Be sure to come out to the 2017 show and check out the second 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.
Be sure to sign up and get your tattoo at the Starbird Show! Contact the individual artist at the below contact information to book your time slot.
Born in 1956 Jerry was raised in a small town in Missouri. His father worked on cars and taught him the same process. At the age of 13 he bought his first car a 65 Barracuda. When he turned 16 he started working at the local Dodge Dealership. In 1977, he saw his first custom car that inspired him. That car was Elden Titus’ “World’s Wildest Street Machine” at Twin Bridges Park in OK. After seeing that Kustom car, it inspired him to starting working on Kustom’s. During the next 10 years, he messed around with a few different cars to figure out the process of Kustomizing. His first project car that he still has is a 67 Buick Skylark that he chopped 6 inches, lowered it, 6 headlights, hand formed back end, shaved door handles, frenched antenna, and lengthened the rockers. Jerry’s love for Kustoms has expanded over the years with quite a few cars under his belt. As of June 2015 he has chopped 20 vehicles and sectioned 9. He has won a few awards through the years with his personal kustom vehicles including;1998 Darryl Starbird Hall of Fame Car Show – Personal Choice Dick Dean “Studeataurus” – 2001 KKOA Appreciation Day – Outstanding Achievement Chosen by Darryl Starbird “Studeataurus” – 2005 KKOA Rod & Custom-o-rama Class D’Elegance Champion “S-10” – KKOA Salina, KS Hall of Fame Gary Glasgow’s Choice and 2015 Darryl Starbird Hall of Fame Car Show – Pro Pick Jerry Dillinger “Skylark.” He and a couple of buddy’s built the Backyard Garage. They have done local projects around their home towns, but also have been main events at the KKOA Leadsled Spectacular in Salina, KS and the Darryl Starbird Show in Tulsa, OK. Be sure that if you are around those areas you check out these guys you won’t be disappointed.
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. If you fit the bill, be sure to apply for this year’s event using the form below. If you have any questions, you can contact Johnna Dillinger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 417-592-9367.
