Riviera X-11 is headed to Hot Rod Holiday!

Marcy Molkenthen’s ’63 Riviera X-11 will be on display at the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday show!

custommikesrivbw

The X-11 is one killer custom! From its custom made 8-lug wheels to the ’68 Merc Cyclone roof and the re-skinned hood using a ’61 Caddy piece to remove the fake scoops and add a subtle peak, not to mention there are many, many more custom touches to be found if you study it long enough. In fact, nearly every panel has been reworked in one way or another and the mods are so subtle and look so natural to the cars design, you never see them unless you are familiar with a bone stock Riviera!

phonyphotosriv

The concept started with a conversation between hot rod designer Jeff Allison and Marcy about her love of the Riviera but hating the roof lines. After much deliberation and design theory she then contacted the guys at River City Speed & Kustom in Post Falls, Idaho to pull off what Allison had drawn.

rivsideview

The interior uses the correct 1963 silver vinyl, but incorporating some updated styling such as stainless trim in place of the factory wood panels. Custom gauges were also crafted, including a tachometer since Marcy’s Riv’ now has a Tremec 5-speed hooked up to the factory Nailhead running a rare Edelbrock dual-carb manifold that was fitted with FAST fuel injection.

rivefrontside

It’s such a simple yet timeless radical custom, done so well most folks walk right by it thinking it is simply a stock Riviera that has been lowered with wider tires. But don’t be fooled, because this is the perfect example of a tasteful custom and we are proud to have it at the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday show for you to enjoy!

Meet VooDoo Larry & see the VooDoo Sahara

We are honored to have VooDoo Larry and his VooDoo Sahara at the 3rd Annual Hot Rod Holiday show.

VooDoo” Larry Grobe started building cars in his driveway when he was 18 years old. Fast forward 25 years and VooDoo Larry can be found at his 4,500 square feet shop full of kustoms and hot rods, VooDoo Larry Kustoms , located in Schaumburg, Illinois

VooDoo Larry Kustoms handles complete frame up builds to turning a daily driver into a mild kustom perfect for hitting the cruise-ins and car shows. One thing is for certain, VooDoo Larry puts his heart and soul into every build and modification.

VooDoo Larry’s newest kustom creation, a Golden Sahara “Recreation” is a tribute to the Barris Kustoms restyled Golden Sahara. It started life as a 1954 Kaiser Manhattan parts car he had at his shop. Larry had been dreaming about doing this project for many years and decided that the build was going to have styling elements from both versions of the original Golden Sahara, but with a VooDoo twist to create his version called the “VooDoo Sahara”. In true VooDoo Larry fashion, he pulled it off flawlessly and the VooDoo twists are ever present and period perfect!

Thank you Car Kulture Deluxe & Fritz Schenck!

Our friend Fritz Schenck  came down to the show last year and did a great shoot and article for Car Kulture Deluxe Magazine.

Thanks Fritz for the kind words and your continued support of the show!
Fritz was our feature builder and had two of his vehicles on display at the inaugural Hot Rod Holiday show.
