Iron Invasion

Iron Invasion year 2 - bigger and better.  The word sure spread about this show and I couldn't believe how big it was.  There were tons of great rides and this year there was a huge motorcycle presence.  And of course there was fab live music and a one of a kind pin up contest, with a separate Mr. Invasion portion.  I wasn't sure what to expect with that one but it was actually really funny.  

Not even a hefty shower could quell the Invasion.  I've never seen a car show where rain did not cause a mass exodus.  It was a good thing there were 5 indoor buildings to take shelter in.  I might add the buildings were filled with awesome vendors, car and motorcycle displays.  So, it really wasn't too much of a hardship to hang out. and wait out the rain.  

It seems like the "child" of the famed Hunnert Car Pile Up has got some legs and I think we will be seeing many more Invasions in the years to come.  Cast an eyeball for yourself and you'll see what I mean.

There is always something cool and unexpected at these shows.  Here's one of my favorites from this year's Iron Invasion - a flame throwing mini bike.  If this kid is the future of hot rodding, I'm excited!

Til the next time - Keep on Kruzin!
