In just two short years since the Webster pavilion was transformed into ‘Koolsville’, the kustom kulture profile of the Spectacular has been enhanced in ways that have left the local kustom community clamouring for more. WAHRP’s Koolsville Co-ordinator Samantha Treloar has heard their call and in response, has introduced a program of attractions and events for this year’s show that will have fans talking for months. As well as the hand-chosen display of nostalgic rods, customs and racers, Sam has introduced the Kustom Pedal Car Challenge sponsored by House of Kolor, expanded the Miss Koolsville pageant, allocated space to a ‘40s style whiskey bar and invited a large number of international, national and local artists to contribute works to the first Lowbrow & Kustom Art Auction. With a collection of exclusive traders and an avenue of tattoo parlours, be prepared to spend a lot of time in Koolsville
In the rarified atmosphere of the nation’s top show cars, there are few that achieve nationwide exposure in real time. Keith Zee’s 1938 Fordson van has not only taken the east coast show scene by storm but is now headed to the west coast to wow the locals at this year’s Spectacular. And to confirm the rod’s status, it will be on display with its latest prestigious accolade, the 2019 Meguiars’ Motorex Grand Master award. Top show car constructors are a rare breed and we are honoured to have Keith and Jack with us to share their story of ‘Speedbox’ and no doubt inspire more to push the limits of custom car construction.
Following the massive public response to the national TV show ‘LEGO Masters’, WAHRP has worked in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Ascot (Inc) to present the popular West Australian finalists David Rodman and Gerhard ‘G’ to their many fans and admirers.
