Going to be a close one. I pick up car (hopefully) Thursday from upholstery & to So Cal’s open house Friday.  Hope nothing goes wrong at upholstery! Other than upholstery, car is done & road tested.

The show was extremely quiet  location heard less than threel hundred roadsters   no lines at food stands and the swap meet had vendors but very few shopper's   we actually Drove up  and down around  1 pm
I guess a lot did not agree with the increase costs    $50 for roadsters and $75 for specialty parking 
My one friend said they wanted  $1500 for a small  outside vendor spot so he  went for a swap spot and still did not break even

Attendance was way down , and all the people  I met were  disappointed

I've edited this for clarity as I quoted the wrong post from Davy earlier, I wanted to use his post regarding the cost of swap spaces.

For $1500 a space they should have given him a free hotel room and lunch too. Granted it wasn't the LA Roadsters but I sold at the Iron Invasion in Woodstock, IL last October. Huge turnout of cars and spectators, $10 for a swap space with no pre entry needed, take as much room as you need (within reason, of course) and I turned over a grand in about three hours.
I get that the Roadsters membership is probably weary of coordinating the show, no doubt it is a lot of work and likely those guys are tired of the hassle, but I wonder if they might live to regret the deal they made with the new regime. JMO, as an outsider who has not attended that show since 1976.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

If those pictures were taken on Saturday the attendance on Sunday would have been probably half as much.  Was thinking of going out there on Sunday but I've gotten tired of sitting in the 90 deg. heat like its been for the last couple of years.

Thanks for the pics Davy and for Beppie who downloaded them. There is certainly room to move as most pics show no crowds and a scarcity of hot rods. It will be intersting to see what transpires next year. Maybe a sign of the times ??

Lot's of feedback that it was the dying of a era.........even an amount of panic from people that have a lot of parts that they have been collecting (hoarding) over the years with the hopes of "cashing in".  Some people think that "...they stayed to late at the fair...."   Seems as though the "carpetbaggers" were the most disappointed.  I look at this as an evolution of the HOBBY, and look to the younger members to develop the next phases.  Friend of mine was at a gas station in King City as the San Francisco boys rolled through, and said that all of the cars were driven by "silver haired pot belly guys like us!"  Maybe, but it seems as though the guys that are building "basic" fun hot rods are doing  it like the post-war crowd.  The pendulum swings.....................

Nice synopsis - but I have never attended so my view is way different from others who have attended over the years.  This year may be an anomaly; time will tell.  The main thing to remember is that this is still a very important show for some people, and the show will continue as long as that interest exists.  I have planned to go for years; this is still on my bucket list.

I live down-the-street from the Fairplex, Irwindale and Fontana and have the luxury of attending plenty of shows (and drags).  After a while,
all those shows begin to look the same and interest fades.  I stayed home this year more due to the heat then anything else.  The VW Classic
was held at the Orange County Fairgrounds the same day as LARS... something I never missed a few years ago but my interests moved onto
something else.  Maybe next year, it'll be a little cooler...

the last two photos at least look like EARLY morning. I kinda like that flat dawn lighting. I love the blue 5 window!
Blue five window taken about noon    will have lots more to post when I get home  made it to Tucumcari for today   too hot for the roadster guys

Attendance was way down , and all the people  I met were  disappointed
I was actually referring to the photo below that, with the bronze tudor, as appearing to be a morning shot. The sharp edged shadow in the 5 window photo points to it being later in the day.

So the shaft on the American shock unscrews from the cap and falls apart.......yup.   steel fender on this beauty now has a stripe of burnt paint.........we got lucky and a small shop with one bay came to the rescue,  we borrowed a 9/16 bottoming tap and repaired the aluminum cap,  then they actually had a spring compressor and we put the shock back together.   Turns out there are two set screws one on top of the other that lock the threads,  the bottom set screw was never  tightened from the factory.   We got it patched up in about an hour.

So after supper we went to Walden's,  but those pics were on my cell phone and Beppie already shared them.......
now we are up early and waiting for the gates to open at the roadster show.......

Our friend Wendal had sold his all original 41 Woodie and then needed another, so he stepped up and bought this 50 Ford,  air ride, fuel injected 5 liter with a 5 speed and all the amenities..............

I've edited this for clarity as I quoted the wrong post from Davy earlier, I wanted to use his post regarding the cost of swap spaces.

For $1500 a space they should have given him a free hotel room and lunch too. Granted it wasn't the LA Roadsters but I sold at the Iron Invasion in Woodstock, IL last October. Huge turnout of cars and spectators, $10 for a swap space with no pre entry needed, take as much room as you need (within reason, of course) and I turned over a grand in about three hours.
I get that the Roadsters membership is probably weary of coordinating the show, no doubt it is a lot of work and likely those guys are tired of the hassle, but I wonder if they might live to regret the deal they made with the new regime. JMO, as an outsider who has not attended that show since 1976.

To clarify further,  $1500 was an outside spot in vender alley,  not the swap meet. 
 swap meet was $80 for one, $ 100 for two spaces 10 x 20
