The Kustomrama Custom Car Spectacular

Customs by the Sea is a traditional custom car show presented by Kustomrama, the Traditional Rod & Kustom Encyclopedia. Held in cooperation with the Oilers car club, during the Race of Gentlemen and the Santa Barbara Drags, Customs by the Sea is a celebration of the traditional custom car. Both Kustomrama and TROG love the American racing and custom heritage, and the joint event is a living breathing celebration of that history filled with action and fun for all.

Santa Barbara, California 2019

The 1st Customs by the Sea car show in Santa Barbara, California was held March 9, 2019. The show took place in the brick circle at the Hilton Santa Barbara Hotel, and at the lawn in front of it, right next to the drag strip.


A Gathering of Pre-1959 Traditional Custom Cars

TROG goes through great lengths to bring its spectators back in time to those early days of racing, and Kustomrama's Customs by the Sea car show in Santa Barbara was a celebration of pre-1959 traditional custom cars. From the beautiful and innovative visions of Frank Kurtis to the wild paint jobs of Larry Watson, Kustomrama wanted to showcase builds from the peak era of the pre and postwar custom car.
