300+ Photos of Vintage American Iron from Viva Las Vegas

Going strong in its 18th year, Viva Las Vegas practically takes over the Orleans casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, with all sorts of vintage-theme events, a pin-up contest, live music, vintage clothing vendors, and what we show up for each year, a huge car show featuring pre-1963 customs, trucks, hot rods, and rat rods.

If you need to beat the heat, the ballrooms of the Orleans feature music, vintage clothing and accessory vendors, and hot rod memorabilia.

Outside the Orleans is where we spent most of our time, taking in the customs and the well-preserved original 1950s cars. It seemed that 3x2 intakes were the speed part of choice, as we spotted Chevy, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile engines under the hoods of hot rods sporting three deuces and more than one Nailhead with log manifolds and six deuces. Aside from engines, we found ourselves focusing on the cool details of the cars, like emblems and jet-age hood ornaments, you’ll find those on the second half of the gallery. Enjoy!
