In 1960 the club started the annual LA Roadster Show & Swap Meet. The event has become the largest gathering of pre-1936 roadsters in the world with over 800 in attendance. There is also a designated parking area for non roadsters (coupes, sedans, trucks, muscle cars etc) up to 1977. The large swap meet is guaranteed to have some rare finds and the manufacture’s midway vendors are some of the biggest and best in the hot rod and performance parts business.
There are many groups of roadsters and other hot rods driven from all over the country and Canada to be at this event. It’s not unusual to see groups from TN, NC, TX, WA or OH that drove their hot rods out just for the LA Roadster Show weekend.
The roadster and driver get in free - others pay a $20 fee. Each roadster also gets a free mug on Sunday and a BBQ on Saturday at 5pm at the fairgrounds. Show admission is just $20.
The Los Angeles Roadsters car club was formed in 1957 and is still going strong today. The membership consists of pre-1936 roadsters.
