Here’s a short video highlighting our trip up to the Norcal Knockout in Josie’s 57 Chevy. We had an awesome time up there, it was a huge honor to be invited into the Hall of Fame, and it was a huge and humbling honor to be awarded Kyle Martin’s Knockout Paint award. Song on the video is Goldfinger’s cover of Nena’s 99 Red Balloons, which again seemed particularly relevant given all the craziness in the world right now.
I had a great time checking out Skoty’s shop in Hayward and managed to grab a few pictures while I was there. Skoty had a awesome collection of Zephyr “stuff” in the office where we did the interview, as well as some killer in-progress kustoms, and some really impressive builds for customers on the floor of his shop. I had a great time checking it out and I hope you folks dig it too. Thanks for looking!
