Atlas Speed & Custom Shop Visit!

Despite cold weather and reports that the show has become a bit small I headed south Thursday night headed for Denison, TX for the 2012 KKOA Hotrodding Hullabaloo, Denison is also home to Atlas Speed & Custom so what better excuse to go to TX for the weekend?

Friday started with a shop visit to my buddies Atlas Speed & Custom in downtown Denison for a look around the shop and to check in on the Revolution 32 build. 

Mike's new toy, it's a vintage build right hand drive from England I believe. Super kool car, especially the front license plate...

Atlas' logo was done by Jeff Norwell, and it's cool factor is off the scale.

Lots of cool old Hot Rod mags and others for sale in the store area.

Vintage go fast goodies on display

Daddy-o was working hard but still took 30 minutes to show me around town and tell me some history.

Daddy-O's own Chevy waiting it's turn.

Modifying a $250 brake pedal to fit.

The Atlas boys are also the members of the band Pushrod who will be performing at the Hot Rod Revolution this weekend in Austin. Mike's dad was a member of the Leonard Stockers.

I'm looking forward to seeing the truck progress throughout its build. The 51 passenger car dash is a nice touch.

Daddy-O's sedan waiting along side the others (still say you need to give me this because I'm a super duper nice guy)

I posted this on the 32 build thread but if you haven't seen it here ya go.

To see the entire build thread go here.

See you at a show,

Royboy Features Episode 2 Jeff Myers' 63 Galaxie

I've been blessed to meet some great folks in my travels around the midwest attending car shows from Austin to Chicago. So about a year back I decided that I wanted to feature some of the great people and their vehicles in a way that photographs alone couldn't do. So in August the first video was released of Yblock292's 29 Roadster. A bit behind schedule here is the 2nd video, this time of Finkd (Jeff Myers) beautiful mild custom 63 Ford Galaxie.

Jeff has become a great friend and was nice enough to take me and the camera for a ride to explain all about the car. I hope you enjoy it!

Jeff's Arkansas City, KS based shop Premier Body & Paint is a H.A.M.B. Alliance Vendor so if you need some work done, make sure to join and let him know you're a member! Music in this one was provided by my buddies The Rumblejetts, make sure to support them as well.

See you at a show,
