Atomic Bombshell

Pater Noster

Roadster ShowThis past Father’s Day was an automotive extravaganza. Dad and I kicked off the day at the LA Roadster Show at Fairplex in Pomona. We saw hundreds of road rods and it was really neat, even for someone like me, who knows little about classic cars.

Dad is building a “rot rod” in the garage, so after the show he took me for a spin, where he really opened up the engine for the first time. Particularly fun since there’s no windshield on it yet… Bug splatter on my cheek was sheer delight.

After that, we got some lunch and then headed over to Paseo Colorado where there just happened to be another car show. We looked over the gloss-covered beauties while waiting to see the latest movie from Pixar, which so perfectly matched the theme of the day: Cars.

From my dad’s perspective it was probably the best Father’s Day ever… Mission accomplished!

    Sounds like a blast. Even the bugs wouldn’t be all that bad. You can kinda expand the theme a bit… you’ve got Pixar’s Cars and now you’ve got their A Bug’s Life. Well, I guess it would be more of A Bug’s Death than anything, but that’s just nitpicking.

    Sorry the comment is almost a week late, but Bloglines just now showed this post. May have to check your site the traditional way.

    It’s not Bloglines… I’ve been saving up these blog posts and loading them whenever I have a moment with internet access.

    I love cars of all kinds (excepting PT Cruisers and Honda Elements and those awful Aztec things) especially old hot rods!

    And I LOVED the movie Cars.. KA-CHOW!!!

    That’s so sweet… You’ve inspired me to go do a bonding thing with my father.

    Let your dad know I’m loving his hot rod!
