Green Goblin Customs, located at 2671 Highway 358, Canning, will be host to the 5th Annual Rockabilly Weekend on August 16-17. Vintage cars will start coming in around 9am Saturday morning with the festivities lasting until 5pm on Sunday. Owner Chad Hiltz will be chopping the roof on a 52 International truck cab and tattoo artists from Everlasting Ink will be in the house both days. On Sunday there will be a pinup contest and girls are still welcomed to join – no experience needed! HiDefRods Photography will be selling prints of photos taken on site, and the car awards happen on Sunday at 3pm.
It’s not too late to register your car for a freewill offering, but make sure your ride is at least 30 years or older. A canteen is on site and admission is $5 per person with children under 10 being free.
The 2015 Green Goblin Customs/HiDefRods Photography Cool Ride & Pin-up Calendar will be available for purchase over the weekend or contact them directly for a mailed copy. The cover image of this Grapevine issue is the cover image of this limited edition calendar.
