The Long Road To Ohio

The Long Road To Ohio

That moment when all hell breaks lose is something that lives with ya for hours afterwards. I was looking down at my freshly installed tach when I heard a pop and saw my cup holder fly off the tranny tunnel. By the time I got my eyes on the road, […]

Charger: Found

Charger: Found

I know… This one is a little to new, but I couldn’t resist. I found it while on the road and thumbing through my iPhone and just couldn’t believe how the thread went down. A guy finds a crazy fiberglass shell and wonders about its history. He posts an image […]

On The Road Again…

On The Road Again…

I’m hitting the long road to Ohio and the Hot Rod Cinematic tomorrow morning and although I plan on posting a bit from the road, I’m not completely sure how much you will hear from me this week. As such, I thought I would fill you guys in on some […]

The “Jetson” Cars

The “Jetson” Cars

OK, admittedly this is pretty far off topic… But it fits well with the X-Sonic post from Friday and features some pretty incredible art from one of my favorites – Keith Weesner. “Fang” started the post looking for the whereabouts of the Roth and Barris hover cars and gets great […]

Last night I was on the phone with a buddy having a fairly typical hot rod debate. See, he’s a 60′s freak and I’m more of a late 40′s/early 50′s type of guy. There’s only a decade separating our favorite genres, but as we all know, a lot happened in […]

This or That

Lost, Then Found.

Lost, Then Found.

So while I was off on maternity leave, a pal pointed out a post that garnered very little attention from the masses. “Nsh57” had found some long lost family photos of the 1939 Indy 500 and posted them for all to enjoy. While they are few, they are nothing less […]

My First L.A. Roadsters Show

My First L.A. Roadsters Show

The Silva Family was headed out west to attend the L.A. Roadster Show, so I decided to talk Kevin into covering the event for us. Enjoy: As a kid growing up on the east coast, “The L.A. Roadsters Show” seemed a world away. I lived vicariously through the pages of […]
