The Invasion Car Show is an event that happens every Labor Day Weekend in Deep Ellum, Dallas, Texas hosted by the THEM! TX Car Club. For the last few years, the show has been held on Elm Street from 10:00 AM and ends around 6:00 PM. If its to hot, the cars and crowds start thinning out around 4:00 PM. Later in the evening, Trees and several other clubs will through after parties with live Rockabilly bands through out the night.
The Invasion Car Show is a pre 1964 traditional rods and kustoms event. The show features bad ass kustoms, rats and other hot rods. In additional to the rides, there is great food from the local bars/restaurants/food trucks, live rockabilly bands, and more.
Images From Invasion Car Show
I have made it to show three years in a row and missed the 2015 show because I was sick. But I have plans to make the 2016 show.
To See more images from the car show, check out my Flickr Set. You can find images from from two years ago, last year, this year, and future shows.
Below are just the first few images that I have had time to process. The images were shot by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8. Although it was bright, it was after 4pm and the sun was casting crazy shadows on my subjects. Next year, maybe I will take a slave flash with me to bounce some extra light on the subject to remove some of those shadows.
