Brand New royboyproductions.com

By now you should be aware of the new royboyproductions.com

I'm not going to waste a bunch of your time explaining it. Basically the blog has become the main ingredient of the site. There are links in the menu across the top of the page to let you go straight to Event Coverage, Car Features, Show Schedule, Galleries, all of your favorite components of Royboy Productions. There are a couple of "Coming Soon" pages, and yes I hate them too, but they are coming and I just wanted them there for place holders until I can finish the pages out.

See you at a show,

Royboy

Event Coverage: 2013 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular Part 8

 Sunday started with more rain, meaning my shoot of the Pacifica for a magazine feature was dead in the water so to speak.

Auto Shop, Inc. of Beatrice, NE Customer Appreciation Party

2011_AutoFest_0051
A couple of  years ago I just happened across a show on my way home from another event. That show was the Marysville AutoFest. At that show I see this super low, bagged black Edsel that was under construction, fast forward to the next year's show and it's all done and awesome. The owner and I become friends and he tells me that he couldn't have finished the car without Auto Shop, Inc. in Beatrice, NE.

Upcoming Event: Automobilia Moonlight Show

Each year I try to make this show, but last year was the first one where I was happy with my photos from it. The show attracts all manner of rides from the region and a huge amount of people. Getting there early for photos was the only way to go.

A Look Ahead: 2013 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular


As I type this we're about a month out from the 2013 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular. The KKOA in Salina is one of my favorite shows on my schedule, not just because it's only 20 miles from my house either.

Event Coverage: Winfield Garage Car Show Part 3

And yes that is ride height. Not my thing but well built and powered by a slant 6, something about it kept me sneaking a peek at it.

Royboy's Weekend Update!

Premier Paint & Body 4-23-11

On Thursday this week I announced that I'll be giving an award away at the 2013 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular. Included in that announcement was the initial list of sponsors that are kind enough to add to the prize pack that will accompany the award.

Event Coverage: BBBS Car Show in Salina, KS

As far as I know this was a first time event. Over 100 rides showed up to this free car show held in the South parking lot of Salina's Central Mall next to JC Pennys. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina put the show on and with the exception of needing a bit more room for the photos to look good, but that's me being picky :).

My 1951 Ford Custom: Resurrection Part 2

My 1951 Ford Custom: Resurrection Part 2

Part 1 | Part 2

In the week since the last post about my 51 I've driven the 63 Galaxie 13 hours round trip to Springfield, MO for the Queen City Riot and I've done a small amount of work on the 51. To see more about the Queen City Riot show coverage see the gallery here or the blog posts Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

All that I got done on the 51 this week was installing a new fuel pump and verifying that it was in fact working. Installing the pump shouldn't have taken nearly as long as I took, but it's on now. Just a hint, if the engine is still in the car, it's easier to take off the pump and the housing that it's attached to than to remove the pump from that housing, unless you have a special 1/2" shorty wrench or super thin walled sockets. So after some cursing, some head scratching and using an old Cragar S/S wheel with tire as a platform to stand on, I got the pumps swapped out.
