Each year, we search that one “rat.” We look and search east to west, and sometimes when looking, you find what you are looking for right under your feet. While hosting Hell on Wheels last year, a good friend, who is a builder and an artist, let me know he was bringing his latest project, a 1928 Ford model A sedan. Knowing Jeff Watts of KiloWatts Creations, it had to be a pretty kool project. Sure enough, once she rolled in slow and low, it was over. “Jezebel” stole the show. From a combination of history, tradition, art, and passion, this old girl took best of show, with all her rust and exposed wood.
Jeff Watts is a local builder is the Atlanta, Georgia scene. Jeff Watts of KiloWatts Creations will host an in-depth documentary on Garage71 radio, Sunday, March 18th at 8PM. Dashboard Confessional takes a walk in history up to current shop days with Jeff Watts. We discover his upbringing, influences, and current day projects.
