Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum
While we were reporting the 2015 Grand National Roadster Show the pre-show press conference was held at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. We had seen it once before, but we were so impressed with the new displays they’ve created here that we thought we’d show some of the museum displays to you here. If you have followed the history of street rodding you know that it was born in a racing heritage. Hot rodding in California was all about racing, seeing how fast you could go on the salt flats or dry lake beds. So the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum on the grounds of the Pomona Fairplex is a history book about early California hot rodding.
If you are in the Los Angeles area it is worth a trip to the Pomona Fairplex just to walk through the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum and see all the early cars that made drag racing history.
We were here at the Fairplex to see the the competition for the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award. If you have not yet read our report on the show and photo features here is a link to the 2015 Grand National Roadster Show.
