The Hell City Saints Car Club (Phoenix) DO IT AGAIN!!!!

The much aniticipated 'Blessing 2 show delivered in every aspect of any good hot rod party/show. CARS...as you will see there were plenty of bad-ass rides; BEER & FOOD...PBR tallboys on the cheap and I heard the burritos were killer; MUSIC...Good DJs and great bands played continuously all day and night; A KOOL CROWD...the atmosphere was one of camaraderie; I counted at least six clubs present. It was a like-minded crowd celebrating their scene and people new to it certainly walked away with an appreciation of the Valley's car kulture.
I arrived just around the start time. I wanted photograph the cars before light faded...get it done...and get to the business of drinking and hanging out with friends.

There was a pin-up pageant, car awards and of the course the Blessing of the Rods --- unfortunately I couldn't be at all places at once...but every where I went I found friends, made new ones and had a great time.
Thanks 'Saints for a killer show!
