Favorite Classics of Viva Las Vegas 15

I Can Never Get Enough!

Ok- so maybe my life will never be an Elvis musical and maybe I will never go back in time and experience the 50’s like I dreamed of doing when I was a kid- but I will continue to day dream and experience as much of those “Happy Days” as I can through car shows and Rockabilly events like Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend.  I love the feeling of being surrounded by colored victory rolls and Betty Page bangs, greasers and pompadors, tattoos and pinstriping, bandanas and parasols, swing dresses and petticoats, Rockabilly music, and of coarse– the classic cars!  There is something so emotionally seductive about the classic cars- the curves, the sharp edges of tail fins, the shape of the lights, the big shinny grilles, the moldings, the emblems, the white wall tires, the bigger engines, the huge trunks, and the beautiful large steering wheels….  There is something so magnetic and wonderful about classic cars, maybe because they bring up feelings of more simple and happy times, or because they represent an iconic and exciting era? Regardless of the reasons for the exciting effect they have- I can never get enough of the classic cars these big events bring! Here are some of the many great classics from this year’s Viva Las Vegas, Rockabilly Weekend:

About Rockabelle Bombshell

I am a single mom of a 13 yr old boy and 6 yr old girl. I love DIY projects of all types, and everything Rockabilly! I love the Icons of the 50's, as well as classic cars, pinups, retro appliances and decor, and victorian gothic furniture. I think of myself as a tattooed 1950's transplant... definitely born in the wrong era! I love thrifting and "junking"- I rarely see junk, I see things for their possibilities! I started this blog to document my DIY adventures as I attempt to upcycle and recreate my furniture and home decor, add a Rockabilly touch to as much clothing as I can, make life fun for my kids, and share my love of Rockabilly!

  1. The variety at car shows is just mesmerizing, isn’t it? I’ve never been to Viva Las Vegas, but those photos look great!

    • It is the most boring drive ever from here, but SO worth it, if there is any way you can come next year you should, some people come a long way- ReeRee Rockette (of Rockalily lipsticks) came from London!!

  2. i really love to watch car shows because of the nice ladies.*
