Pomona, California just finished up another great car show. The 2013 Grand National Road Show ran from Friday Jan 25 to Sunday Jan 27, 2013. This show was once held in Oakland California but has been held at the Pomona Fairplex for the past 10 years. Both the Grand National and the Sacramento Autorama which will be coming up later this month are put on by O;Reilly auto parts.

The Grand National is a fairly large show with 500 vehicles in the Fairplex buildings and usually another 400-800 between the buildings so you can continue to check out cars as you walk between the Fairplex buildings.

This year the Grand National Road Show had a Aloha theme with the featured buildings housing 9 exibits displaying “surf Vehicles”.
