The Los Banos Car Show sort of appeared out of no
where. When I found out about it, it was pretty much to late to even
list the show on the Central Valley Listing section. The show was a
good one, I have a hunch they would do a lot better though if they
would move the show date a week earlier or a couple weeks later. The
group I was with said that in the past there were quite a few more
participants. Hot August Nights in Reno started the same day, so I
imagine that a lot of the rodders who would normally attend were
most likely up in in Reno. The day started off with really nice
weather for a car show, but it changed quickly to down right cold,
not your typical central Valley warm evening. It was jacket time by
the time the awards were presented. We had dinner at a great
restaurant called the Wool Growers right there in downtown Los Banos.
If you get a chance, be sure you try it out. It serves French-Basque
cuisine one course at time, 5 courses in all I think and you sure
won't go away hungry. Has to be one of the best dinners I have had
in many years.
Online here, you will find almost 90 photos in the 2002 Los Banos
Car Show photo set, hope you enjoy them.
