Customs by the Sea
Customs by the Sea is a traditional custom car show presented by Kustomrama in cooperation with the Oilers car club and the Race of Gentlemen. Held October 3-5, 2014, the first Customs by the Sea was a gathering of traditional custom cars from all decades. Held at the parking lot by the end of Rio Grande Avenue, the show was divided into three areas. The heart and soul of the show was an exhibition of historic custom cars. These were surrounded by period correct traditional customs from all decades. An area of the show was also reserved for traditional hot rods.
The 2nd annual Customs by the Sea was held October 10-11, 2015 in Wildwood, New Jersey. The show was planned to take place October 3-4, 2015, but due to hurricane Joaquin, it had to be postponed one week. While the first Customs by the Sea was a celebration of traditional custom cars from all decades, the 2nd Customs by the Sea was a celebration of the early custom car. The show was held at the beach, right next to the Race of Gentlemen. The rules were simple: "Customs by the Sea is open for pre 1952 automobiles, restyled in a pre 1952 style".
