Rockabilly: the Kustoms of Nova Scotia, Part 1.


From Stephen Hendrickson, in Nova Scotia via our East Bay (California) correspondant, Michael Moore: "We're in Avonport, outside of Wolfville, NS. It's on the west side, facing the Bay of Fundy. Facing what's called the Minas Basin. Absolutely gorgeous and cool clear days. Going to dinner in a winery tonight. My old friend Neil Jampolis, a theater designer and teacher at UCLA has his summer house here. The Rockabilly car show seems to be announced from his sign on the 20 and 21st. It's on route 358 out of Wolfville towards Scots Bay, but closer to Wolfville than Scots Bay. A fun discovery today on the way to the cliffs of Scots Bay--" SH
I'm guessing a c.1960 Dodge was the raw material here.
