LARS —2019

The 55th LARS was a success in my book. Numbers were up in all categories from the previous two years. We stayed all day Saturday and enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting new ones at this historic roadster show. Groups from all over the world attending this prestigious event.

Our group arrived early without any problems and were guided to a nice parking spot with a grassy area for our chairs. We all went our separate ways which included the huge swap meet, specialty car parking and vendor area. They were all located close to the roadsters and a Tram service was provided for those who needed the service. Time passed quickly and we headed to the BBQ dinner provided to roadster owners.

Everyone thought the show was very well organized and thought out for the convenience of the attendees and spectators. We headed home dreaming of what a fantastic Father’s Day show we had just participated in. And how lucky we were to still be able to drive our roadsters on this special weekend. Looking foreword to next years show.

Thanks to the LAR club for their efforts in bringing this show back from last year’s poor showing. You all deserve a big Thank You!

Stay Tooned!


Registration was well organized and we were escorted to our parking spot very quickly.
