We host many such events every year right here in our own Lehigh Valley. Our premier event is the fantastic Rod and Custom Jamboree held each August in Macungie, PA. Over 2000 street rods and custom cars are on display every year at this popular event.

Gold, Black Chrome, Satin & Brushed finishes, Powder Coating and plating on some plastic & fiberglass. Difficult Bumper, grill repair & Potmetal Restoration a specialty. 


Krist Kustoms has been in the hot rod interior business for over 12 years. Krist Kustoms started as a custom hot rod upholstery shop in 1998, and has been growing ever since. While they still specialize in custom hot rod interiors, they now have their own line of hot rod seating and interior parts and accessories.
