Ryan Evans from Count’s Kustoms and Vintage Works have teamed up for the Iola show.


Vintage Works was created on the principal of providing professional services to hobbyists at affordable rates in a fun environment.  Many of the places that provide the services that hobbyists need are focused on serving other businesses.  There is a need to provide services like sandblasting, powder coating, machining, and metal fabrication specifically for hobbyists, and that is why we created Vintage Works.  Along with providing professional services, we want Vintage Works to be a gathering place of talented, hard-working people, and we want to provide some unique and exciting experiences that can be found nowhere else in northeast Wisconsin.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to be a sponsor of the Iola Old Car Show this year, and are excited to bring a special guest to Iola.  Mark your calendars, because Ryan Evans from Count’s Kustoms in Las Vegas will be with Vintage Works for two days at Iola at the Team to learn exhibit area on July 10th and 11th.   Ryan is the Senior Air Brush Artist at Count’s Kustoms, and is a star on the History Channel’s hit TV show Counting Cars.  Iola attendees will have the opportunity to purchase authentic Count’s Kustoms merchandise as seen on TV that Danny “The Count”, Horny Mike, Roli, Shannon, and all the guys wear.  For fans of Ryan and Count’s Kustoms, Vintage Works now carries a full line of authentic Count’s Kustoms merchandise in our showroom in Green Bay.

After visiting Iola, Ryan will be spending some time with us to airbrush the graphics on our 1954 Ford Cabover truck that we are in process of restoring as our shop truck.  You can see pictures of the truck on our website,  and on our Facebook page .  We can’t wait to post pictures of the amazing artwork that Ryan creates for us in July!

The fun doesn’t end with Ryan’s visit with us at Iola this year.  For fans of the History Channel’s hit TV show American Restoration, Ron and Tyler Dale from Rick’s Restorations in Las Vegas will be visiting Vintage Works on Friday, September 4th.  Vintage Works is proud to now carry a full line of authentic Rick’s Restoration merchandise.  Visit our website or Facebook page for more details, and if you’re in the area, come visit us at Vintage Works, and let’s make something awesome!
