I was going to spell Customs with a ‘K’ so as to complete the alliteration of the title but upon closer inspection it occurred to me that the acronym created by such a title would be, well let’s just move on shall we.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Anyone?

Krispy Kreme Tropical Summer Custom hot WheelsWe (well I) recently teamed up with Krispy Kreme Australia to help promote a range of new doughnuts being released for the Summer and the resulting creations were quite delicious if you’ll excuse the pun – and my clear lack of modesty.

But like any good tale it’s best served with a back story and of course should always start at the beginning.

Savvy Marketing and an A-100

 

It all started with a humble little Dodge A-100 Panel Van – this little Dodge A-100 Panel Van!

I had just released a new Krispy Kreme & Assorted Donut Pack in my Online Decal Store and wanted to advertise them with something unique and eye catching, and what started as a small marketing vehicle (excuse the pun) soon turned into a much larger advertising platform than I could have possibly imagined…

The offer I (but mostly my stomach) couldn’t refuse

A few days after sharing the images of my custom Dodge A-100 on Instagram and Facebook I received an email from Jack at Krispy Kreme Australia asking if I would be interested in partnering with them for an upcoming promotion. I won’t go into the details but I will tell you this much – part of the offer involved free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and well, the rest is history. … just like the afore mentioned doughnuts 😀

So I went about eating some donuts making some customs…

I won’t go into details with the build as the finished products speak for themselves. Besides, apart from painting, detailing and adding custom decals there was not really all that much to these 3 builds.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Are Best Served in Three’s

After consulting with Jack at Krispy Kreme I decided on a trio of customs to mark the occasion. One vehicle for each of the 2 new doughnuts being released for the Australian Summer and a Maisto Flatbed Hauler (and trailer) to tow them around to the various shows and Krispy Kreme 1:64 scale store openings.

Again I won’t bore you with the details – I’ll let the following images do that for you* … *the aaah details bit I mean, NOT the bore part.
