Each year, the

Lost Angels Children's Project

fullly restores and customizes a 

CLASSIC CAR

to be given away at the
Ventura Nationals

Hot Rods, Kustoms, & Motorcycle Show,

raising money to benefit

at-risk youth.

 

     Each year, Founder, Aaron Valencia with his dedicated team and the youth of Lost Angels Children's Project restore a classic car.  Working tirelessly for months to give new life to an old vehicle, they spend countless hours sourcing parts, building the body, and adding distinctive details, creating a one-of-a-kind automotive masterpiece. 

 

THE

BUILDS

Ventura Nationals

Custom Car & Motorcycle Show

takes place Labor Day

weekend each year.

 

     While the car is being built, Aaron, along with volunteers all across Southern California, sell a promotional poster which comes with a ticket that automatically enters you into the drawing for a chance to win our newest custom classic car.
