When Dangerous Toys got together and started this show five years ago, they wanted to throw a show that all of the Nor Cal and So Cal enthusiasts could come together with friends and club members in a centrally located area to hang with their clubs, Friends, and family to have a good time and help keep the scene still alive.
While that idea is the major reason for the huge success of this show, it still remains the same today and will continue for years to come. The only major difference between now and then is that the show has grown over four times the size and only continues to get bigger.
For this year's show, Danger Zone captured the title as the largest one-day show on the West Coast, hands down. With people gathering from all over Cali, and the surrounding states, there were also people that rolled out from as far as Colorado to see what this heavy hitter event had to offer. With perfect weather and over 1,200 of the sickest rides on the show circuit today including tons of feature and cover vehicles, this show will definitely help keep the West Coast on the map! For more information, check out Dangerous-toys.org and be sure to mark your calendars for next year's event as it promises to be even bigger and better.
