From frame-off restos to Challengers on 26-inch wheels, the Georgia World Congress Center was full of vehicular diversity, priding itself on having something for every type of automotive enthusiast. RIDES veterans SPADE Kreations came out from Cincinnati in a matte-black semi full of custom whips to rattle some cages.
