It’s that time of year again as the jolly man with his led sled full of custom gifts for all the good rockabilly boys and girls rolls into the final Rats, Tatts n Pinups event for the year at the Chelsea Heights Hotel! He’s here to bring Christmas cheer to all the hard working Kingpin Kuztum team and their loyal band of fans! Little does he know they’ve been celebrating the good times on a regular basis, at least once a month if not more!! No wonder his sled is so light on with pressies!! They’ve all been bad but they are good at it! Sorry guys, doesn’t count!!
Growing up in the home of Australian hot rodding, Castlemaine in central Victoria, Kelvin Waddington’s direction in life was inevitably skewed towards the modified car scene, in particular, the hot rodding scene. “I joined the local hot rod club when I was 12 here in Castlemaine and I’ve been messing around with cars since I was 10 years old. I did my spray painting apprenticeship at a local smash repair shop and then I started my own paint and panel business that I’ve now been involve in for 36 years! My two boys, Marc and Heath run the company now and have expanded into the full workshop and aftermarket parts business you see here” he explains.
