The third edition of the Model Car Event at the LA Roadster Show is now complete, and remains one of the funnest shows on the Southern California model car scene. For the first time this year, a Foose Build off class was added, with the only allowed entries being those built from the Revell Foose kits of which the subjects are the cars designed by noted car builder and television personality Chip Foose. This was fully sanctioned by Foose Design, and the winner was chosen by Chip Foose himself!

Chip was incredibly supportive of our event, and not only picked the Foose class winner, but also filled in to pick the Best Paint and Best Roadster awards! The legendary Gene Winfield was going to be our Best Paint judge for the second year in a row on his 91st birthday, but he got delayed getting to the show. Thankfully, Gene did show up, just shortly after our awards ceremony. Not too late, however, to see the incredible diorama display model master John Teresi built of Gene’s iconic auto shop, as well as John’s brand new replica build of the Wild Cad painted by Winfield. Gene was ecstatic with the display.

Mike Herman from H&H Flatheads chose our best Engine winner for the second straight year, and we were very honored to have him do that.

Tamiya generously supported the Top Five, along with our Best Paint and Best Engine Awards. Pro Tech donated a prize package for the Best Roadster class, and Foose Design, of course, added prizes for the Best Foose.

This show is definitely a showcase event for the model car scene, with thousands of people flowing through the vendor building during the weekend. The public also chose the Tamiya Top Five award winners by people’s choice voting, with almost 400 votes this weekend!

Should we be invited back for a fourth edition, make plans early to be there. It’s an event you don’t want to miss, and we need all the support we can get to keep getting invited back!

Congratulations to the award winners!

That looks like such a cool event. Great Pics and I'm very happy for our forum members and other contestants who got to brush with greatness. You guys are so lucky to be so close to the vortex of car culture. Kudos to you Art, it looks like it was a lot of work, but that's what it takes to play with the big boys. Well done.

Thanks, Peter! Good to hear from you. I haven't been on YouTube in a while, so I need to get back out there and see what you've been up to.

Yeah, Dave, we had some good builds. Fraternizing with the hot rod community, and showing them what we can do was fun too.

Hi Phil, thank you for looking! Did you skip your event the last couple of years? I thought that you started the same time as this one.

Deuce Days was always an every three year event and 2016 was supposed to be the last one but the organizer was talked into doing it again 2019 this time with city and provincial help. If all goes well it might even happen again in 2022!! There is a caravan of hot rods that come from LA so some of the same cars will be at both the LA Roadster Show and Deuce Days. Maybe I can send you a poster for your event next year.

It was sure cool seeing Gene Winfield checking things out. That guy continues to live such an incredible life.

Oh, I see. I didn't realize it wasn't annual. Well, I hope it goes well for you next year! I would be happy to fly a poster for you next year.

Yes, Gene is an incredible guy. I'm glad I got to meet him a couple of times. Chip was really great with us too.
