This is a fantastic car / airplane / farm equipment / motorcycle / show you will not see anywhere else! Right next to the Pacific Ocean, beautiful weather, surroundings, babes, cars, You will think you've died and gone to heaven....Lots of space to move around, lots of cool stuff to look at, I am going to try to go, this is about the time I will be getting back from vacation in Las Vegas with my wife. I had a great time last year, I couldn't have asked for better company to hang out with for a day.

I have a dream machines virgin that I am going to bring to it.

Guys, you will see everything thing you ever imagined at this show. From the REAL "Milner coupe"..


To a REAL steam roller..


To war birds..


Lowriders and rat rods..


An original Hemi powered air raid siren (yes it worked!)


Vintage SBC powered race boat complete with photos and story.


And this is right next to the famous Half Moon Bay air strip where it is held (we are talking a quarter mile away).


And speaking of a quarter mile, this air strip was the famous Halfmoon Bay drag strip where Tommy Ivo broke into the nines on gas with this twin engine dragster. And there will be plenty of early gassers restored and unrestored there to honor this location.

Here is our discussion on it last year complete with maps and suggestions on times and eating.

Hodrodders West Coast Gathering

And one with all the photos from last year..

Hotrodders get together at the Dream Machine show.


I am telling you guys, if you want a very special day, a very special life experiance this is it! Tell you wife it isn't a "car show", it is an "experiance". The near by town is full of shops, restaurants, there's beaches, live bands, this is a MUST do at least once in your life. So if you live far away, take a few days off from work and come enjoy this amazing event.

And if you don't want to be seen with us, I understand, but come anyway and don't tell us you're there.

Brian

The one thing we did learn last year is that the gates may open up officially at 10:00 am but they let people in much earlier. We went to "check it out" at about 9:30 and drove right in. I HIGHLY recommend that you do the same. This town, and hwy 1 get tied up REAL bad soon after the show opens. So get there and get in and you drive in and can leave a little early without any problem. I do also recommend as I did last year and that is to drive down hwy 1 to hwy 84 to get up and over the hills to 101. 92 out of Halfmoon bay is pretty tough at the end of the day as it is in the morning coming in if you are late.

I had a wonderful drive thru 84 behind a Pantera winding thru the hills.
