KKOA AMERICAN KUSTOM KAR BUILD-OFF!

As this is being written, kustom car builders across America are thrashing on  kustom projects, with one destination! To meet-up in Salina Kansas, at the 37th Leadsled Spectacular, July 27-30, ’17.

The American Kustom Kar Build-Off is a competition for, and amongest “KUSTOM CAR & TRUCK BUILDERS.” The innovators, and fabricators, the visionaries of today, and the guys that actually get it done. We can’t forget the designer gals either. 

This competition is all about the opportunity to give "RESPECT" to the kustomizer’s who are getting their hands dirty...and a super opportunity for them to SHINE and SHOWCASE their kustom talent’s.

A chance to recognize builders from all over the country that are getting involved, and giving us a vision of where our kustom sport is currently now, and where it’s heading. For certain, ranging from MILD to WILD builds, the kustom world is thriving like a well tuned flathead!

Competitors in this years competition, (so far), are Tim Dempsey from the Chicago area, Greg Joslin from Peru, Kansas, Jerry Dillinger from Seneca, Missouri, Warren Sallee from Wichita Kansas, Dustin Milligan and Geno Walker from Bartlesville, Ok., James Laga from Austin,Texas, Marco Gomez from, Big Lake, Texas, Jess Castillo from Los Angeles,Ca., Goody Goodman from Alston Mass., Scott Mills from Independence,Kansas, Rick Murrey of Denver, Co., and Jeff Myers from Arkansas City, Kansas.

The MAIN prize in this "Builders" competition is the RESPECT of other builders and the KKOA Kustom World at large. There’ll be a perpetual trophy, some loose change$, (cash), dash plaques for the first attempt, and steak dinners to all that finish. KUSTOMS ILLUSTRATED magazine has agreed to do a feature on the competition and the winner.

The deadline for this years competition is The LEADSLED SPECTACULAR in Salina, Kansas at the end of July…(27-28-29-30). Judging will be done by fellow well known "BUILDERS" around the country. All Build-Off competitors must be registered entrants of the Leadsled Spectacular.

So, who’ll make it to the finishline of Oakdale Park this July? Only the Shadow knows for sure, right now. But, If you’re into a project and want to get on board with the “Kustom Build-Off”, contact hotrodgenow@aol.com. He’ll lay all the info. on’ya of how it werks.

STEPS TO HOW TO BECOME A KKOA

     HALL OF FAME MEMBER!

Posted 3-27-17

  1. To get started, first a person has to be nominated. And, it’s fairly easy

  2. with a letter, fax, or email sent to the KKOA Clubhouse.

  3. (sorry, no phone calls, or Facebook)

  4. It can be done if that person is himself, but usually it’s by a friend,

  5. relative, or fan that believe’s the person they’re nominating deserves it.

  6. Sounds way easy, but super hard to back-up! The person being

  7. nominated must be one who accepts, and enjoys automobile body

  8. kustomizing on any make, model, or year, car and trucks, 24-7, 

  9. 365 days a year. Kindly let us re-state that to be very clear!!!

         A NOMINEE MUST BE ONE THAT ACCEPTS ANY MAKE, MODEL, OR YEAR

         BODY KUSTOMIZED CARS & TRUCKS!

  1. A piece of cake if you know you’er in that category, or if you know 

  2. someone w/those credentials.

  3. To be eligible for nomination, and become a member, there’s no age

  4. bracket. It can be a male or a female. A professional builder, or weekend warrior

  5. kustom builder, a automotive artist, pinstriper, kustom interior person,

  6. journalist, painter, retailer. It can be any person who promotes the

  7. world of automotive kustomizing 100%. Even a kustom enthusiast who can’t

  8. build a kustom for whatever reason, so they pay the bill’s to have one built for them.

  9. The edge anyone of the above mentioned can have is the amount of

  10. enthusiasm and high school spirit one has to promote, or has

  11. promoted to the world of automotive kustomizing.

  12. But, that don’t mean they have to flaunt it, and stand around and brag

  13. about it. There’s kustom minded people who don’t like the spotlight, but are super

  14. talented, and promote their passion with what they do quietly.

  15. We’re sure someone will notice and let us know. Just as many have.

  16. What we need here at the KKOA clubhouse on a possible nominee is

  17. information about the person. Kustom back-ground history. Years of

  18. experience isn’t as important as amount of credits and enthusiasm.

  19. From what is sent  us, we research and use your info. to discuss

  20. with KKOA officials, and eventually use as

  21.  material to determine a nominee.

  22. After the 8-10 nominee’s are selected from all received by April 1, by 

  23. KKOA Staff & Officials, we here at KKOA print the received nominee

  24.  info. into equal size paragraphs, to be fair to each nominee, and send

  25. them to all living KKOA Hall of Fame members, asking them to pick

  26. their top three nominee’s. Plus, we also send the nominee list to

  27. selected magazine editors, and KKOA officials for their votes. Once all

  28. the votes are in, they are counted and the top two voted nominee’s

  29. become the inductee’s for that year.

  30. Winners will not be notified, or announced publicly until Friday eve. at

  31. the Leadsled Spectacular Tonite Show in Salina, Kansas. All nominee’s

  32. are encouraged to be there, but need not be present to be inducted.

  33. That’s how it’s done, and now we’re encouraging fellow KKOA 

  34. members to help us find those unsung hero’s of our kustom world,

  35. simply by sending us your nomination. - ed. @ KKOA
