The second edition of the LA Roadster Show Model Car Event is in the books and was a great success! Thanks to all the fantastic builders that came out to the show and wowed the public, hot rod industry insiders, and the LA Roadsters members themselves. We filled the tables to capacity with some of the highest quality models you will find anywhere.

We even got some pillars of the hot rodding community to participate, including the legendary Gene Winfield!
