The event is held every Labor Day weekend. The party can be re-lived anytime you want, on DVD.
BOULEVARD (Lead East 2004) Take a cruise down Memory Boulevard and enjoy
all the beautiful rides. Listen to the tunes that have melodies and
heart. Enjoy this video time capsule that brings us back to the uniquely
exciting life of the Fifties. This is when cars were lovingly customized
to reflect the owners' personality. Cars were far more than a means
of transportation--they were, in fact, at the heart of so many lives.
Lead East, the World's Biggest 50's Party, returns us to this era's
full party mode. And Memory Boulevard faithfully captures the celebration
and spirit of Lead East and the Fifties. Cruise with us.
Fabulous 50's" is the official event video of the 2003 Lead East,
"The World's Biggest 50's Party" video. This production is one
hour and forty-five minutes of music-driven fun. There's plenty of cruising,
night and day, showcasing some outstanding custom cars. There's no shortage
of the chopped, nosed, decked, flamed and bagged. There are greaser and
bobby soxer contests, sock hop and prom dances, poodle skirts and ponytails,
DA's and DJ's, muffler rap and (believe it) dress-up-your-pet-in-50's-style
contests. You want live doo-wop, blues, Razorbacks
rockabilly? You got it. You want fun? It's here.
Whether you're watching a 9:00 A.M. interview of a proud car owner or a 2:00 A.M. party scene where there's dancing in the parking lot, you'll enjoy this production. It's the next best thing to being at Lead East. (1:45 ) Click here for more details.
EAST XX (Lead East 2002) Celebrating Lead East's 20th anniversary, producer
Terry Cook arranged
for twenty of the hottest customs in the history of Lead East to be at
the party. Daytime
rains didn't dampen spirits, but it shifted some emphasis to indoor activities
and a larger
number of interviews. The night activity, always vibrant at Lead East,
was mostly rain-free
and very energized. Special guest John Zacherley ("Dinner with Drac")
was a huge hit. (2:00)

|LE 2000 (Lead East 2000) Little Leopold appropriately opens the video singing "Bring It On." Lead East brings on the cars, the music, the fun—non-stop. Paul LaMat of American Graffiti is a popular guest. The Golden Gup, deejay extra ordinaire, introduces his new trio. And a brief shower doesn't stop the Merc/Shoebox Ford parade or slow DJ "Wolfman" Jerry Burst's humorous commentary. A good video. (1:30)|

|REMEMBER WHEN (Lead East 1999) Guest car builder Boyd Coddington and Little Isidore & The Inquisitors are among the featured personalities in this Lead East presentation. Actually, this title is two videos in one. The Lead East event video (about 1 hour) is first, followed by a 22- minute tribute to the late Joe "The Fonz" Carloni, a Lead East legend. (1:22)|
