Survivors On The H.A.M.B.

Survivors On The H.A.M.B.

I’ve been a bit under the weather lately and have spent a lot of my down time just browsing both old and current posts on the H.A.M.B. I’ve found myself kind of searching out posts by theme and studying where we’ve been and where we are going. Through a natural […]

Memories of the Oakland Speedway & Stadium

Memories of the Oakland Speedway & Stadium

You may remember the post about my buddy Ron’s collection of patterns a while back. Before I left that night, he pulled out a small box of vintage racing programs and began laying them out on his dining room table. They were all individually wrapped, and categorized in date order. […]

575 and Me… Jalopyrama or Bust!

575 and Me… Jalopyrama or Bust!

So the Jalopyrama is an event that I have always wanted to attend. The idea of hosting a super high quality car show inside a National Guard Armory is just brilliant. Damned brilliant. Why didn’t I think of that? In any case, I didn’t… Some folks in Maryland did. And […]

An American HAMB in Japan…

An American HAMB in Japan…

It was pretty ironic that the amazing hot rods and low riders in Japan post came up a mere week before I was going to Tokyo for business. Without time to hit Mooneyes in Yokohama or check out the “Local Hero” cars in Nagoya, I didn’t have my hopes too […]

Speedworld X-treme…

Speedworld X-treme…

Typically, I detest anything involved with the non-word “X-treme.” ┬áThis two-part video might be the lone exception. It was aired in 1995 on an early cable channel titled, “EuroSport.” I first found it about 6 months ago and have been meaning to post it ever since. The X-treme footage of […]

A Historic Track Roadster

A Historic Track Roadster

I haven’t featured a classified ad in a while and figured now was as good a time as any. Our good pals in Dallas that make up the Scorpion Racing Team lost a member not long ago – Bill Collins. Bill was one of the most recognizable faces on the […]

Lost Hot Rods By Pat G.

Lost Hot Rods By Pat G.

So Pat Ganahl has a new book out titled, “Lost Hot Rods.” Essentially, it tells the story of a number of well known cars that were lost and later found. It’s a neat slant in that the book really focuses on the “hunt” more than the prize. As such, you […]

Day Dreaming…

Day Dreaming…

I’d be willing to bet that just about every car guy grew up as a serious day dreamer. I’ve always felt that it was somehow in our DNA. How else could a 12 year old be so deeply invested in automobiles? And since a 12 year old can’t drive, all […]

It’s a Duesy!

It’s a Duesy!

I don’t know shit from shinola when it comes to Duesenbergs. I’ve always admired pictures of them and I’ve studied a few in person before, but I’ve never really gotten close and personal with one. I’m a pretty casual guy and always labeled Duesenbergs as stuffy… formal… cars built for […]
