Dia De Los Kustoms 2016
On October 29, 2016, the first Dia De Los Kustoms car show was presented by Dallas’ own Los Hitters Car Club at the Velvet Elvis Lounge in Dallas, Texas. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the good ol’ Texas sun shined down on the show, allowing participants and spectators to enjoy the day.
The mission of the show was to bring a true pre ’64 traditional Rod and Kustom only car show to Dallas, Texas. The Los Hitters succeeded in doing just that! As the DJ played good tunes from genres of 60s Surf to modern day Rockabilly to Texas Blues, it set the tone to a good day filled with good people and their beautiful cars. 54 cars gathered to celebrate a new show. Dia De Los Kustoms gathered all the local guys from Dallas-Fort Worth area. The show even gathered builders and enthusiasts with their Kustoms from Houston and Austin, Texas. Along the show a couple of vendors were set up to sell art, crafts, and even photography photos of past shows in Texas.
Before the show came to an end, awards were handed out by Los Hitters to the winning cars in selected categories. Car clubs also awarded their own awards to their favorite cars. But the party wasn’t over yet! The Velvet Elvis Lounge hosted an after party for the car show with a headlining performance by High School Cesar.
This year’s 1st annual show left such a great impression that people are already planning the trip for next year’s Dia De Los Kustoms 2! And Los Hitters has assured that Dia De Los Kustoms 2 is already in the works to come back with a bang!
