Rock 'Em Out Car Show and Rockabilly Day brought cool cars and crazy characters to Zona Rosa
I think this was envisioned as sort of a upscale shopping version of the Greaserama show, and there were a few gritty hot rods, girls with bright red lipstick, and guys with their jeans rolled up. There were a couple of newer cars slipped in there, like a Chevy SSR and a Plymouth Prowler. But really, what do you expect when you're a block away from an Old Navy store? I kind of like those SSRs anyway.
Of course, I was there for the cars. And if you're a car-lover, it's hard not to enjoy yourself at a nice place like this with the streets lined with sun-drenched collector cars. I'd say it was a great way to spend the day.
They also had a bunch of stuff they were selling raffle tickets to win, and proceeds from that went to Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
As usual, I'm not forcing you to simply rely on my description to get the feel for what this was like. There are also a few pictures of the cars that were there in the slideshow below.
