EARLY MORNING, LATE NIGHTS & the Occasional NAP… from The Daily Driver Project

Last weekend (Friday & Saturday) I spent up in Ventura at the Ventura Nationals. One of my favorite shows every year.

It consistently delivers on the fun factor with friends, community and a whole lot of cool hot rods.

But Friday I had a lazy morning around town before heading up to Ventura for the night’s festivities. There isn’t just one thing happening, but 3 things…

The Ventura Nationals Art Show that exhibits some of the coolest artists from around SoCal which includes painters as well as photographers. Then, there’s a great little car show on the street outside the theater that houses the art show. But you also can’t forget the fantastic cruise that is going on right at the end of the street next to the theater.

Now with all this fun, I usually stay up late because there are some really cool photos you can get at night along the cruise route on Main.

What ends up being a late night on Friday turns into a very early morning on Saturday as I like to get the roll-in of all the wonderful hot rods that have come to the show. There is just something cool about the sun rising on all these hot rods.

Now it was a late night, then an early morning which then turns into a long but amazing day hangin’ with friends looking at hot rods and just having a blast.

For me, this is where the show ends. So I headed home, but there was a 3rd day also. A reliability run around the Ventura area.

Now after a lack of sleep, you always have to recharge and that’s where the nap comes in. You have to take care of your body and mind and many times a simple nap can give you the fuel you need to get to editing all the cool photos and videos from the show.

So the bottom line is… You have to be willing to get up early and stay up late and sometimes go without sleep to get those shots you are looking for.

Sounds like fun, Wes…


2017 VENTURA NATIONALS CUSTOM CAR SHOW! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 671 – Fireball and Wes (The Daily Driver Project) head to Ventura for the 2017 Ventura Nationals Custom Car Show. Hot Rods, Classics, Bombs, Sleds, Lowriders and more!

From WIKI… Ventura, officially the City of San Buenaventura, is the county seat of Ventura County, California, United States.

European explorers encountered a Chumash village, referred to as Shisholop, in Ventura while traveling along the Pacific coast.

The eponymous Mission San Buenaventura was founded nearby in 1782 where it benefited from the water of the Ventura River.

The town grew around the mission compound and incorporated in 1866.

The development of nearby oil fields in the 1920s and the age of automobile travel created a major real estate boom during which many designated landmark buildings were constructed.

The mission and these buildings are at the center of a downtown that has become a cultural, retail, and residential district and visitor destination.

Ventura lies along U.S. Route 101 between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, which was one of the original U.S. Routes.

The highway is now known as the Ventura Freeway, but the original route through the town along Main Street has been designated El Camino Real, the historic pathway connecting the California missions.

During the post–World War II economic expansion, the community grew easterly, building detached single family homes over the rich agricultural land created by the Santa Clara River.

The population was 106,433 at the 2010 census, up from 100,916 at the 2000 census. Ventura is part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

VENTURA NATIONALS is this Saturday!

Fireball will be Vlogging from THE VENTURA NATIONALS this Saturday! SOme of the best cars on the planet, so BE THERE!
