Two of our favourite guests are back this year and they are building our 2020 Grand Prize car. Be sure to check out our Prize page for all the details.
Gene Winfield is a legend designer, painter, and builder in the Car Culture whose work is as relevant today as it was in the 60s. The Winfield Fade is his trademark and he travels the world to help and inspire builders turn their dreams in to motoring reality. He loves coming to the Atlantic Nationals, and we love him for it.
Kent Writtenberry is an award winning master fabricator with a talent for building radical rods with endless style and a knack for creating masterpieces. At first glance, some of his builds look stock, but the longer you look, the more you see, and the subtlety of his genius soon comes to light.
Art Schilling, East Coast Artie Pinstriping
In more than forty years of pinstriping and creating signs, there isn’t much that East Coast Artie hasn’t done. Be sure to look for him at the Atlantic Nationals and find out first hand why Artie is much sought after for his pinstriping talents.
Von Hot Rod, pinstriper extrodinaire
He's a master of the fine line, a pinstriper from California, and he's definitely left his mark on Atlantic Nationals. His steady hands lay down some mean stripes, and he'd be happy to lay some paint on just about whatever you bring him. Be sure to check out his work and get some stripes of your own.
Andrew Comrie-Picard, pro race driver, stunt driver, and TV host
Andrew is a North American Rally Champion, X Games medalist, feature film stunt driver, host of Discovery Channel’s Ultimate Car Build-off and Car Saviors. Corporate speaker, consultant, and brand ambassador.. He's won at Targa Newfoundland, raced at Pike's Peak, and is the 2009 North American Rally Cup championship winner. He is definitely a car guy with a wealth of experience behind the wheel and a great person to chat with.
Charlie Decker, Bandit Pinstriping
A Master of fine, hand painted, one of a kind pinstriping art designs, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Charlie started striping and designing in high school and with over 20 years invested into his craft, the man is laying down some very impressive lines. His canvas can be anything from antique to brand new, 2 wheels to 18. From a simple accent or double line down the side to a complex, clean design with style and a built-in coolness factor.
