Shifters Viva Las Vegas Show 2011
A great man once said “without hot rods and stuff back then, we wouldn’t have modified cars now.” Actually, he’s not that great – it was our Scary last Tuesday – but the point still stands.
Yes, as the UK’s top ambassadors for car culture we realise what we do right now is a direct descendent of all this old skool Yank metal and that, my friends, makes it not only of substantial evolutionary importance, but more awesome than even we dare to imagine.
Anyway, the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas hosts the world famous ‘Rockabilly Weekender,’ a four day festival dedicated to everything retro-cool and packed with stuff like vintage fashion shows, pool parties, bands and burlesque comps.
Of course our particular highlight has to be the massive car show they lay on in the back lot which is packed-out with nearly a thousand examples of what only can be described as proper old skool automotive art.
Just check out this lot…
