Before heading to the beach on Labor Day we always spend Saturday morning up in Ventura for the annual Ventura Nationals car show. The car show has become a weekend event including a Friday night cruise and art show, plus Sunday reliability run and BBQ. We always look forward to cruising up the 101 on Saturday morning to check out some killer customs and hot rods.
|A big draw for the past few years has been the Lost Angels Children's Project giveaway car. Each year, the Ventura Nationals promotes a custom car build and raffle to benefit the Lost Angels. The charity promotes art and automobile restoration to at-risk teens. This year's custom car was this Chevy Apache pickup that someone drove home on Saturday night.
