So, we made it through this weekend’s Grand National Roadster Show and, most importantly, our collaboration with LMC Truck: the Keep On Truckin’: 50 Years of Classic Haulers once-in-a-lifetime exhibit.

With over 100 classic trucks, vans, and mini-trucks crammed in the spacious Building 9 at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA, you’d think that’d be enough to see … but no. This year’s GNRS featured more trucks outside and within the adjacent buildings than we’d ever seen to date. Not only did Relaxed Atmosphere do a great job of wrangling up some club members to park outside the Keep On Truckin’ exhibit, but the GNRS traditional Granddaddy Drive-In also managed to reel in a ton of trucks Friday through Sunday. Just goes to show how strong and thriving this portion of the hobby is—and a great segue way into the upcoming Grand National Truck Show!

Be sure and mark your calendars for September 16-17, two weekends following Labor Day. Rod Shows is proud to announce the inaugural Grand National Truck Show here at the Fairplex—a gathering of “all things with a bed” as they put it Thursday when the show was first announced. From street rods to late-models, turn-of-the-century restorations to full-blown customs, if it was meant to haul, it’s meant to show at the GNTS!

Once again, thanks to all the owners/builders who graciously took the time and effort to be a part of the historic Keep On Truckin’ exhibit this past weekend. We hope to see as many of you return in September.
