DEDICATED TO WILD BILL
The Riverside Nationals Car Show is sporting a new name for 2017, we are now branding it "Wild Bill's Riverside Nationals Car Show," in memory of legendary pinstripe artist and local, Wild Bill Wisslead. He was known for his keen attention to detail when striping a car and his fine letter skills that were mimicked by many.
Wild Bill passed last January, and was a legend among the custom car and pinstriping community. A Riverside resident, Wild Bill garnered 40 years painting in Southern California, was a featured artist in numerous magazine publications, TLC’s Overhaulin’ and a variety of car shows including Crusin’ Nationals, Grand National Roadster Show, LA Roadster Car Show, Viva Las Vegas, and West Coast Kustoms Santa Maria Show.
We lost not only a legend but a true craftsman, friend and mentor, whose legacy lives on in his work, family and friends.
The Car Show will take place at Rubidoux High School, 4250 Opal Street, Jurupa Valley, Calif. 92509. The show staging area is located at the student parking lot adjacent to the football field at the rear of the high school near Pacific Avenue and 42nd Street. Please note, spectators and registrants may not enter at the main front gates of the school on Opal Street.
What about Riverside? The show is in Jurupa Valley but it says Riverside Nationals?
The car show and Rubidoux High School are located within the city of Jurupa Valley. Prior to July 2011, Rubidoux High School was located within unincorporated Riverside, and in the community of Rubidoux. Many locals and alumni still refer to the area as Riverside or Rubidoux, hence the reason behind the car show name. According to the United States Postal Office it is Jurupa Valley, however, we still call it Riverside.
