The expense- account-havin' guys at Rod & Custom popped out from their LA base to check out the Lone Star Rod & Kustom Roundup, an event that despite its short history, has become one of the must-attends in the rodding world. Plus, it's in Austin, which means, for those of you not inclined to pick up on rockabilly chicks, have your pick of perky collegiate Republicans, jaded (but in a friendly way) indie girls, cowgirls and of course, crunchy-granola daughters of Sappho.
There's good rockin' every night, BBQ mecca Lockhart is just down 183, and there're plenty of vegetarian restaurants, too. Oh, and due to its central location, hot rods and customs show up from all over the nation. Praise be to Continental Club honcho Steve Wertheimer and his loyal Kontinentals for making this thing happen. Since pretty much everyone cool in the rodding world shows up, you should, too. Plus, it's in the spring, so you avoid the sweltering heat.
