The Grand National Roadster Show brings in the best of everything in the hot rod world… and dead smack in the middle of hot rod culture is art. In this case, it’s pinstriping!

If you wandered down to the far end of the Main Hall at the Pomona Fairplex, you might have seen these “artists” at work. Artists? I’d say yes.  Big hearted, generous and talented should also be thrown out! The pinstripers are here for a charity auction to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Great deals are had on one of a kind pinstriping pieces, or if you’re not that committed, come get your phone, sunglasses, camera – whatever!! Pinstriped for a donation.


Pictures here are a few of my favorites. I love metal flake paint, as you can see, so I’m a sucker for the combo of flake and pinstriping. Plus… the pinstripers can be “colorful” with their language and sometimes their subjects!

Reminds me of my dad! I once complained my automatic equipped car wasn’t shifting from first to second… he said, “Put your foot in it!!”

Ah yes… down with all forms of vinyl pinstriping. There ought to be a LAW!!
