Attending this years Race of Gentlemen was the closest thing I have been to a 1940s dry lakes event! Mel, Bobby and the rest of the Oilers guys does an exceptional job hosting the best hot rod race on the face of the earth! Walking around on the beach in Wildwood with my camera is the closest thing I have ever been to a religious feeling. Looking back at the photos I took that weekend, I can almost fool myself into believing that this is old photos scanned from crisp negatives! Something is missing in the photos though! Where are all the mild, wild, chopped or/and channeled custom cars you usually see parked in between and behind the race cars in those scratched old photos? In 2014 we had them parked up the street by the Wildwood sign, next year we have decided to bring Customs by the Sea down to the beach, next to the race! The rules have also changed, and for the 2015 show only pre 1952 styled custom cars are allowed to attend! With this, I would like to welcome all early custom car enthusiasts to wonderful Wildwood and the 2nd annual Customs by the Sea! More info to follow soon!
