Custom Car Show – Motor Down To Motorama

2010 Motorama Custom Car Show

Just when you thought the car show season was coming to the end, there’s one more you don’t want to miss! The Long Beach Motorama, featuring the Showcase of Kustoms, was created specifically to feature the top custom cars being built today. Not only that, but there’s plenty of history too. Motorama is modeled after the custom car show begun in 1958 by the Renegades Car Club and  recognizes important builders, cars, and individuals from hot rodding history. To be sure that the Long Beach Motorama draws some of the most impressive custom builds around, it features a Kustom D’Elegance award that’ll earn the skillful car builder a $20,000 purse!

While the cars in competition for the Kustom D’Elegance award are fantastic, I wanted to give ya’ll a chance to see the variety of other cars that showed up. From mild to radical customs, pickups to lowriders – this was a very well-rounded show! Scroll on down through this pick of ten from Mitzi (try not to drool on your keyboard) and be sure to leave a comment below and let everyone know which one you like the best!
