The 9th Annual Lonestar Rod and Kustom Round Up

Those who know me know that I love a good car show. I've been a fairly regular attendee of the Brisbane- and Gold Coast-based events such as Twilight and Wintersun (2008 pics, 2009 pics), so I was pleased to find out one of the biggest shows in the US was in town soon after I arrived in Austin.

The 9th Annual Lonestar Rod & Kustom Round Up was on last weekend. It was a good chance to get out in the rapidly warming sunshine, have a beer or two and give the new camera a work-out. Comparisons with the Australian shows I've been to in the past are inevitable: it was about the same size as Wintersun, with a lot more rat rods and lead sleds and a lot less classic muscle. I guess that's to be expected for a show that's all about rods and customs.

I've included some of the better photos below, follow any of them to my Flickr stream for a look at the rest.

Up and away
