    Blood Drive CarShow 2018 @ Veterans Memorial Stadium
    Mar 3 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
    Blood Drive CarShow 2018 @ Veterans Memorial Stadium | Lafayette | IN | United States

    This is not an official FB event entry created by its producers. For more info see: https://www.blooddrivecarshow.com/longbeach

    ” BLOOD DRIVE CARSHOW MISSION:

    When we sat down to conceive of a new car show; we wanted to do one with a purpose that benefits society -medically. Considering just how many of us American’s are without sufficient insurance coupled with the recent natural disasters and Las Vegas incident; it became apparent as to our daily shortage of blood supply.

    Fact: Blood has a 2-week shelf life. Any inventory not used in that time frame is diluted and flushed.

    This keeps the supply chain stretched at all times. Then, add on any large incident that occurs and we’ve got a daily problem.

    Fact: Being heavily tattooed does NOT prevent you from being a donor. That is a myth!

    We are partnering with Lifesource and American Red Cross to bring them blood donations, and assist in raising financial contributions.

    We have pledged FREE Admission for those who donate a pint of blood during the event. We encourage you to sign-up and commit to donate at any one of the blood drives exhibiting at the show and make a cash donation no matter what size.

    We and Our Partners Thank You for Your Support!

    Enjoy the Drive! ”

    Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend @ Orleans Hotel
    Apr 19 – Apr 21 all-day

    The car show, which started out as a side attraction to the indoor acts, has now taken on a candy-colored life of its own. Many people come just for the car show only. The car side of Viva Las Vegas started with a bunch of young hot rodders in the Shifters Car Club of Los Angeles who rolled in with around 30 cars during the first couple of years. In contrast, this year’s blowout featured over 800 vehicles and over 13,000 fans. While many drive their vehicles, thousands come from around the globe just to peep at the traditional hot rods and customs. Different nationalities, people of different religions, different languages, and different colors – it doesn’t really matter. They’re here for a good time blending hot rods, hot rod Betty’s, rockin’ tunes, greased up hair and whiskey. Lots of whiskey! Sleep is elusive in the town that never sleeps.

    Gassers were built for drag racing and typically had a larger, more powerful, modified engine. Superchargers and mechanical fuel injection were typical modifications which have become commonplace in modern automobiles Gassers often appear to be top heavy and ungainly due to raised front ends which assist in the rearward weight transfer during drag racing. Exhaust pipes (no mufflers) often exit through the front fender well and sometimes straight up through the hood area. Bodies were often painted in flamboyant metalflakes, pearls, and candy finishes complemented ADM is proud to present this important and sometimes overlooked segment of automotive history to our visitors. Many innovations in automotive racing design and technologies were pioneered by the Gassers some of which have become commonplace in modern automobiles. Come see these fabulous vehicles and hear from the “real gasser” people in a forum setting.
