Hosted by West Coast Kustoms, this event is THE premiere kustom car event in the USA. I decided at short notice to fly over from Oz for a 4-day trip just for this event. My mate Larry Cricelli said “yes” almost immediately when asked to come with me! What a blast we had! All the custom gurus attend (Gene Winfield, George Barris, Bill Hines, John D’Agostino & Richard Zocchi). You NEED to go! 576 photos here!
A ‘bomb’ is a ‘fat fendered’ pre-1954 automobile, usually of round or curvy bodystyle. A bomba is usually refered to as a lowrider and is the earliest style within the lowrider scene, showing the ‘roots’ of the movement. Low ‘n’ slow is the motto, and ‘style’ is king. The ‘Viejitos’ club is the worlds largest, with many chapters in various countries (incl Adelaide, Sth Australia).
