Viva East is a Car Show held yearly in the Northeast. It features pre-70s hot rods, custom cars, lowriders, and everything in between. Brands like Lincoln, Buick, Chevy and Ford dominate the landscape and it's colorful to say the least.
What makes this kind of car show different is its ability to look the part. One does not just purchase a car and customize it. There's a fashion, a style of music, and that resonates to a family atmosphere that few automotive events can compete with and allows it to surpass its basic tenants and builds a stronger community across many car clubs from everywhere.
We'd like to see more of this come to more and more shows, regardless of their differing styles because if there's one thing that Viva East does well it's set a very high bar for all those that wish to follow it.
