Default Viva Las Vegas Review.

Attended the whole deal and heres my honest review: It's true you should definitely attend this event at least once. There's so much to do you seldom get a chance for boredom, just tired. The car show was BIG and varied making it very interesting and the attire and pin-up gals endless, AWESOME! I did expect more top Rockabilly earlier than scheduled for the older guys and gals. Dick Dale was completely worth the 4 day admission.WOW! Unfortunately can't say the same for the legend 'Little Richard'. They wheeled him onstage in a wheel chair and his voice was weak and sometimes off key. We left early, time marches on. Great event tho, no doubt!

Default Viva review

I was at Viva for the 13th and then again last year with my wife we enjoyed the car show and the many vendors. The bands were good and got lots of pictures. Hopefully will attend for 2014. Mike

Default It sucked

I went a few years ago and wasn't impressed. Girls were beautiful and music was great. But as for the cars ; well I could of had a better time at a local car show. To me it was just a big costume party...

I'm going this year and hope it's good! We just bought the ticket for the car show and whatever, not for the inside stuff. Anyone else going this year?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

We are going this year.
Went down last year, but only made it to the Rat City Rukkus show. This year we are going to try and do both.

The Rukkus show is Saturday only, across the street from the Stratosphere. Not a huge show, but fun with a bunch of great rats.
