Join Borrani Americas at the 2012 Lone Star Roundup in Austin, TX April 13-15. (www.lonestarroundup.com)
We’ll have two vehicles showcasing our dynamic rims. The first is a 1926 Ford being restored by Mercury Charlie (www.mercurycharlie.com). Charlie is one of the leading restorers in Austin. You may remember his name from his work on Sweet Nadine. This 1951 Mercury Coupe won top awards and was featured in the Rodder’s Journal. http://rodders.netricksmedia.com/ – page 66-77.
After the completion of his Ford, Charlie plans on taking his newest ride into the judging circuit. We think you’ll be seeing a lot of this car in the upcoming months. Stop by the grounds to see Charlie’s hand-made rims and special engraved knock-offs.
The Lone Star Roundup is in its 11th year and going strong. The show has amazing cars, musicians and artists from across the country. Started as a small gathering of gearheads who had a love for hotrods and customs this event has turned into one of the largest shows around. With over 1,500 show cars and 15,000 spectators the Lone Star Roundup has a little for everyone. Learn more about the event here. http://www.lonestarroundup.com

In our booth area will be Jim Wallner and Beth Nelson from Borrani Americas and the head of the Borrani Classic Division, Matteo Bosisio from Italy.
