We took a trip out to Modesto, California, to check out the Inking In The Valley Tattoo Convention. This was the third annual show and you could see that the attendances from previous conventions have steadily risen. The event was held at the Modesto Center Plaza. The main entrance featured two rides from the Impalas Car Club Stockton chapters.

The indoor hall area held an exhibit from our Lowrider Arte cover tattoo/artist OG Spider who made his way from Orange County. There was also room for a few NorCal top lowriders show cars, such as Doug Vigil's '64, Randy Perez '36 Auburn, and Trino Alfaro's '58. The outdoor show area also had several car clubs represented, including Impalas, Life's Finest, and New Style. The exhibit attracted thousands of spectators over the two-day period.
