Auctions will take place each day on the main stage of the I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama.

Krazy Paint was created by John “JC” Carollo and Ryan “Old Skool” Mohr. The charity for Krazy Paint is the Career and Technical School Foundation (CTFS). The CTFS raises money to provide scholarships and buy supplies for Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC) students learning new careers such as art, construction and transportation to name a few. It’s a natural partnership as many students are in automotive programs including body and paint.
