Custom Car August 2012 – Martin Ely’s Pickup

Fresh in the shops is the August issue of Custom Car and included is a feature that I shot of Martin Ely’s Willys Pickup. One that didn’t make the cut was my take on a Constable, if Hot Rods had been around this may have been what he was painting.

Cruisin’ Chimay Part 1 – Video of the European Hot Rod and Custom Show

Here’s a video shot from my ’57 Chevy, cruisin’ round the Chimay site on Saturday.

1st European Hot Rod & Custom Show – Chimay – Belgium – Part 1

Some shots going off to the mags but here’s a few to get started, some video to come too. It was amazing on Friday, epic on Saturday and a wash out Sunday. Loved the Executioners mock up of the car dealership from American Graffiti. Unfortunately the Moon Dragster had a run in with the armco, but everyone was alright.

Looking forward to the next one.

1st European Hot Rod and Custom Show

I’m very excited to be travelling to Chimay in Belgium in less than two week for the 1st European Hot Rod and Custom Show. I hope to meet up with some of my European friends who take the time to catch up on this blog. From what I hear there are going to be a whole mess of Rods from the UK. I’m travelling on a ferry to Dunkirk with about 50 Rods so look forward to the road trip as well as the show itself. I’ll have the GoPro ready.

If you’ve never picked up a copy of Fuel Magazine you’ve been missing out. This glossy independent Australian magazine comes out three times a year and contains some fantastic photography and articles from the world of Hot Rodding. It is a great pleasure therefore that the editor Luke Ray has been kind enough to give Book of Kool a mention in issue 10. Thanks for the support guys.
