  • 2014 Lonestar Roundup Coverage

    What was once described to me as the “Best Little Show in Texas” has grown into one of the largest traditional hot rod and kustom car shows in the country. 2014 makes the 13th Annual Lonestar Roundup in Austin, TX. For the 4th time I made the 1300 mile round trip from my home in central Kansas straight down I-35 to the Roundup, for the 2nd time I took my own ride. The show has grown considerably since my first trip, it’s quickly finding the limits of the Travis County Expo Grounds.  Click Here To Read Full Post...

  • SEMA 2012- Eastwood Company Part 2 Coverage

    Every year I'm still amazed at how many hidden "gems" there are in the show. You could walk rows and rows of products, models and through thousands of people, and suddenly you turn a corner and there is a beautiful car tucked in a booth. It's almost like a treasure hunt for us. We try to cover a lot of the show floor and find some of these hidden gems for YOU.

    Day 2 we seemed to stumble upon a lot of these types of cars. In fact right under our nose I found a small booth that was really different then the others.. no flashy lights, half-naked models, or an eager sales crew trying to lure you in with freebies. Just a beautiful deep red retro hot rod. After finding the builders, we got to talking and this very car is a true show car from the '50's that was found in sad shape. They brought it back to its former glory and added some additional custom work to get it looking as good or better than it did in its glory-days. This car is featured in this months HOTROD Magazine and we'll be doing a video feature on the car with the builder. Stay tuned!

    Gene Winfield Ford Kustom

    Even leaving the show walking outside, I found some amazing rides hiding in every corner and inch of the lot. This beautiful Kustom Ford is a Gene Winfield creation and he worked with his crew until hours before the show to get it ready and entered in the show. He had great things to say about Eastwood and we're honored to be doing an exclusive video feature on the Ford.

    Here's some of the best rides we found during day 2 of SEMA 2012 show. We'll do our best to keep seeking out the best rides for you!
