Ventura Nationals 2013


The following information is reposted from OLD GOLD GARAGE CO. blog by Dan Collins

"New ownership of the show is bringing some long overdue changes. Custom vans and vintage lowriders are now welcome. Also the bike part of the show that all but died off is coming back in a big way. This year Old Gold is sponsoring and organizing the motorcycle show within the Nats. There are custom trophies being made by seriously talented builders and fabricators, giveaways, special guests, vendors, and a motorcycle corral outside the show for non show bikes. The focus of the bike show is pre Evo  American choppers and vintage tin, Brit bikes, Japanese choppers, cafe bikes etc. Baggers and billet barges will be allowed to park in the bike corral but not inside the show. This is the first year the show is open to Japanese brands. Evo sportsters and big twins that are customized and fit the show vibe will be allowed in at the discretion of the show employees. The entry is $15 for the bike and rider to participate in the show. There will be live music, food, artists, pinstripers etc. right accross from the beach at the Ventura County Fairgrounds which is the same location as the David Mann Chopperfest. Saturday August 31st. For info on being a vendor go to venturanationals.com"


We'll be cruising up from the Gasser Lounge again this year and will post more information on that as we near the event date if you want to join us for the ride up PCH ~ Lady Hump

Sounds like someone's actually thought about it seriously, makes a nice change.

For sure. It was wayyyy too "exclusive" in years past. Some "bending of the rules" had taken place but there was still a "atmosphere" of exclusion that hopefully now has evaporated! Cheers... it's not like we'll be judging the new owners or anything... not us?!... well, maybe online in a review or something... but no one reads this blog so no worries...

Funny how gigs like this became elitist and remote from the roots over the years mate, thank god there seems to be a change in the wind . . . I'm sure there's still a few folk out there actually 'reading', well, maybe two.
