HINES FAMILY BRINGING THE “BAT” TO SALINA!

As a tribute to the legendary late Bill Hines, the (2) grandsons of Mr. Hines, Mitch and Matt Hines, is bringing the “Big Bat”, (as Bill called it), to Salina, Kansas for the 36th Leadsled Spectacular. Bill was planning to drive his "Big Bat" back to Salina before his untimely passing on May 20, 2016. So the family decided to go ahead and drive it back, knowing what Bill would have done, and wanted it there. It was his favorite kustom.

LONG LIVE THE “KING" OF LEADSLINGERS!

NOT (1), BUT (2) CHOPS IN (3) DAYS!

The Late “Bill Hines Chop-Shop”, free chop, that has been a staple of the Leadsled Spectacular every year since it has been held in Salina, Kansas, (12 years), will continue on through the dedicated service and super talent of Keith Dean. Son of legendary California kustomizer, Dick Dean, and close friend of Bill Hines, Keith has built many high end award winning kustoms! He’s a KKOA Hall of Famer, recently inducted in the West Coast Customs Hall of Fame, and has won (2) of the coveted “Leadsled Spectacular 777 America’s Top Custom” award’s. All well deserving.

As we at KKOA have done over the years to determine who will get their kemp chopped free, we ask anyone who wants the gift (chop), to contact us, and simply ask. It’s that simple. We take requests up to approximately a month before the L. Spectacular, then we send them to Keith, and he picks the one he wants to chop during the Leadsled Spectacular weekend at Oakdale Park. This year Keith has decided to not chop (1), but (2) cars!!! I can do it, he sez.

            So this July, 29-30-31, watch Keith chop Ann Abraham’s ’52 Chevy 2dr., and Jack Curl’s ’40 Mercury coupe.

...DOUBLE CHOPS ARE KOOL!…


CRUISIN’ TO SALINA!

Butch Patrick, "Eddie Munster” of the smash hit TV series, “The Munsters”,

 and kustom car giant, John D’Agostino is going to be in Salina, Kansas

for the (5) day long, 36th Leadsled Spectaular, July 27-28-29-30-31,‘16.

Butch, is also bringing (2) of the series Munster cars! The haunting

“Munster Coach”, and the race with the devil “Drag-u-la” coffin racer.

GET TRIMMED IN SALINA!

A super kool lady kemper is going to do a first at the KKOA Leadsled Spectacular this year! And, she’s got the bat signal up to let everybody know she’s headed to Salina to cut hair! Yip,…she’s KKOA and Kansas approved to cut guys and gals hair the professional way.

            The chick we’re yappin’ about is Brooke Dolan, and she clips hair like she looks! Kooool. Brooke has let KKOA know that she's bringing her kustom built "Kustom-Cut-Trailer" to the Leadsled, and will be hanging out her “Open For Business” shingle throughout the weekend in Oakdale Park.

            Her trailer is a fully equipped, 50’s style vintage trailer, kustomized in and out, complete with air conditioning, by her likewise 50’s kustom kat hubby Dan. You’ll not miss it. So plan on it, and don’t get a regular ol’ ordinary hair cut, between now and the show dates (July 28-31), wait on Brooke. She's a pro at Fonzy greaser Duck-tails, high school jock Flat-tops, and Ke-mo-sob-e Mohawks. So what are you waiting for Daddy’O?
