More than 1,200 finely tuned pieces of stone cold steel were on display at the “Sik-Nic Car Show” at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center, the biggest of it’s kind in the south!
With vehicles from all over the country, each show has something new to offer in the world of cars.
One man, Joe Vincent, does custom airbrush and pinstriping, and he’s one of the best. He started airbrushing t-shirts,but soon his passion for using designs on cars soon took over.
“I started about the age of 15, 16 years old and I use to go up to the Barmashea Mall and watch guys airbrush on t-shirts like Ray Guidry. That always inspired me, so they took me under their wing and taught me a lot of stuff. about 2005, I had a friend that wanted me to paint his bike, so I went ahead and painted his bike. Everybody liked it, so i guess that kind of started it,” stated Vincent Dezigns Studio owner Joe Vincent.
During the car show Vincent displayed his “Vietnam Memorial Bike” as a way to raise awareness and money for homeless veterans.
