Koolsville XMAS Party 2012

The annual  “KOOLSVILLE” XMAS Party 2012 was held on Saturday December 1st at Brendale on Brisbane’s north side. The invitation was extended to Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Classic and Kustom Cars plus Choppers, Customs and Classic Motorcycles. We rode in with a group of Harley and Triunph riding friends and three wives driving a Ford Thunder Bird and a tough HQ fitted with a 454 Chev big block. There was a BBQ and drinks on offer, and a great Band. Little Mick was putting on a Helmet Painting and  Airbrush Displays – despite a strong breeze tipping over the easels just to make life hard. Kids activities were also provided outside with a jumping castle and tempory tattoos, while Tracey and the girls were offering great deals on all the clothing, accessories and collectibles inside. Lots of motorcycles were on display including one of Mick’s best known custom creations, the bubble top side car outfit on the Harley chopper. Dozens of great bikes were on display including an owner built H-D Trike, a custom Fat Boy, a 1969 Triumph Tiger, a supercharged H-D bagger and an S&S 93 inch Panhead powered chopper.

Tracey’s Kustom Buick was also on display and a number of Kool old trucks including a “work in progress” International Tow Truck. Keep an eye out for this one at a show near you next year, it features awesome engineering, 4 SU carbs on a hand built individual runner, cross over manifolds, marinised exhaust manifolds, a really cool valley cover with Moon Eyes breather, 4 individual fuel filters etc, etc. The cab was dropped way down over the chassis and the rear chassis rails were narrowed for the wide rear wheels and tyres. The more you look the more details you found. A custom painted Chrysler Valiant Show Panel Van was also on display with many period modifications including a Trans Am front, side pipes, diamond tuffted velvet interior, great murals by Mick and a finely detailed engine bay. Great fine weather, not too hot with a cool summer breeze and good music helped make for a very enjoyable Koolsville XMAS Party 2012.
