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 !

Jonnie King Interviews Geno and Alan from Koolhouse Publishing

Hi again to everyone here checking-out my friend Travis’ Website ! I’ve got a real treat for you this time around…

For the first time GENO DIPOL, Publisher of Ol’ Skool Rodz & Car Kulture DeLuxe, AND, ALAN MAYES, Managing Editor of both those titles, talk about how these two extremely influential rod & custom magazines were created…and how they got together to get the job done !


We got together at Darryl Starbird’s 48th Annual Rod & Custom Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, turned on the recorder,  and, as the story unfolded, I was amazed at how these two not only “found” each other, but how similar their visions were to achieve the same end result.

Each with a long-time background in their love of rods & customs, and a crew that helps keep everything running smoothly, means that both Ol’ Skool Rodz & Car Kulture DeLuxe will continue to entertain readers for years to come!

Jonnie King And Gene Winfield Discuss Pacifica

While not an artist per se, Jonnie King is the focus of today’s post. If you’ve never been to his site, “Legends Of The Rod & Custom Hall of Fame” then you’re missing out! Jonnie interviews many of the koolest kustom folks and posts the interviews on the site. A few years ago we crossed paths and I’m not sure how we even met but I’m glad that we did! If you don’t know who Jonnie is, here is his site.

One of the newest updates on the site is an interview with Gene Winfield talking about his 2013 777 Award winning clone of his famous Pacifica Econoline Ford Pickup. The original build was done in 1962, and the clone is visually just about the same as the original, but underneath the truck is much more modern. Click here to open that page, the audio will begin automatically.

I’m hoping to talk Jonnie into doing a blog post here for you whenever he has new audio articles up, at the very least, I will do a post like this one and give you links to the good stuff!

See you at a show,
