48 Cars In 48 States #02 : Kentucky

There’s not a ton to share from today’s travels so I apologize for the short post. Day 3 I awoke in Lexington, KY and made my way over to the beautiful Paris, KY to meet up with Lee Ingram and his 36 Ford. We found a couple of cool spots that he’d scoped out and shot some photos before going to grab some breakfast and sitting down to record a bit for the podcast.

Afterwards I traveled south to Mount Vernon, KY, my second Mount Vernon of the trip oddly enough, anyway I jumped off of the interstate and took some beautiful roads back towards Hartsville, TN to stop in at Mike Howell’s Volunteer Auto Body shop. Mike was a guest back on episode 153 of Chrome Pipes and Pinstripes. Mike was the man who painted Ryno’s Golden Goddess and Bob Owens’ Buick both featured in this month’s 2018 Royboy Kustom Calendar Selection post.

After checking the weather I consulted with my TN car owner and we decided to postpone the shoot until later in my trip. A roadster in a forecasted thunderstorm doesn’t sound like the best idea. No worries, I had already booked an extra shoot for this week and I have days built into the schedule in order to make up for weather problems.

Enjoy the photos and I hope to have more for you tomorrow!



48 Cars In 48 States : The Great American Road Trip – A 48 state road trip with a stop in each state to photograph a traditionally styled hot rod, kustom or drag vehicle. Daily updates will be posted here on royboyproductions.com so you can see where I’ve gone, who I’ve met, some of what I’ve seen. At the end of the trip I’ll produce a 200 page full color book of the entire adventure. You can pre-order the book here!

Labor Day Weekend in KC is all about the Greaserama. Held out at the fairgrounds in Tracy, MO, it’s a great time with amazing cars, bands, artists, and people.

One of my favorite shows in the last few years has been Pistons And Paint in Denton, TX each November. Put it on your list!
