2009 Grand National Roadster Show – The Aftermath

2009 America's Most Beautiful Roadster winnerThere’s too many rocking hot rods… the customs… they’re oozing coolness into the ultra-chromed and engraved super-show low riders. It’s too much and perfect all at once. The aftermath is several hundred photos of who knows how many of the toughest cars anywhere. This is the Grand-daddy of them all, the 60th annual, Grand National Roadster Show.

We’re still arranging the hot rod and custom car pics and all there is to say from the Arizona crew that attended the 2009 Grand National Roadster Show. Starting out, we hit the road for Pomona on Saturday at 2 AM then we motored non-stop the whole weekend to try and take it all in. Only the mariachi band provided some relief.

The pictures we took from the show are now loaded: Hot Rods and Customs from GNRS
