You went with a great group of fellas!

How come when Lee drove his shoebox from LA to Austin nothing went wrong?

I think you're bad luck Ryan

The Leadsled Spectacular is a show I need to go to!

I am really digging that 64 Olds! Those aren't common at shows.

Great story and cast of characters... hope to make this show sometime. I just need to find myself a "gaggle of car guys" to cruise with like you got yourself.

I'm guessing that the really sweet lavender colored starliner is McPhail's. I have been waiting to see more of it. Thanks for the expanded/multi view shots.

If I wasnt on the quiet and shy side Myself, I would probably say something stupid, however, I have found that everyone appreciates a kind word, and you have plenty.
Thanks Ryan.

Thanks goes out to Jerry & Devona and all of their officials for putting on a
"Spectacular" show. A few years went by when attendance was down and I
never could understand the reason why. Kustom Kemps of America is
all about the Real Kustom and Hot Rod enthusiasts. What other out door
event in the country could you get the chance to hangout with so many
legends. One of the guys that I meet this weekend and not talked about very
much, is “King George” I was told he is one of the original pinstripers. West
coast had Von Dutch we had King George. I'm not familar with his stuff but trying
to fins some examples.

Being able to shake hands and autgraphs is one of the Kool things but being able
to talk to the legends is priceless. Had the chance to talk to Frank & Cathy Livingston
and actually had time to get to know each other. Hopefully he wasnt saying, Crap here
comes that guy again. LOL!! Very Kool to be able to make relationships with the kustom
guys that helped build our hobby.

I’m looking forward to the future in Salina. Thanks KKOA for the great time.

Happy Trails,

Mick

Great story Ryan, The comments by those who were there help add to the story too. I have a couple of friends who make that trip quite often and hope to tag along when I get the truck done.

Dang I missed out on Brookville chicken?!? The handful of us from Gypsum ate at one of the chain places that we eat at all to often...boooooo.

I hope everyone who came to town had a chance to stink up their clothes and cars with a bag of Cozy Inn sliders too

Man, oh, man.....

Anytime I see a '57 Ford done "RIGHT" it flat out nails me to the wall.

A simple drop.
Mild shave and a Cal Custom style grille.

Who could ask for more.
