From NC, I headed to see some friends in Ninety Six, SC! Chris and Lori Ryan of Ryan’s Rod & Kustom have been coming to the KKOA Leadsled Spectacular in Salina, KS for years and they always bring a beautiful car with them. The 1949 Cadillac that you see here is Lori’s “Golden Empress” that was first seen at the Detroit Autorama a couple of years back. The car is of course, stunning and the location was right in front of the shop so it worked out to be a great afternoon. With rain in the forecast we had to work fast to get done mere minutes before some mist started falling from the sky.

48 Cars In 48 States : The Great American Road Trip – A 48 state road trip with a stop in each state to photograph a traditionally styled hot rod, kustom or drag vehicle. Daily updates will be posted here on royboyproductions.com so you can see where I’ve gone, who I’ve met, some of what I’ve seen. At the end of the trip I’ll produce a 200 page full color book of the entire adventure. You can pre-order the book here!

Labor Day Weekend in KC is all about the Greaserama. Held out at the fairgrounds in Tracy, MO, it’s a great time with amazing cars, bands, artists, and people.

One of my favorite shows in the last few years has been Pistons And Paint in Denton, TX each November. Put it on your list!
