a lot of street rods, but over the years the show has grown to include just about everything in the automotive spectrum. In addition to the aforementioned street rods there are muscle cars, customs, trucks, low riders, rat rods, gassers and woodys.

As a special treat this year there’s also a whole building dedicated to 60 years of the Tri-Five Chevy. Yep, row after row of 1955, 1956, and 1957 Chevys all shined up and ready to be drooled over.

The big prize of the show is for the AMBR award (America’s Most Beautiful Roadster). Absolutely insane amounts of work go into these cars and the judging is cut throat, so it’s anyone’s guess who will claim top honors.

The show runs for three days, so if you’re ever in the SoCal area in late January you should definitely make plans to come check some of the nicest rides in the country. Oh, and while there were a ton so sweet Chevys to check out be forewarned that there a few other makes sprinkled in the mix as well. For more info check out www.rodshows.com
