2014 Custom Car Revival Part 3

Part 3 of 4

Part 1 | Part 2 Part 3 | Part 4

Scott Pavey’s “Candy Cane” is immaculate. I first saw this car in a video that Doug Reed shot at the 1983 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular when Scott was 16 and had just finished it’s first version. It was awesome to see the car still in his hands and still looking awesome.

Sooooooo kool.

 Gary Minor and his wife drove from the San Fransisco area to Indy to be a part of this show.

 I first noticed this car at the Stray Kat 500 this year and a week later at the Pete & Jake’s Open House. Good to see it here in Indy.

 Voodoo Larry was in attendance

 The Toad looking good all the way from Wichita.

 Dave Pareso and his wife Chris brought their Merc to the show with it’s new exterior color, the interior will get transformed to match soon.

 “String of Pearls”

 Pure gorgeousness

 This ride was for sale for $15k and seemed a steal at that price.

 Ross came 850 miles down I-70 with his chopped, channelled and sectioned Merc.

 I came back to get this car without the shadow, but the car had left, good thing I got this one.

 Soooo kool.

2014 Custom Car Revival Coverage Part 2

The parking lot of the host hotel was full of kustom kool.

Part 2 of 4

Part 1 | Part 2 Part 3 | Part 4

Friday morning we headed over to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a tour. The Museum was $5 to get in and was amazing.

From the parking lot of the Museum on to the inside there were awesome rides everywhere.

 

He wasn’t really too happy about posing for photos.

However, Jack relished the opportunity.

This was our ride for our grounds tour.

Pretty sweet doors!

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway isn’t actually in Indy, it’s in the city of Speedway.

The most famous 36″ of bricks in the world.

Not much of an exciting race judging by Dan Greenberg’s lack of caring about the race. 🙂

How much fun would it be to run 230 down the front stretch?

There was a bit of action at the track with some Ferraris and Lambos taking laps on a short road course.

2014 Custom Car Revival: 1400 Miles, 4 Days, 200 Cars, & 1 Great Time!

Part 1 of 4

Part 1 | Part 2 Part 3 | Part 4

When I first heard of the Custom Car Revival in Indianapolis last year I knew I wanted to go. However, the dates last year didn’t work out and I missed the inaugural event. After returning from this year’s event, I don’t think that I’ll make that same mistake again.

 Leaving home on Wednesday Evening
Leaving home on Wednesday Evening

Wednesday evening my girlfriend, her son and I loaded up in my 63 ½ Galaxie and headed out on our trip to Indy. Planning to only put a few hours in before meeting up with some friends from Colorado we headed east. Lucky for us my father was headed west on I-70 at that same time and invited us to have some BBQ with him. After that delicious detour we made our way up to St. Joseph, MO for our hotel. A drunk driver nearly ran us off the road, put himself in the ditch and then passed us on the shoulder, we called 911 and turned his plates and car description and peeled off that highway for our hotel.

Thursday morning we met up with Roger and Dan Jetter and Dave and Chris Pareso from ColoRODo and we headed east on highway 36 towards Indy. Highway 36 is known as the shortest route from Denver to Indy according to a sign in Norton, KS along the route. They had followed the highway from Denver to St. Joe before we joined the caravan.

The drive was a long one but fun. I’d been down much of that stretch before so nothing new for me to see, but my passengers had not so there was some excitement in showing a 6 year old the Mississippi River and other sites of interest.

Finally later in the day we arrived in Indianapolis at the host hotel. Some traffic had slowed us down and I had to turn the heater on full tilt boogie to keep the car from overheating but we made it. The cars in the parking lot for Thursday night alone were breathtaking.

Road tripping to Texas for Pistons And Paint

For years I’d had to shamefully admit that no I hadn’t been to Pistons & Paint in Denton, TX every time I’d been asked. This year I change that. So for the 46th Royboy gallery in the 2013 folder I headed down to Texas for the PnP.

Friday Nov. 8th 5:30 am  Ugh, 5:30 in the AM… as in morning. Yuck. Already a half an hour behind my meaningless and self imposed schedule. But the bed was so comfy… just 10 more minutes of sleep… No. I have to get up, I have to get on the road. It’s time to kick this mule.

6:10 am  I’m in the daily driver and headed south. The GPS is on, not so much because I need it but the app I use does allow other folks to warn you of potential speed traps. I might as well use it if it helps. There is just the faintest of hints of the impending sunrise on the horizon to my left as I blast south on what can be deer infested two lane country blacktops.

 Heading out at 5:45 for Pistons And Paint
Heading out at 5:45 for Pistons And Paint

 

7:15 am Okay so now I’m 15 minutes behind schedule, must have made up some time on those back roads. Now it’s time for breakfast with the Wichita guys. A group of car guys that I know gathers for breakfast at the same diner 6 days a week. It’s always a good time to join them, so I do just that. The guys liked the calendars that I showed them and they bought a bunch, even some strangers across the joint buy a couple.

8:30am Back on the road headed south to Nostalgia Sid’s in Guthrie, OK for a shop visit. Sid shows me around, I take some photos, learn more about that in an upcoming article right here.

11:40 am Nostalgia Sid’s Shop visit is over and now I’m off to Shoebox Central for a visit. More pics and a story again, coming soon!

 

1:00pm Heading south again this time headed for Atlas Speed & Custom in Denison, TX

4:00pm Hanging out with some old friends who have gathered at Atlas. More pics and a story from there soon as well.

We ended up gathering up a bunch of folks at a fried chicken place called Babe’s in the evening for dinner, it was pretty awesome.

More from the show tomorrow, see you at a show,

Royboy
