Here, we are Brothers…

Here, we are Brothers…

I love the comradery that comes from building, driving and even racing old cars. We have a unique bond because we appreciate those like us that build and maintain a vintage hot rod. The welding, fabrication and period-correct parts hunting can be daunting, but it all pays off in the end […]

A Revolution On Hold…

A Revolution On Hold…

Friday night at the Speed Shop… It was an open house and someone thought it might be a good idea to release an old Revolution tradition – The Kraken. Any other weekend and I would have been fine with such a bold move, but on Revolution weekend the spiced Rum […]

2013 Hot Rod Revolution: Cancelled!

2013 Hot Rod Revolution: Cancelled!

Mother Nature can be a mean old petticoat. She’s proving her ways right now as she threatens to tumble any that dare show their heads this Saturday in Gruene, TX for the seventh Hot Rod Revolution. We’ve been giving her the stink eye all week hoping she’d buy the bluff and […]

One Night in Austin: Dave’s Perfection Automotive

One Night in Austin: Dave’s Perfection Automotive

I was in Austin for work last week and had a free evening to connect with some old friends. Continental Club proprietor and all around hot rod connoisseur Steve Wertheimer was high on that list. He invited me to come by ‘the shop’ before dinner, which turned out to be Dave’s Perfection, […]

2013 Hot Rod Revolution: Last Call

2013 Hot Rod Revolution: Last Call

I’m badly bogged down and I think I know the reason: I’ve been at it so long – in the belly of the beast, as it were – that I’ve lost all functional contact with any kind of sense of humor. And where I come from, they call that condition […]

Another Report on SEMA 2013…

Another Report on SEMA 2013…

There have already been two really good picture posts on SEMA ’13 so far by Harrison and also by Tom Davison. While it’s probably true that there was less of the 100% ‘HAMB friendly’ hot rods or customs present this year, I would argue that there was still a strong […]

Sam Does Vern’s

Sam Does Vern’s

I talked to Keith yesterday and heard the turnout at Vern’s first yard sale was awe inspiring – people from all over the country picking over what might be the best early Ford salvage yard in the country. And to be honest, it was bitter sweet. But, Keith said most […]

Your First Dragstrip Pass

Your First Dragstrip Pass

I kicked back in my chair in the MoKan timing tower, basking in the air-conditioned luxury. A steady stream of machines dueled down the half-century old asphalt, disappearing from sight in a miniature smoke plume or ribbon-chute flash. It was apparent – the 2013 H.A.M.B. Drags were in full swing. […]

The Day Of Everything

The Day Of Everything

In my book, this weekend might have been the best weekend for traditional hot rodding of the entire year. On one coast, you had the “Throttler’s Picnic” which many of my SoCal buddies claim is the best event in California, period. And on the other coast, you had the absolutely dreamy […]
