Hot rodding's artist, Kenny Youngblood was at SEMA and for a donation was personnalizing Challenger and Camaro prints





Kenny started young in drag racing, at age 12 he went to the San Gabriel drag strip and got hooked. He has built, co-owned, driven, crewed and crew chiefed on dragsters and slingshots.

His most recognizable design adorns the sides of the ZZ Top Eliminator 34 Ford coupe, the pattern for the interlocking logo ZZ .

My earliest find of his art was in the front of a Hot Rod magazine around 1992, when his
........................................"Breaking 300"..................................................

tribute to Kenny Bernstein's breaking the 300 mph was featured.
He may have invented the airbrushed headlights on funny cars, he certainly is attributed with perfecting them, and due to the resurrence I believe I read somewhere that he designed and or painted the Hot Wheels/ Mattel "Snake and Mongoose" funny cars.
