Ryan Ford is a Pinstriping artist located in Central Victoria Australia. He is also the owner of Chopped Magazine and the Promoter of the Chopped Rod and Custom three day festival where pre-1965 style custom cars and music fanatics from across Australia roll into Victoria.
Taking place an hour and a half north of Melbourne, Chopped is a unique cultural experience similar to that of being thrown back to a 1950s/60s Hop Up Carnavale. Thousands of fans from around the country partake in a mix of traditional style hot rods & custom cars alongside bobber & chopper motorcycles with entrants running head-to-head throughout the show in two-lane old-style dirt drags entertaining the crowds.
