LOVERS of modified vehicles will once again flock to San Remo and Phillip Island at the end of next week for the 14th annual Kustom Nationals.
This is no low-key event: representatives from top national and international car magazines, as well as auto-related television shows will be present to broadcast the ‘kustom’ lifestyle to the world.
Festivities kick off on Friday, January 8 with a beach party in San Remo.
Hundreds of striking kustoms and souped-up hot rods will take over the township and rockabilly bands will set up on the foreshore to play hours of foot-tappin’ tunes into the night.
And after that the music doesn’t stop: the official Rockabilly Festival, held at the Grand Prix track, runs all day from 8am to 6pm.
The final day, Sunday, January 8, will be a non-stop ‘cruise-fest’ as kustoms take over the Grand Prix track once more, providing hours of entertainment and informative ‘how-to’ advice to any interested enthusiasts.
So, if you’re even slightly intrigued by hot rods, classics, muscle cars, mini rods or lowrider bikes, the Kustom Nationals is a weekend not to be missed.
There’s a good reason the gathering is regarded as the ‘holy grail’ of custom car parties in Australia. For further information, visit
