BILLETPROOF IS THE FIRST AND LONGEST RUNNING "TRADITIONAL" ROD AND CUSTOM TYPE SHOW IN THE WORLD. IT BEGAN IN 1997 IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. CREATED BY KIRK JONES AND JAY WARD TO CELEBRATE THE 40'S, 50'S, AND 60'S STYLE THAT HAD BEEN LOST DURING THE 90'S BILLET CLAD STREET ROD ERA.  

AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF ONE YEARLY NOR-CAL SHOW A DETROIT EVENT WAS ADDED AND EVENTUALLY, BILLETPROOF CHANGED HANDS.

UNDER ALAN GALBRAITHS DIRECTION BILLETPROOF EXPANDED TO INCLUDE EVENTS IN FLORIDA, MINNESOTA, TEXAS, WASHINGTON PLUS VINTAGE DRAGS. AND NOW BILLETPROOF HAS CHANGED HANDS AGAIN.

   MARCY MOLKENTHEN OF HOP UP MAGAZINE, JEFF ALLISON OF ALLISON DESIGN/SHINE SPEEDSHOP ALONG WITH JASON KIDD OF FLYRITE CHOPPERS ARE NOW AT THE CONTROLS. JEFF AND MARCY HAVE BEEN CONTRIBUTING PARTIES FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS AND JASON BRINGS EVEN MORE. UNDER THEIR COMBINED DIRECTION BILLETPROOF IS BRINGING BACK MANY OF THE QUALITIES THAT MADE IT GREAT IN THE FIRST PLACE AND ADDING SOME FRESH NEW IDEAS. BETTER VENUES, BETTER MUSIC, MORE SWAP MEETS, MORE ARTISTS, MORE VENDORS, MORE KIDS EVENTS, AND A MORE PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE.

   2021 IS STILL UP IN THE AIR AS TO WHAT WE CAN ACTUALLY DO, AFTER THE 2020 PANDEMIC YEAR HIATUS, BUT SHOWS ARE PLANNED.

  IT IS OUR GOAL TO ONCE AGAIN MAKE BILLETPROOF "THEE" ONLY TRADITIONAL SHOW THAT MATTERS.... EVERYWHERE.
