Drag Racing: In Full Color!

Steve Johnson, owner of GarageArt.com, has been a long time supporter of ours. If this site was a garage and all of our members were walking about bullshittin’, wrenching, and hanging out, Steve would be the guy in the corner with his hat down low and a smirk on his […]

Lowered and rolling on 20′s…

I’m not talking about the latest “X-treme SEMA Edition DUB Ridez Playa mobile”, I’m talking Train Rail Inspector cars from the 20s – 40s. Steel disc wheels mounted on a car chassis with a cattle guard in the front- Maybe I’m nuts, but I think these things look pretty mean […]

Ferrari Fascination

Ferrari Fascination

Last night, a member on the forums brought up an old article that I wrote on Kellison sports cars. As a result, I wound up re-reading the piece, studying the accompanying gallery, and finding myself in a complete tail spin dreaming of the perfect Kellison to park in my own […]

East Coast ’40

It’s easy to write off the east coast style of the 1940′s and 50′s. Typically, cars influenced by this period and geography are heavily channelled and sectioned with a subtle chop. Once buttoned up, this often leaves you wondering about proportion and line. And being honest, it’s not a stretch […]

Valley Custom / Neil Emory’s ’37 Dodge

Valley Custom / Neil Emory’s ’37 Dodge

A recent post on a barn find got me thinking about Neil Emory’s beautiful ’37 Dodge convertible. His car proves the argument that a pre-war non-Ford custom can be beautifully done. Its just tastefully executed, and yet really distinctive. The dual sunk in plates (license and club plaque), Hollywood flipper […]

Garage Sale!!!!!!

You sit there sipping a Mai Tai and enjoying the view as the North shore waves crash on the sandy beach just forward of where you chose to park your ass for the day. In the distance and off to the side, you can hear some poor sap talking up […]

Black Lightning: The Russian Flying Car

Black Lightning: The Russian Flying Car

Disclaimer: I don’t speak or read a lick of Russian, but watching this trailer, I got the jest of what they were going for. (I didn’t notice the translations at the bottom the first time watching it.) The idea seems a bit like the Rocketeer, but with an old car. […]
