Moscone Convention Center is well known in San Francisco as the city's main facility for conventions and conferences. Located downtown, South of Market near the Yerba Buena Gardens it's positioned for maximum exposure. However there is another facility in San Francisco, the Cow Palace. Not glamorous in any sense of the word, located in Visitation Valley one of the remaining working class neighborhoods in the city. The Cow Palace is where the Rodeo and Circus comes annually to the City, the space feels like an different era. I went there to see Hot Rods and Low Riders at the San Francisco Rod, Custom and Motorcycle Show

Ok, I don't own a car and my desire to have one is rather low. I'm the type of person who normally doesn't notice one model from another. But as a kid I liked Funny Cars, owned a Demolition Derby Electric Racing Set and always admired low riders and older model cars for their creative design and engineering. Few new cars catch my attention in a positive way but the oldies well that another story.

The show at the Cow Palace had a wide variety of cars, motocycles, trailers/campers and even bikes. My favorites were some of the older campers/trailers many for me were new views, the mini-campers with their super functionality with stoves, refrigerators, and tables were fun.

It was a fun afternoon and who knows everyone needs their toys.................

One of the many cool cars of the show

Custom bike, cool but maybe not the best choice for
