Celebrities at a car show tend to be, well, automobile superstars. And so it was at the 2019 Minnesota Street Rod Association’s Back to the 50’s Weekend.
Velocity TV’s “Bitchin’ Ride” personality Dave Kindig made appearances at the 3-day event, signing autographs, snapping photos and selfies. Fans lined up for blocks. Shop foreman Kevin Schiele (“Kevdogg”) joined him.
Kindig brought his new big rig to the Back to the 50’s Weekend and some “Bitchin Ride” vehicles. Kindig, a hot rodder, produces hot rods and customs. His shop, Kindig-it Design, manufactures automotive vehicles into customs. “Car design is an art form with few true masters,” he said in MSRA’s Back to the 50’s 2019 Visitor’s Guide. Schiele has worked for Kindig-it Design since 2004 and runs the over 27,000 square foot facility, according to their website.
“Bitchin’ Rides” can be seen on Velocity television. Some episodes are streamed. “Bitchin Rides” has 5 seasons, 64 episodes and 66 custom cars. Viewers will see Kindig and his team working on all types and periods of cars. From rendering and design to building and restoring, viewers see vehicles being made from the ground up before being revealed to the car’s owner, says MotorTrend’s website.
