Out Sick…

Out Sick…

I’m out sick today fellas. Got me a nasty case of strep throat or something along those lines. Even so, I couldn’t bare the thought of not having some kind of a post today. So, I fired up iPhoto and browsed around for some random photography. I’m not sure why […]

1960′s Show Rod Postcards

1960′s Show Rod Postcards

I’ve never felt an allegiance to the 1960′s era show rods. Sure there are one or two that I can appreciate, but for the most part they just aren’t my thing. I’m a “function creates form” kind of guy and feel like the opposite approach leads to cliche – form […]

So Long Larry…

So Long Larry…

A few years ago I was at the Grand National Roadster Show with my good pal Rod Powell. As a guest of his, I attended the Hall of Fame Luncheon at the event’s host hotel. It was exactly as you would expect it to be – a bunch of old […]

Then I found out it was going to be hosted at the Mullin Automotive Museum. Formerly Otis Chandler’s museum, the Mullin has been […]
