August 13th, 2016 the Vancouver Island chapter of the ROADMEN Car Club hosted their first annual ‘Grease, Gears and Grooves’. The Event, included a Show n’ Shine, Pin-Up Pageant, Live Music, Vendors and a Beer Garden.
The event was held at the Cowichan Exhibition grounds, which was a great location as there was ample space for settling in for the day then camping at night.
I decided to wear my new Red Collectif Dolores Top and Teal Rock Steady Pin-up Thrills Skirt that I had purchased from Hussy Boutique, at the last moment I remembered to grab my umbrella as our local temps were hot and I knew portable shade would be my friend.
We arrived late afternoon to the event just in time for the Pin- Up Pageant to start. All the contestants were gorgeous and did so well Dolled up as it was a VERY hot day..! Even Miss.Winny Wonderland was in attendance.. xx
I appreciated seeing other car clubs participating in the event, as they would have their rides parked together and all were parked with continuity that gave your eye a chance to always land on something favorable.
I have always been amused by the details..
We soon found ourselves hanging out close to the Vendors as they were set up in a great bank of shade.
It is great to see that the community grows and sustains its members by continuous support.

We met some businesses that offered quality service and merchandise for sale.
We had a great time connecting with our friend, Neil Grocholski @Dirty Monkey Kustoms

The best part of the day for me was the live music, great talent and tunes were played by, The Hell Katz, Slim Sandy and Hank Angel.
I am excited to see how the show grows for next year and to return to meet up with familiar faces.
Thanks H. for all the great Captures of the day..
