Old Cars Take On New Life At Ventura Nationals
Car Show Invaded By The Gasoline Girls
It was labor day weekend, and you know what that means… leaving LA for the 100 mile drive to Ventura for the weekend. Although the show’s been going on for 8 years now, this year its name changed from “Primer Nationals” to “Ventura Nationals”… so don’t get confused!
Other then being filled with great cars, good music, a pinup contest… it was extra special because it also marked the first official show that me and my girl’s car club attended together! I’ve been meaning to introduce ya’ll to them, so no time is better then the present – say hello to the Gasoline Girls! We’ve been meeting up and getting together to wrench on one another’s cars for a few months now - and having a darn good time at it!
Waking up early to get our old cars parked at the show is difficult (especially when there’s so many after-hours activities going on!) But its a little easier when there’s a pretty Studebaker waiting for you!
Part of the day was spent talking with other ladies. Hopefully these younger gals will be back next year with their own hot rods! The Gasoline Girls also got to meet up with fellow girl car clubs (that’s right, they DO exist)… the Black Widows and Hell’s Belles were represented at Ventura Nationals as well.
Call it what you want, Ventura Nationals/Primer Nationals…this car show is a good time (even if it does tire a girl out!) Mark your calendars for next Labor Day weekend… the Gasoline Girls will be there!
