I want to take this time to say “Welcome to the new Shelby’s Speed & Kustom website! We last updated the site in 2010 and we thought it was time to inform you as too how we perform today.
Each month, I will promote and cover one of our supporters. For the debut, I wanted to feature one of our biggest supporters and partners Rodding USA magazine. Paul Martinez and Paul Grace started the magazine in March of 2013. It wasn’t long after that Jason Slover (Owner of Pete & Jakes Hot Rod Shop) introduced me to Paul Martinez.
This publication is a sister to “Hot Rod New Zealand”. The magazine’s focus is on traditional hot rods but does cover 1959 and older cars. It is a bi-monthly magazine printed on heavyweight Gloss Art paper and features stunning photography of some of the best cars in the hobby along with tech features and updates of coming car shows.
Paul travel’s a lot to cover shows across the country and work hard to cover the event with pictures and a story that makes you feel like you are there.
Dennis Parks is a writer and photographer also covering events for the magazine and each year covers and travels to our “Deuce’s of the Bluegrass Gathering” here in Lexington, Kentucky.
Paul and the magazine have been very helpful to me and our non-profit Shelby’s Way “Bringing Awareness to Suicide Prevention” since we came on board after “Issue #7”. He has allowed me to full-fill my dream to cover and write an event feature each year for our “Annual Hot Rod Hullabaloo”. I personally don’t think that any other magazine would do as much for our non-profit’s mission as Paul has done.
You will not find this publication on the grocery shelves but are found by subscribing or by pick it up at a dealer like Shelby’s across the country. If you have not seen the magazine, I encourage you to subscribe at www.roddingusa.com or to purchase by reaching out to Paul Martinez/Editor at (520) 444-5603.
