The 2017 Event

Best known as the creator of the VooDoo Psychosis 1930 Model A Coupe, the 1965 Cadillac Coupe DeVille better known as the VooDoo DeVille as well as the 1954 Kaiser, VooDoo Sahara.. to name but a few! All created at his Illinois based Hot Rod shop, VooDoo Larry Kustoms.

Not only is Larry a Hot Rod builder, he is also an awesome pinstriper, bass player in his band and an all round cool guy! Larry was with us for the whole weekend and was really excited to see how we are doing it over here in the UK!

We also had a particularly special unveiling of a never seen before creation from one of our best known Custom Car builders in the UK, Andy Saunders. On Saturday morning, with the help of Voodoo Larry, we revealed Andy’s latest build!
