Greaserama 2008

Lily's Greasy Gallery open from 2 til dark Sat and Sun.

Valve cover racing- some time between 2 and 5- with test and tune on Sat and the Big Race Sunday.
Awards will be right before dusk on Sunday- either after the last band, or right before their encore. Fabulous, handmade Greaserama Awards by the Punk Rods- with bonus artistic contributions by (most likely) Kevin Broderick of Fabrications Unlimited, Boneheads C.C., Knucklebusters C.C., KC Kustoms, The Spokesmen bike club, The Eddies bike club, KC slammers (model).
All car clubs, etc. are welcome to bring & give away a pick award. Represent!

Between 1st and 2nd movies- the unofficial, impromtu muffler rapping and flame throwing contest. Someone may even make a trophy for this, too.

We will play all three movies both nights. We have reversed the order so if you always fall asleep at the drive-in, like I do, the one you missed will be playing earlier the next night. That way, if you go to an early rock n roll show somewhere Saturday Night, you can still catch the late showing of Repo Man!
