In 2012 I received a call from my friend and mentor Doug Reed asking if I’d like to be a part of a display at the 2013 Starbird-Devlin show in Wichita. He was assembling some cars to be a part of a Kustom City display showing off kustoms to the folks that attend the show. For decades Wichita had a rich heritage of kustoms and in recent years the kustoms weren’t exactly featured at the show.
So in 2013 and again in 2014 we gathered up a small group of kustoms to display together as the “Kustom City” display. Now it’s time to ask you to be a part of it too. For the 2015 Starbird Devlin show we want to increase the size of the display and show off traditional kustoms in a bigger way! If you have a traditional style kustom (for examples see this show coverage) we want you and your ride to come join us in Kustom City. The show’s official website is here, and the show goes down January 16-18, 2015. Here are some photos of the last couple of years displays. More info at the bottom of this post.
So… If you have a traditional kustom and want to help spread the word of the kustom faith, send me a message here. I firmly believe that if we spread the kustom word we can get more folks to build kool rides. Putting 20-30 kustoms on display at this show would mean a lot to myself and my friend and mentor Doug. We can’t offer you free admission (the show is to raise money for charity) but if we get a big enough group we can have a great time :).
See you at a show,
