2013 started like they all do here, with the Starbird-Devlin show in Wichita.
Then a trip to shoot a feature which allowed me to hit 2 shops while I was out. I stopped by Ryno Built and Fast A.L.’s Upholstery.
Then it was of to Kansas City for the World of Wheels.
After that was a trip to Tulsa for the Starbird Rod & Custom show.
Then it was back to the Wichita area (Park City) for The Chill
Then it was off to the Texas Thaw in Denton TX which allowed me to stop at 3 of my friends shops along the way, Chaotic Customs, Premier Body & Paint and Atlas Speed & Custom.
Then it was back to Texas for the Goodguys Spring Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, TX.
So as far as I can recollect, that is what I’ve been up to in the last 3 months.
See you at a show,
The 3rd and final shop visit of my trip to the Texas Thaw (part 1, part 2, part 3) was at Atlas Speed and Custom in Denison, TX (see the last visit here). Another shop owned by friends of mine and another shop full of kool stuff happening.

Daddy-o’s 41 Chevy waiting to head to it’s new home, more on that later…
My buddy Jeff’s Coupe, mid-chop, this car should be at the Lonestar Roundup and maybe the Stray Kat 500.
Here you see the new frame for the coupe.
Last time I was down to Atlas Daddy-o was working on this amazing roadster.
Daddy-o’s Sedan has recently gotten a heart transplant with a bit more umph. Just shady pics for now, more to come after the next couple of visits to the shop.
Love the old signs that Atlas has all over the place. The “Quonset Hut of Speed” as Ryan from the H.A.M.B. called the shop.
That’s it for this visit, hope you enjoyed the 3 shop tours, I intend to do more with these 3 shops specifically but also a couple of others that I know.
See you at a show,
