When trying to make a good thing better the obvious approach is to add more of whatever made it popular in the first place. When it came to improving the Grand National Roadster Show, promoter John Buck did just that by adding more cars to look at with the Grand Daddy Drive-In.

Basically the concept is an indoor show surrounded by an outdoor show, something made possible by SoCal’s climate and the open space between the buildings housing the show cars. The benefits of this unique event are participants get VIP parking on the grounds, receive a dash plaque, goodie bag (pre-registered only), and admission to the show, and showgoers have several hundred more cars to look at. It’s your basic win-win situation.

This year was the 63rd Grand National Roadster show and the 7th Grand Daddy Drive-In, and both keep getting better every year. Just goes to show you can never have too much of a good thing.
