   This was the premier show for the new Nostalgia Rod & Custom Association, and it looks like they did a great job!

Hi All
     Greetings from Sacramento!  The Nostalgia Rod & Custom Association put on a really great show.  I had a great time and met some nice people.  These cars were all award winners. The owners took home either a trophy or a real nice wall plaque.
     Some of these cars were past award winners at previous shows. The 2004 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster was there, and a few other cars that dominated the indoor show scene, this year and last year.  My car (winner of Joe Bailon Award of Excellence, 2004 Sacramento Autorama) was located inside also.  The quality of most of the cars outside, could have been inside.  They were awesome!  Some of them were indoors at earlier shows. The quality of cars at this show was amazing.  Now to get on with viewing the show!!!  Enjoy....... Brian!!!

Per the owner, this '67 Chevelle has a 600 HP motor in it.  When you hear it run, you know he's not lying!

I took a video of this car idling in gear!  Amazing!  When it went past me, I swore I smelled alcohol (fuel)!

This truck had a real nice stance!

This guy is at all the big shows.  The thing is, he's from Nevada and drives to the events.  Gotta drive 'em too!

This car was one of the dominate cars last year.  It won everything too.  If you spend 40 grand on just the interior and it has blower under hood, it better win.  Awsome car.

Goldrush!

This is the baddest coupe around.  Around the Nation!  It has a Hemi, two quads, and spindle mount Halibrands.  It won the Bad Attitude Pick.  It was at the Grand National Roadster Show, and placed 1st at Sacramento earlier this year!
