Day one at the 2012 Grand National Roadster show was a great one! The crowds are normally lighter on Friday because it is a work day but this year seemed to be a bit heavier. Thankfully with media credentials we can get into the show an hour before the doors open to get some shots. After the morning press conference we head straight to the buildings where the Lowriders were set up.

Jose from Imperials CC Los Angeles and his newly patterned Monte Carlo.

Rick Dore built this Lincoln Zephyr for Metallica’s James Hetfield. One word: Beautiful!

A trio of great guys. Fast Cracker Tom Foster, Steve Castillo (Owner of the sickest Harley out) and master painter Steve DeMan.
