Allen Greenspan Car show at Tweety park in Southgate with Slim....

The title bout say's it all. Today I went to meet Slim at the the Allen Greenspan Car Show in Southgate, in Tweedy Park.  I talk to Slim about it on the phone and when he told me it was in Southgate, and Allen Greenspan was involved I was more than a little perplexed.  A car show in that neighborhood was not going to be about bobbers and Rat rods. Well I was right, it was all about lowriders and apehangered dressers and such.  These kats never saw the likes of Slim coming.  Slim was invited by the LaPalma dudes who are giving away a nice Sportster that Slim has done much of the work on as a promotional deal for their clothing line. So they had their booth there and Slim had the one right next door with his van and one of his bikes on display.
   There was a lot of interest in Slim's van and as usual he spent much of his time talking to the passers bye, answering their multitude of questions.  It was a nice change to get away from all the same ol same ol stuff we always see everywhere we go.  Lots of talent on display and no junk at all.  These guys love their cars in a BIG way.
    I have some pics and a few video's of ridning in Slim's CRAZY wheely van.  Don't have time to post it all up today but here's a little to wet the appetite.....

This Galaxie is fucking awsome and can this guy paint!!!!Didn't catch his name but he's out of Starlite rod and Kustom in Torrance. You might want to check them

Here's a lorider with a blower...who knew?

The amount of detail on this truck was astounding. tender loving care everywhere.

Slim's back door...quite a contrast from all the chrome and polish surrounding us. That's my God Damn buddy.
