Jeff Yocum: Turd Polisher

Once a year at the H.A.M.B. Drags, I get to hang out with two of my favorite people on earth – Brad and Jeff. Sure, they both have last names… but who needs em? I certainly don’t… But I certainly do look forward to my time with each every year. […]

Detroit Again

Detroit Again

I’ve been thinking about Detroit a lot lately. I guess it all started with the news of the Packard building a while back. From there, I began touring the “Ruins of Detroit” through websites like this one and this one. That, of course, lead to lots of reading on the […]

Asleep At The Wheel

Asleep At The Wheel

I don’t have anything of any real substance to write about today, so I thought I would break out one of my favorite images. It was taken on April 4, 1924 and features a lethargic Tommy Milton in the last and fastest Miller 183 ever built. The site was none […]

A Fast Delivery

“One of these days you may be casting about for a new and lucrative business to get into. Thinking it out, you decide that the Chinese hand laundry is a natural to bring in lots of bread, so you make the scene. It’s a natural – hardly nobody is in […]

The OKC Eliminators In Motion!

The OKC Eliminators In Motion!

Chris LeGrange comes from a hot rod family. His father, John LeGrange, was a member of the Oklahoma City Eliminators – a crew of guys that lived for hot rods and going fast. Apparently, one of them was pretty damn good with a video camera too… Chris got a hold […]
