Straight Buggin Show

What a great turn out for an unexpected show, well for myself. After a month or so of freezing ass cold weather, the sun finally decided to surface and beam down upon us. There were several car clubs present and new rides I have never seen before. The show was held at Downey high school's parking lot, with plenty of room. K-Earth was also on hand dropping the oldies. Big shout out to all the winners and mad props to the Straight Buggin club for putting on a cool little show.

This Bay Window with lots of og paint and a hint of patina, was the crowd pleaser. It was for me.

I was digging on this beetle as well. I have a soft spot for Dove Blue rides.

This bus was bad ass ....... an early 1955 Wolfsburg Kombi. I hope the owner does some justice to this old bird.

Addition to the familia ........... 1971 Westfalia

Many of you have been following this blog for some years and know first hand how long I've been on the hunt for a camper. A split window camper was out of the question as we all know, they are very EXPENSIVE! And after touring Europe in my 71 Westy, I figured I'd get one when I returned. But that was a rude awakening upon my return. I noticed TONS of campers out in Europe during my travels and never thought about where they were coming from? They were coming from the Colonies! JODER! When I returned I was on the hunt for one buy gave up really easily and I found out what they were going for. But one day, thanks to Comrade Dougie, I was offered a 1971 Westafalia. I bought it from a gentleman by the name of Inky Ford. He had to sell it as he was being charged for tax evasion and offered it to me for what he had into it. which was almost nothing! He basically gave it away, or gave it to me. This bus is so freakin clean! or as they say in España .......... Joder tio, este furgo esta de puta madre! And literally. This bus still has all of its original interior and is complete! Even the jumper stool and original flooring is still there. Everything is there. It does need some work but its nothing I can't sort out. We plan on taking tons of camping trips on this one and plan a road trip up to Canada eh.

Majestics New Years Day Picnic

What a way to start the new year ........... Low riders, bombs, bbq and beers. Every year the Majestics low rider club hosts their annual picnic on New Years Day. I've heard of this event for many years but never made it due to serious hangovers. This year Pück and I chilled new years eve and woke up early and headed out to Santa Fe Dam in Irwindale. We got there just a little before noon and the park was PACKED!!! I even heard that after 12:00 noon, they weren't allowing any cars to enter!? I have NO idea how many rides were present as there were modern cars there as well. What a day! If any of you guys ever get a chance to hit this show, DO IT! It's well worth. Anywhere the eye ventured a beautiful old car was there. I've never seen so many 30's bombs in one place, and 40's galore. Any hoot, the pictures posted up in this mug speak for themselves. ORALEEE !!!!!
