Uncle Joe Benson at the 2011 National Roadster Show - January 29, 2011.

January 29, 2011 Time for an Uncle Joe Meet & Greet with the KLOS Cool Patrol at one of the biggest, most important hot rod shows in the world. It's the 62nd 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 will be on display in and around five giant halls in the campus-like setting of the Fairplex in Pomona. Rock & Roll!
