Go-Kustom TV @ Rat Bastard's Infestation 2012

Kitty Mansfield interviews Ron Foreman.

The Pin-Up Angels helping our troops with care packages.

We headed over early to vendor at the Rat Bastard's Car Club's Annual Infestation Car Show at the XXX Burger in Issaquah, Washington. Besides selling our Go-Kustom wares, I was taking photos for a potential magazine article about the event and filming both B-Roll for Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride and Go-Kustom TV. Filming B-Roll is mostly getting ambient shots of Hot Rods for my documentary, however filming for Go-Kustom TV entails doing full interviews with car owners and then filming their cars in detail. Basically I walked around most of the day with my Canon 7D around my neck and Canon HF-G10 in hand filming like a one man media production company! Meanwhile, back at our booth, my wife was busy selling our shirts, posters, DVDs and CDs to the masses. The show this year was excellent, with a great turnout and great weather. Lots of cars and owners I hadn't seen before, which is always interesting. Blacktop Deceiver played two sets of hard edged rockabilly blues to a happy crowd. Kitty Mansfield stopped by our booth for a few hours to sign some 8 x 10 movie prints, from the pin-up calendar scene of Rats & Gassers. Later she interviewed Ron Foreman, President of the Rat Bastards Car Club about the Car Show and how difficult putting an event of this size is. Photographer Ralph Gayle of SevenSeven Photography also helped us out with some Pin-Up shoots for the article I am writing about Infestation 2012. He is amazing with the camera. It was nice to see old friends and new faces at Infestation, this show is becoming a Northwest mainstay on the Hot Rod Car Show circuit.
