This one-day Southern California show is about as relaxing as a Sunday afternoon cookout at the park. Actually, that's pretty much what it always has been, but this year, the show seemed to hit record capacity. The relaxin' aspect of the show remained the same, but to check out all the show had to offer, a brisk walk was definitely in order.
Held at Alpine's North American headquarters, the entire parking lot was overtaken by some sort of custom vehicle or another. Hell, the entire block was zoned off for the day, and the RA staff had no problems using up nearly every square foot of space.
With the cool ocean breeze blowing in from the Pacific just a few miles away from the showground, the comfort level stayed on chill mode the entire day—a true So Cal environment. And for the icing on this custom cake, tons of giveaways from Alpine, Kinetik, Air Zenith, and nearly every vendor at the show were showered on the crowd.
This show's a good time, so don't miss it next year.
