Jonnie King interviews Frank Livingston on his 49 Chevy!

“Hi everybody !   Hope everyone reading this is “storm free” and able to be Crusin’ once again !

The work that my friend Travis does on this Site is awesome…hope you come back often to check-it out

Here’s an important story that I want to share with you right now…

LONG-TIME HALL OF FAME MEMBER, Frank Livingston, wow’d the crowd’s over a decade ago when he unveiled his Pagan Gold, Oz Welch-built ’49 Chevy Fastback !

It was very similar to his 1955-built ’49 Fastback…but it was not quite a “clone” for a number of reasons that he explains, and you may have seen the car in-person at the GNRS, or, at Santa Maria.

Frank’s an old friend, and the story about how the idea for this build was put together is just super-cool….and what he say’s about the paint work alone is something you won’t want to miss !   Simply Click-On-Right-Here to Listen !!

Thanks again, for visiting here with Travis…and come back often !

Royboy Feature Videos

A couple of years ago I came up with the idea to do car features in video form. For some of you that have been following for awhile, you’ve seen these before. For the new folks take a few minutes and hopefully enjoy!

The concept is simple, get the car owner on camera telling the story of the ride. Unfortunately it is a time consuming process and time is what I don’t have much of. So…. there are 2 to date. I am planning on releasing a 3rd one next week (a year after I meant to release it). And hopefully more will follow. Feature videos are the perfect way to capture your memories of your favorite ride to remember for the rest of your life and pass on to future generations.

Video 1 If you can’t see the video click here.

Video 2 if you can’t see the video click here.

If you’d like to inquire about having a Feature Video created for your ride, use the contact form here to get a hold of me.

Jonnie King : Gene Winfield on Sectioning a Car

“Hi to all !   Hope you’re in the mood for the Holiday Season, and thanks for joining us here at my friend Travis’ Site !

What you’ll hear right now is one of the most informative pieces on Sectioning that you’ll ever find !

THE LEGENDARY GENE WINFIELD , has chopped many tops through the years, but the first car he ever sectioned was a ’56 Merc !

That iconic custom was christened the “Jade Idol”, and I wanted Gene to give me the lowdown on sectioning that car…and the full-story of what has to be done during that

This is a cool Interview, and you won’t want to miss Gene’s stories…not only about the Jade Idol, but about his own chopped & sectioned ’58 Impala !  To listen, Just-Click-On-Here !

Thanks again for joining us here…and be sure to check-out some of the GREAT Merch available: for you…or one of your friends !

Jonnie King remembers Norm Grabowski

“Hi to all !   One of the Hall Of Fame’s longest-running members, NORM GRABOWSKI, passed away just a year ago…October 12, 2012, so, in honor of Norm, I pulled out one of his earliest stories from my Archives.

Norm was known as the “Father of the T-Bucket” and he was a friend to all he met, I always called him the “Don Rickles” of the R&C Industry because he had a GREAT sense of humour !
TRULY ONE OF THE FUNNIEST GUYS in the Rod & Custom Industry was the one-and-only NORM GRABOWSKI !

This time, Norm talks about how he got into cars to begin with, and gave me the scoop on the early beginnings of, what would become, the Legendary “Kookie Car”!

(Good Question: Where did the ’52 Cadillac engine in Norm’s T-Bucket come from ?  Listen closely and you’ll find out !)
