Another fantastic Pride of the Champ show is in the record books, and if you live in Northern California and missed it – shame on you! Of course if you were at The Saints 10 Year Anniversary picnic in Marin you have a good excuse… fact is, we all would have loved to make both events, and next year we’ll all do our best to make sure these shows don’t happen on top of each other. That aside, we still had a great time and the winner of the first ever Gearhead “Punk Rod” award was none other than Nick of The Koffins CC. At only 26, Pocket Nick totally embodies the spirit of what this whole thing is a about – a young guy taking 5 years to build his ride from scratch, and what a ride his ’31 Model A pick up is! I didn’t know it at the time, but it was also Rolfe’s choice for Best of Show in the “lowbrow” section at the Cow Palace show back in January, so I guess we're in good company. See you all next year…
