The Dual Charged Roadster

The Dual Charged Roadster

Carl Fleischmann was a genius. Not the kind that walks around in a white coat and spits out calculations from the top of his head, but the kind that sneaks around quietly and drops intellectual bombs when you least expect it. He was known in the 1950′s Hot Rod scene […]

The best drivers on the road…

The best drivers on the road…

I’m down in Southern California for a few days, working between Azusa and Anaheim. It goes without saying that the well-worn freeways of LA and Orange County are dirty, covered with debris, and congested with too many miserable cars and trucks. It’s a nightmare to drive here as a rental […]

Project 38: A Murderous Beginning

Around 16 years ago, I wrote an editorial announcing my new project – a ’38 Ford coupe that I had found just outside of Chicago. My goals for the car were ambitious, but the 20 or 30 people that were on the forum at the time walked me through every […]

The Little Deuce Coupe

The Little Deuce Coupe

I’m pretty darn sure that this video has been posted on the HAMB before, but how great is it to see the Clarence ‘Chili’ Catallo 3 window Deuce coupe being talked about by his son Curt? Catallo bought the ’32 in 1956 for a mere 75 bucks when he was […]

Family Road Trip This Summer?

Family Road Trip This Summer?

Yes my friends, the fine weather is finally coming around. That means that it’s time to get your trusty ride all tuned up and head out on the highway for a good ol’ road trip. Sure gas prices are near an all-time high, and there are more cell phone- chatting […]

The Ute…

The Ute…

Before my trip to Australia, I just considered the ute a cool oddity of sorts – nothing to be taken too seriously. While down under, however, I simply fell in love with them. As you might imagine, I saw all sorts – early Fords, late Fords, etc… And, strangely enough, […]
