To kick off 2009, KA Custom in Huntington Beach, California, had an Open House party on December 6th to celebrate their second move and additional square footage of shop space. Kevin and Anh Francis pulled the stops with a great taco bar and a live band to keep the atmosphere personable and easy going throughout the day. What good planning too as this was the week before the annual Mooneyes Xmas Party at Irwindale Speedway. Lots to see including friends, cars and a few bikes in and outside the shop.

Kevin's personal project is a 1928 Chrysler sedan that will get the full treatment of a custom boxed frame and airbags to get it to hang just right for the family trips up the coast for the Primer Nats and the West Coast Custom show in Santa Maria. Power will come from a small-block Chevy with a vintage Edelbrock 3x2 polished intake, finned valve covers and sprayed with a nice dark metallic green paint. One word, sharp! As we all know those personal projects take a back seat when you're running a business doing custom drops, front clip mods and engine swaps. But you can be sure this one will definitely be worth the wait.

KA Customs is located at 16182 Gothard St. Unit T, Huntington Beach, CA 92647 714-375-4787.
