Be sure to come out to the 2018 show and check out the third annual Rockin' Billy Bash! A celebration of the spirit of the traditional Rod and Kustom kulture, as well as the do it yourself attitude that everyone can relate with. We'll have pinstripers, tattoo artists, rock n' roll and more through out the entire weekend. Have a car you'd like to enter for the weekend or just a day? Well you now have the option to do both with the exclusive indoor cruise-in format. Got a business that's geared toward the greasers and pinups? We'll have room in the area for vendors to setup as well.
Also, if your car personifies what the Rockin' Billy Bash is all about, perhaps you'll take home a trophy as a part of the new found "Dirty Dozen"! By no means a trophy for the prettiest or best, but instead an indictment to the twelve cars that truly display what the old school Rod and Kustom kulture is all about.
Keith Dean, Host
South End Kustom
Keith Dean is a multi-award winning, Hall of Fame fabricator based out his shop, South End Custom (Hemet, CA).

The Wrench Wenches
Kelli loves not only restored and custom cars, but the culture that surrounds it- the style, way of life, cruising, dragging, and racing. Currently, the Witte Family is restoring a 1959 Chevy Bel Air that was bought off the lot four generations ago and also looking for a project car for their 13 year old son.
A So Cal native, Jan helped Keith Dean convert her own 4-door 1950 Merc into a show winning radical custom. She is an original member of The Wrench Wench Car Club and not afraid to get her hands dirty.
Anna Marco, Founder
Anna is the founder of the Wrench Wench Car Club, a group of women passionate about hot rods and custom cars. These gals know what they are doing when it comes to vehicles “because wrenches and wenches make your nuts tight.” Her current build project, a custom 1955 Studebaker Commander is dedicated to Bill Hines and Larry Watson. It is an Ol Skool Rodz Magazine feature car for tech tips.
Randi is passionate about cars and learning about them thanks to her husband, Aaron. Old Chevrolets are among her favorites. Someday, she hopes to own a 1969 Camaro or Chevelle SS.

The 50’s and 60’s lifestyle has always been a staple for the car world. As the heyday of hot rods and customs, people have always hung on to its styles, music and overall demeanor. None of this is more apparent than in the Pinup subculture. Curls, waist highs, tattoos and red lipstick are on full display in our annual Pinup Competition held through out the weekend.
