Beatnik Blowout and Ventura Nationals



I'm off to see some Customs this year, check in after these shows for some photo coverage of them! Maybe you already have seen that the Beatniks of Koolsville have among their hot rods and customs the member who is the lead singer of Metallica, James Hetfield. The 3 or 4 vehicles that I've seen that he's had made are incredible http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/search/label/Metallica I'm guessing that the other cars in the Beatniks of Coolsville club are on par

The coolest thing we'll see all week, an Indian motorcycle from the 1910's or 20's made into a railroad service car
