    Despite cold weather and reports that the show has become a bit small I headed south Thursday night headed for Denison, TX for the 2012 KKOA Hotrodding Hullabaloo, Denison is also home to Atlas Speed & Custom so what better excuse to go to TX for the weekend?

    Friday started with a shop visit to my buddies Atlas Speed & Custom in downtown Denison for a looksee around the shop and to check in on the Revolution 32 build.

    Mike's new toy, it's a vintage build right hand drive from England I believe. Super kool car, especially the front license plate...

    Atlas' logo was done by Jeff Norwell, and it's cool factor is off the scale.

    Lots of cool old Hot Rod mags and others for sale in the store area.

    Daddy-o was working hard but still took 30 minutes to show me around town and tell me some history.

    The Atlas boys are also the members of the band Pushrod who will be performing at the Hot Rod Revolution this weekend in Austin. Mike's dad was a member of the Leonard Stockers.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the truck progress throughout its build. The 51 passenger car dash is a nice touch.

    Okay, part 2, on to the show coverage. There are plenty more shots of Atlas if you click any of the photos in the first post.

    Like the KKOA Leadsled Spectacular held in Salina, KS the Hotrodding Hullabaloo features Friday Run What Ya Brung Drags. Being that the show has a smaller attendance the drags were a bit let crowded.

    That's the 20 photo limit we are allowed in this post, now I'm off to buy some groceries and write some magazine articles. I will take a break to come back and post some more after some of the To Do List is knocked out.

    See you at a show,

    Will do next time I see him.

    I've only ever been able to post 20 images including smilies per post. It makes a nice digestible sized post I guess.

    That's it for this post, back to writing again! I think that this show could grow back to a really great celebration of Kustoms in the years to come. I really like the town, the people, the venue, I think we should all strive to get to this one next year and just over run the park with kool kustoms.

    See you at a show,

    Travis
