Hot Rods and Hops

Written by  Rikki Kirchner
Another early morning had us up at 5:00 am driving East into the sun headed towards the Anheuser-Busch Los Angeles Brewery in Van Nuys, California. Here we met up with the Burbank Road Kings, who had a special invite for the 1st Annual Charity Car Show benefiting the United Way of Greater Los Angeles.

A pancake breakfast was on the menu, cooked up by the Burbank Kiwanis for Fun Foundation and Tony Wade suited up with his apron ready to feed the hungry ones!

The RodFathers were well represented in the main staging area. Such a joy to see their happy faces enjoying this event.

Galpin Motors and Galpin Auto Sports (G.A.S.) graced the show field with some of their prized beauties! There were many beautiful cars in attendance. The vendor area had everything from t-shirts and hats to drought resistant plants. The $5 price of admission for walk-in spectators included a wristband for the bottomless beer tasting.

The main purpose of this event was to benefit the United Way of Greater Los Angeles helping the Veterans in the Van Nuys Area. Of course, coming together at a great venue like this to look at a bunch of great cars and meet people is a great reason to have a car show!

The weather Gods were cooperating as the temperatures were mild and the sun was not beating down on us like the week before. The cold beer was a bonus for some.

There were 10 awards given to the best in class. These unique laser cut awards were well distributed and well deserved!

As usual, the rides were awesome and the host brewery was top notch! A special thank you to Road King, Bruce Borst for setting up the scene for the Road Kings to roll out in style for this fun day! We’ll be back next year.
