The Sacramento Poor Boys car club was started in 1998. The Poorboys have been credited with the resurgence of homebuilt/low buck traditional hot rods and custom as a result of creating , producing and hosting the most notable car show in Northern California: Midnight Mass.
Midnight Mass is the premier West Coast garage built rod & custom car show and entertainment extravaganza. It is a gathering of the 1950’s lifestyle crowd. In its 13th year, the Midnight Mass show features homebuilt low buck pre 1965 American made automobiles built and driven by the average working guy & gal. Rust, patina, primer, flat colors or custom paint is all accepted. If its old school, it’s cool! Live bands, pinup contest and vendors galore with food, beer, hip clothes and assorted retro items adds to the very unique and unusual hot cars & cool people that makes Midnight Mass great entertainment. To beat the summer heat the show runs from midday to midnight, hence the name Midnight Mass. Almost 12,000 people and 600 cars attended last year’s Midnight Mass.
