Here’s Grippo’s third gallery of photos from the Mid-Atlantic Nationals, and if you missed our previous galleries use the link below!
(Words and Photos by Joe Grippo) Long live the indoor car show, especially when it’s 30 degrees outside like it was the other weekend here in my home state of Pennsylvania. We got warmed up in the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa while attending the Mid-Atlantic Indoor Nationals Custom Car and Truck Show. Recently fellow BangShifter Scott Liggett shared some indoor show stuff from the mid-west, now I am bringing you some northeast flavor.
This show was heavy on muscle cars and street machines, add in a few hot rods, motorcycles, plus lifted and slammed trucks, and much more, so there was something for everyone. Some build trends are going strong like Pro Touring and perfect chalk mark and paint dab restorations. Period correct builds are gaining in popularity, the 60’s and 70’s Day 2 look (I hate that term) is strong and even some styles from the 80’s are making a resurgence. Furthermore, I can happily report Rat Rods seemed in short supply and that Pro Street is absolutely not dead.
This show sort of unofficially kicks off our car show and racing seasons here in the northeast region, so as the weather starts to break, car folks will get to take it to the streets and racetracks again. Let’s go…but first, dig on what I saw at the show.
