52nd Exhibition
Show and Swap Meet

2016 Show News

Year 2016 will be the 52nd time the Los Angeles Roadsters Car Club has produced its world renowned show and the 37th year it will be held at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.

The show will be held on Father's Day Weekend, Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19, 2016 at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.

Show hours for Saturday are 7:00 am - 5:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am - 4:00 pm.

There’s something for everyone at the L.A. Roadster Show. Late model enthusiasts will find swappers and manufacturers with many of the parts they are looking for, while early car parts will be in abundance for the fellows who are restoring antiques or building that special new car. Come and see the West Coast’s largest trade show, where over 200 manufacturers and vendors of reproduction hot rod parts and accessories will display their products and services. They will have their own special section outside and in Exhibitor Building #4.


Enter through main Gate #1 off McKinley Avenue. The main attraction will be the hundreds of 1936 and older open cars of all types and makes; some original, some modified, but all of the highest quality and completely finished with glossy paint and finished interior, painstakingly restored to the owner's preference. Over 900 roadsters entered the show in 2014.

No flat or suede painted roadsters allowed in Roadster Parking. Primered or suede roadsters will be referred to Specialty Parking. No cruising the fairgrounds for liability reasons.

Roadster driver is free and $20 per passenger for the weekend. Children under 12 are free.

Spectator Gate  

Enter Gate #9 off White Avenue or Gate #15 off Arrow Highway.

Show hours for Saturday will be 7:00 am to
5:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Saturday, admission is $20 per person. Two-day weekend pass is $30.

Sunday, in honor of Father's Day, admission is only $10 per Father. Children under 12 are free.

There will be tram service available during show hours from one end of the show to the other.

Specialty Parking 

Enter Gate #15 off Arrow Highway. Specialty parking is for Pre-75 cars only. Classics, hot rods and other special interest cars will be entered in this large parking area, forming a huge car show. This is also a perfect area to enter cars for sale because it has become a known fact that this is the perfect place to buy or sell a cool car.

On Saturday, admission is $10 per car and $20 per person. Children under 12 are free.

On Sunday, admission is $20 per car load.

New in 2016, we will feature Parking Corrals for Deuces, Muscle Cars and Customs. Be sure to check them out!


By popular demand the Cacklefest is returning again this year. The Cacklefest will feature 15 nasty fuel-burning nitro-infested dragsters and altereds. They will burn your eyes and shake your bones as you get up close to our Cacklefest Exhibition. They will fire up on Saturday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm in the Specialty Parking area.

80 Years of '36's

We will be celebrating the 80th Anniversary of the 1936 Ford (and 1935's too). We will offer featured parking in Roadster Parking and in Specialty Parking areas for all 1936 Ford Models. Participants will receive a free souvenir.
