48 Cars in 48 States #40 : West Virginia

From the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay near the Bay Bridge it was a couple hour drive up to my stop in West Virginia to visit Travis Hess (tukipaintsit on instagram) in Martinsburg, WV. I arrived just in time for him to finish up work at the family body shop and then we got the roadster out.

Hess is a member of the Oilers club that puts on The Race Of Gentlemen in Wildwood, NJ and the car is perfect for the event. The kind of hot rod assembled to look like a 50’s era rod that I really dig.

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!
