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.
