The Grand National Roadster Show’s tagline is “The Grand Daddy of Them All,” and that is as true as could ever be. In 2022—the 72nd annual—we got extra lucky because promoters wanted to celebrate 50 Years of Truckin’. Once we heard that, we knew we couldn’t miss it. 

They sure did pack the Fairplex in Pomona, California, full of trucks. I saw so many trucks that I recognized from when I was a kid. Fat Jack’s F-100 and Chip Foose’s F-100s were so iconic to me in my youth. Being able to see them and so many other timeless pieces of truckin’ history was astounding.

Then to bring it to the modern age, we had Classic Car Studio’s incredible Fat Fender crew cab on display that they recently finished up. Kent Matranga brought out my all-time favorite 1961 F-100 Unibody that was built by Jason Graham Hot Rods. The list just goes on and on and on.
