Uncle Joe Benson at the 2010 National Roadster Show - January 30, 2010.
January 30, 2010: What a day! There was Uncle Joe saying howdy to hundreds of fans at the 61st Annual Grand National Roadster Show — the longest running indoor car show in the world! Over 1,000 of America's most spectacular, beautiful, innovative and radical street rods, classic customs and motorcycles were on display in and around five giant halls in the campus-like setting of the Fairplex in Pomona. Rock & Roll!
