Old School Cool – Custom Car Revival 2019

Custom Car Revival is quite possibly the best Custom show in the U.S. and one of the only true Traditional Custom shows running. I call it the bees knees, Fat City baby.  Brilliant beauties were parked bumper to bumper in the parking lot at Edwards Drive-In and it was a sight to behold. Indianapolis was the epicenter of boss, A-1, first-class, out-of-sight Custom Cool.  The show was born out of the longing for “the good old days” of car shows. Kevin Anderson and Bob Davis are the glorious gear heads behind the show and devotees of Traditional Customs will forever be in their debt. This show is firing on all eight and is showing no signs of slowing down. As far as “the good old days”, they are here to stay! Thank you sirs, it is a show of shows!

At the Custom Car Revival, Traditional Customs are the one and only. No Muscle, Street, Rat or Hot Rods.  The magic years for these sleds are 1936 through ’65 the and vintage iron never looked so pretty.  Frenched, chopped, channeled and sectioned were the mods du jour. White walls were the name of the game and the chrome went on for days. Custom done the old school way, side pipes, fender skirts, pontoons and you can’t forget that stance.  The Revival was a veritable rainbow of metal flaked lacquered coated chariots.

There were Mercs in mystical proportions. It was history in the making, the largest gathering in recent history of ’49-’51 Mercs rocked the Revival.

East Coast, West Coast and hoards of hep cats in-between were representing at the Custom Car Revival.  Historical, homebuilt and contemporary classics, there was something for everyone. Cast an eye at this technicolor treasure trove of Traditional Customs, it was all that and a bag of chips!


Have a look at the marvelous gathering of Mercurys that made history at Edwards Drive-In.
