Coming up at this year's KKOA Leadsled Spectacular...

Chad Kolman's stunning 47 Buick at the 2012 Leadsled Spectacular, this ride won the coveted 777 Award last year. 

Coming up at this year's KKOA Leadsled Spectacular, the Royboy Award. Okay so the name might change, but the long and short of it is that I'm giving away an award at the KKOA this year. My idea is to find someone at the show that is younger than I am (38) and has brought a finished or under construction traditional style kustom, hot rod or gasser. No rat rods, no big billet wheels, no digital gauges. I will allow airbags, and other modern items as long as they don't take away from the general vintage appearance.

I am working to gather up some sponsors to offer a prize pack as well as the award that my friends at the Sign House are helping me create. The goal is to give the winner a prize pack full of offers to save money in finishing their ride or building a new car. A 15% discount for any RJay's Speed Shop built item (or 10% off items they sell but do not create) is the first prize that's been offered up. Because you can't have your ride looking good and yourself looking bad our friends at Devilles Barbershop in Wichita, KS have offered up a prize at well. I'm in contact with a couple of other companies to offer more discounts for paint work, body work, and hopefully a lot more. 

If you have a company that would like to do a small part to help grow the industry by helping a younger car owner then send me a message to find out how to become a part of the prize pack!

See you at a show,

    1. Thanks, hopefully over the next couple of years we can get the prize pack to be so kool that we can attract more and more younger builders/owners!
