Chrome Pipes And Pinstripes Ep. 52: “Hot Rod Hundred”

This week Royboy serves up a double dose of interviews. First Ken McClure of the Torques C.C. comes on the show to talk about the Texas Thaw vintage drag races & car show. Then Bret Chrismer comes on to talk about the Southwest Missouri Hot Rod Hundred.

Corey Conyers of Crown Custom is the man responsible for the build of this beautiful dragster. He is too busy fabricating kool stuff to have time to build a website so instead if you click on the photo it will take you to the Shop Visit I did at his place. His contact info is on that page. ANYTHING you need fabbed or metal shaped, this man can do. Click the image above to get his contact info!

2014 Hot Rod Holiday Pt. 1

Spritz by Fritz’s Roswell Rod

A few months ago I was contacted by the promoter of the Hot Rod Holiday in Springfield, MO. He enticed me to come down and hang out for the weekend in Springfield for the show. I don’t like vending at shows most of the time because I don’t get to hang out and shoot the event because I’m sitting in my booth the whole time, but indoor shows offer me the ability to shoot the cars when nobody’s in the building and then spend the weekend in the booth. Since I have calendars to sell so that I can raise money for a great cause, this sounds like a great idea!

Ryno Built Shop Visit 2-3-13

So, on Monday of this week I told you about my weekend, traveling to the Joplin area to shoot Ryno’s 61 Ford pickup, and then off to Aaron’s Fast AL’s Upholstery on the way home for a bit of a visit. Yesterday I shared some photos of the visit to Fast AL’s, here are some of the time spent at Ryno Built.

At first I wasn’t sure if Ryno had some secrets he wasn’t telling but no this is just the lace used to get all of the kool lacework in the paint job of the truck…
Some of the lace used to create the awesome paint on Ryno's 61 Ford Unibody Pickup. Feature coming soon!

Some TrueSpoke Supremes on a 1931 Studebaker President Sedan, info on the build can be found here.

With the frame nearing completion, the Stude body has been placed so the floor supports can be build and some other items fabbed.

Looks to be the beginnings of a healthy ride.

Floor supports in place.

A 4 door Stude is not your normal idea of a hot rod, but this is not your normal hot rod shop.

Next time I’ll get a bunch more photos of the wagon that is being built for Mrs. Ryno. For now for info on the 60 Chevrolet Kingswood Wagon that Ryno is building for his wife, click here.

For more info on Ryno Built you can contact him on Facebook. Hire him to build you something safe, kool and fast. For the last visit to Ryno Built click here.

See you at a show,
