With Lion’s Drag Strip Cackle cars, tons of show cars, Don “The Snake” Prudhomme, Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen, and more, the Bixby Knolls Drag Expo was one of the coolest shows in Southern California this weekend and if you weren’t able to make it, we’ve got all the photos you can handle. This event takes up several city blocks in the Bixby Knolls area of Long Beach, and includes one of the coolest cacklefests you’ll find anywhere. They block of the streets, fire them in the intersections, and let it all hang out. Plus there are some of the neatest Nostalgia Drag Cars we’ve ever seen parked on the streets for you to check out. And the coolest part is that the Bixby Knolls area is the high rent district. Fancy shops, restaurants, and high end neighborhoods are what this area is all about, and for one day each year the Nitro fills the air and packs the streets.
The Bixby Knolls Dragster Expo and Car Show is in it’s 7th year and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. We especially liked the Beach City Chevrolet Corvette Funny Car and the Dog House Fiat Topolino Gasser, but they were only a couple examples of the cool stuff on hand.
