2018 Greaserama Video

This year at the Greaserama outside of Kansas City I decided to shoot more video and barely any photos. Here’s the video from the event on Saturday, I didn’t get the drone up until late in the day so about half the cars had left but I had a good time hanging out with a bunch of friends.

2018 H.A.M.B. Drags Video

For the 2018 H.A.M.B. Drags I tried my hand at shooting some more video than still images. Here’s the video thrown together. This is kind of an experiment for me so if you like it let me know. I had a couple of clips doubled up so this is a new edit.


48 Cars In 48 States : The Great American Road Trip – An 18,200 mile 48 States road trip in a 1963 Ford. Along the way I covered 6 events and shot a feature article on 48 different cars and then compiled them all into a book! The first 200 copies of the book sold out in 3 weeks time, you  can order a copy of the 2nd edition of the book here!

2018 H.A.M.B Drags Photos

Click the photo to go to the gallery of this event.
For 8 years running I’ve been making the trek down to MoKan Dragway outside of Asbury, MO to attend the H.A.M.B. Drags and hang out with great friends. This year I was a little late to the party because on Friday night I got to see Reverend Horton Heat with Wayne “The Train” Hancock in Wichita. For those that don’t know, the H.A.M.B. stands for the Hokey Ass Message Board, which is a message board on the JalopyJournal.com the H.A.M.B. has been one of the go-to places to find all things traditional hot rod and custom for most of the life of the internet. It’s this website that has introduced me to most of the people that I know in the hot rod and kustom car world. Arriving a bit later than I wanted to I was still able to get there before the action started. For the first hour or two that I was on site I was running around shooting video, I’ll try to have that edited and loaded to the site tomorrow, but here are the photos.  More info below this quick ad for my book!

2018 Meltdown Drags Coverage

After having to skip the 2017 Meltdown Drags due to some troubles with getting the Galaxie ready for the 48States trip, I was stoked to get to head back to Byron, IL for the 2018 Melt Drags! I called up my buddy Corey Conyers from Crown Custom in Wichita to go along with me. A car that he recently built was set to debut at the event so it seemed perfect for him to come along to see the event for himself.

2018 Des Moines GoodGuys Coverage

This year for the 2018 Goodguys Heartland Nationals I decided to do things a little differently. I put together a little video of the event  and some photos. Let me know what you think about this change to how I do things. With 100’s of people shooting photos at events and posting them all over social media I see less and less need for the car show/hobby promotion that I started this website for. I’m looking for ways to keep what I do fun for me and also provide you with coverage of events.

2018 Custom Car Revival Coverage Part 1

Again this year I traveled over to Indianapolis, IN for the 2018 Custom Car Revival. My buddy Kevin puts the event on and it’s one that I never want to miss not just because some great cars show up but also because of the people. This is THE place to be to hang out with the keepers of the custom car faith.

After returning from Texas for work late on Monday evening I was able to pick up about 100 of the 48 Cars 48 States books on Tuesday and ship a handful on Wednesday before leaving for Indy. After 10 hours at the day job I put down about 6 hours to get me out to Hannibal, MO where I met up with Mick Bryan of Stray Kat Kustoms shows and Travis “TwoTallOkie” Miller.

Thursday we got rolling early headed on to Indianapolis and were able to roll in around 2pm finding the host hotel parking lot already filling up with great rides and old custom friends.

Above you see the Overholts throwing some rocks during the night drags on Friday night. We had a blast watching the cars run through 1st and 2nd gear and putting on a show for the night drags. Then we all gathered up and had some bench racing sessions all over the host hotel parking lot, there were coolers opened and beers drank and lots of stories told. It was a great day!

2018 Hot Rod Dirt Drags Part 1

This year I talked my dad into attending the 2018 Hot Rod Dirt Drags in Monte Vista, CO with me. We headed out from home mid morning Thursday with some stops to make along the way for work. After the work day was done we found ourselves 6 hours from Monte Vista, we pointed the F250 west and headed for the mountains.

Friday morning we went out to the Best Western Movie Manor to get our registration and start the weekend hanging out with friends. The Speedster wasn’t running quite right so we ended up finding a couple of Model A experts Larry and Rick who helped us get it going. A few hours went by and the car was running again. Dad and John Binger were selected along with 12 or so other sets of cars to do the Night Drags on Friday night. These are some 1st/2nd gear pulls to just put on a show with all of the rest of the cars parked along the track using their headlights to light the track.

Here are some photos from Friday, there will be more to come all week long!

2018 West Coast Kustoms Cruisin’ Nationals Part 1 by Derek Campbell

20180525; 181337

While I was doing the Flint Hills Rod & Custom Run and at the Gypsum Pie Festival and Car Show my buddy Derek Campbell and his lady Velma was out at Santa Maria, CA for the West Coast Kustoms Cruisin’ Nationals. He was kind enough to share a whole bunch of photos with me to share with all of you. Go follow him on Instagram here and her on Instagram here and make sure to say thanks for sending us these photos.

2018 Gypsum Pie Festival and Car Show

2018; Gypsum; Pie; Festival; And; Car; Show; 002; Pano

The 2018 Gypsum Pie Festival and Car Show was a blast! This year I was called upon to be the DJ and MC of the show so I didn’t take as many photos as I wished I could have. The temperature was flirting with 100 and although our town has a LOT of trees, none of them were in the right location to help provide shade for the show.

On Saturday I organized and lead the inaugural Flint Hills Rod And Custom Run where we started in Manhattan, KS and drove a beautiful scenic route through the Flint Hills and ended up in Gypsum. I hope to have a stop motion video of that run put together in a few days for you to get a glimpse of what it was like.

Sunday started early, with the show scheduled to open registration at 9 and the show start at 10, there were already 40 or so cars there by 7:30 am! We had a stack of pies, awesome food vendors, crafters, an amazing DJ named Royboy, and a town full of great car folks to hang out with. Door prizes were given away throughout the day as well as some sponsored awards where the award sponsors picked out the recipients and a bunch of awards that the Pie Festival committee members picked out.

A lot of folks went home sweaty and with a pie and as far as I can tell we all had a really good time. I hope to see you here in Gypsum next year!
