6th Annual Coastal Virginia Auto Show
This years Coastal Virginia Auto Show was one to remember. A slam packed convention center full of some of the country’s most award winning custom cars and builders set the tone as this years events unfolded. Love Kustoms was selected to be one of the shows feature builders. We brought 6 cars total including John Bottger’s 1950 Chevy Suburban, Marty Miller’s 1932 Ford Coupe, the newly updated 1972 Chevelle of Bill and Rita King, Ronnie and Cathy Hicks freshened up 1955 Pro Street Belair, and 2 Projects, Marty Miller’s 1932 Ford Roadster, and Dick Love’s Wildly customized 1962 Nova.
A new addition to this years show included a “Celebrity Builders Breakfast”, a ticketed event where attendees were given an opportunity to as questions regarding the builders, and the industry. This year our very own, Zac Love, founder and owner of Love Kustoms was featured as one of the celebrity builders.
This years show was an overwhelming success for our customers, the cars, and the team at Love Kustoms. The 55′ Belair of Ronnie and Cathy Hicks brought home the “Best Engineered” award, the 50′ Suburban of John Bottger brought home “Best Truck”, and the 32′ Ford Coupe of Marty Miller was awarded this years grand prize for “Best in Show”! We cannot thank our customers and our supporters enough for standing with us! A special thanks to Coastal Virginia Auto Show for allowing us to be a part of the show!
