2016 Daytona Turkey Run Car Show Dream Build …

As a crowd of spectators waited for the unveiling of the Dream Build, the Saturday edition of the 2016 Daytona Turkey Run Car Show was well underway. Not only did they reinact the reveal of this one-off 1955 Chevy 3100 Custom, but they auctioned it off for charity right here on the infield of the Daytona International Speedway. The winning bid was placed by Loraine and Todd Dotson of Orlando, Florida. They paid $150,000, with the proceeds going to local charities. It was all captured for a special edition of the South Beach Classics TV show on the Velocity Channel. Here is how it looked:

They called it the “Grand Reveal.” Under the canvas cover on the infield here at the 2016 Daytona Turkey Run Car Show was a classic custom pickup built specifically for this year’s Turkey Run. In fact, all the parts used to build this truck were sourced from the parts vendors in the giant Turkey Run Swap Meet here at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. Ted Vernon, from the South Beach Classics TV show on Velocity Channel was on hand. Then the builders, Complete Auto Body from Waldorf, Maryland, took the cover off this gorgeous 1955 Chevy 3100 Stepside Custom.

 

Celebrity Display of Tribute Cars from the 1960’s …

If you are a fan of 1960’s TV shows, you’re gonna’ love this slideshow. Remember the Monkees, Munsters and Green Hornet?

Some of the old Daytona area race cars will be displayed in the NASCAR pits. This year, they expect more than 6,000 cars to be on display in the show and for sale. There are always some great deals to find here. And the Swap Meet area is gigantic. Indeed, it takes up most of the pit area and infield at the Daytona International Speedway.

    I recently watched an episode of South Beach Classics in which they displayed the 1955 Chevy 3100 Stepside Custom pick-up truck from the 2016 Daytona Turkey Run Car Show that was auctioned off for charity, Awesome truck! I am currently doing a resto-mod on a 1967 Ford Mustang that has been in my family for years. I really liked the paint that was used on the 1955 chevy truck and would like to know the company that makes that paint color (??Wineberry sparkle) as I am thinking of using it on my 67 Mustang. Could you direct me to the company that makes that paint color? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
