A ’26 Ford Roadster The Right Way

A ’26 Ford Roadster The Right Way

I like sleak lines, low profiles, and fluid silloettes. When I think about Model-T’s, I usually think about Herman Munster or, well… Let’s just be frank – Typically, Henry’s really early stuff is tall and somewhat ungainly even when hot rodded. While there is some charm in that look and […]

The Wishbone

The Wishbone

Admittedly, I’ve never been a Roth fan. Well actually, I’ve always been a huge fan of Roth’s, just not so much of his cars. In fact, my favorite Roth car ever was one of his daily drivers, not one of his show rods. I guess it’s the style over substance […]

The Beauty Of Speed

The Beauty Of Speed

Forget everything you know about cars for a moment. Don’t think about your pre-conceived notions of what’s cool. Don’t think about history. Don’t think about driving. Don’t think about building. Just think about shape and what makes your eye happy. Forget everything else. Are you there yet? Is your mind […]

Sharp Shiftin’ Wagon

Sharp Shiftin’ Wagon

A few months ago, Joyo and I coasted into Austin on our return trip from Ohio with a tranny making funny noises. It still shifted fine, but the sound resonating from under ’60 Chevrolet wagon sure did sound fatal. The high dollar 700R4 from Art Carr was pulled and taken […]

The Hot Rod Revolution…

The Hot Rod Revolution…

What, you didn’t hear? It went down this weekend in Austin, TEXAS. Deke Dickerson and the Thunderchiefs (god, I love Shaun) played their hearts out, Home Slice provided the food, and Lone Star passed out the refreshments. The turn out was small, but important and we all had a hoot… […]

Well Done Deuce

Well Done Deuce

The Kennedy’s finished their deuce sedan this past week and it turned out perfect. I love the stance, I love the rolling stock selection, and I absolutely love the stock interior… A lot of really smart choices all over the car actually, but I think what I like most is […]

Wally Parks Remembered

Wally Parks Remembered

I considered Wally Parks a good friend and mentor. I’m not sure, but I think Wally probably just thought of me as some “pain-in-the-ass” kid. I’d call with questions or ideas and he would patiently answer them and give me direction. I say “patiently”, because I could feel that he […]
