2011 Grand National Roadster Show Pomona Ca.
Custom Works provided some carbon fiber work to Steve Strope of PureVisions for their newest project, a 1972 Camaro. The car was featured at the Roadster show in its early stages of creation. The car is expected to be completed for the 2012 show, and should look like the rendering below.

A pair of our carbon fiber bumperetttes were feature in a composites material exhibit at the Petersen Automotive museum in LA. The exhibit allowed the viewers to handle the composite parts and compare them to their steel counterpart.
Optima Street Car Challenge 2010, Pahrump NV
Custom Works was on hand for this excitiong event. The field featured 50 Cars. All the major manufacturers were well represented. The top ten finishing cars were some of the best prepared vehicles, with experienced drivers. Mark Stielow was the events overall winner. The field featured a wide range of cars, trucks, street rods, and imorts, yes imports. There were many 2nd gens on hand as well. The event went smooth with no major breakage, and only a few close call, especially Polly in his bad Black 3rd gen Camaro, this guys is nuts!
SEMA Show 2010 Las Vegas!
The SEMA show this year was bigger than expected. No major innovations were discoverd by us, but it was nice to speak with old time business associates, as well as meeting potential new contacts in the industry. And the Women, apparently our in house photographer James Butler didn't miss a single one!
Pinks All-Out Sonoma, Ca 9/18/10
Custom Works would like to thank Pinks Cast member Brian Bassone for the Crew Passes, which granted us access to everywhere. We spent most of the time trackside. We had several customers in attendance, and the 2nd gen community was very well represented. I must say Rich and the entire crew work their tails off to make this a fun, fair, and exciting event. No one went home unhappy, and one guy won $10,000 click photo for larger image

Nor Cal Racers Club- Thunder Hill Race Park Willows, Ca.
We spent 5 days preparing the Datsun 240Z for its return to competition after nearly 10 years. We made it to the track, and ran 1 session before a clunky trans missed shift ended the day and hurt the motor, yes that makes 2 motors in 2 cars= bad season. Hope 2010 is better. Thanks Steve Silvera for your help in getting the car to the track.
After a brief retirement from Kart racing, Keith gets the kart out on the autocross track. I had nothing else to drive!

I asked, but the "King" Steve Kinser decided it was a good idea that he drove the #11. I guess my reputation is bigger than I thought. In hind sight maybe i should have driven the car, better luck next year Steve. Proof old guys kick A$$
