Chopped Rod and Custom Festival 2012 Ep#2.
Chopped Rod and Custom Festival 2012
Hot Rods and rock music get back to their roots for the annual Chopped Rod
& Custom a three-day festival where pre-1965 style custom cars and music
fanatics from across Australia roll into Victoria.
Taking place an hour and a half north of Melbourne, Chopped is a unique
cultural experience similar to that of being thrown back to a 1950s/60s Hop
Up Carnavale. Thousands of fans from around the country partake in a mix of
traditional style hot rods & custom cars alongside bobber & chopper
motorcycles with entrants running head-to-head throughout the show in
two-lane old-style dirt drags entertaining the crowds.
Throughout the day and into the night the crowds constantly switch their
attention between the field of dirt drags and cars across to the stage
where 15 bands play Rockabilly, Garage & Rock through to Blues, Country &
Surf in the setting of the 'Tiki Palace' bar that drops you back into 1960s
island life with Cocktails, Tikis, & Period DJ's visually drowned by palms,
bamboo and a giant Easter Island Head that lights up the sky at night by
popping its top and flaming into the darkness.

look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is

of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends
the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail
order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about
everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult -
a work of art however... that'd be just fine.
