Spinning Levers

Spinning Levers

I love vintage instructional videos and could have sworn that I featured this one at some point in the past, but apparently I failed to do so. And it’s a shame, because “Spinning Levers” actually goes a long way to describing exactly how a manual transmission works in the simplest […]

1932 Indianapolis 500

1932 Indianapolis 500

I’m on the road today headed back to Austin, but found a lost jewel of sorts – a 1932 Indy 500 Newsreel. And it’s May, right? I couldn’t resist… The greatest spectacle in Racing. Check it out:

Scratch Built in Moscow…

Scratch Built in Moscow…

Just wanted to share this entertaining teaser made for the Gleb Cherniy Speedshop in Moscow Russia. These Misfits-loving boys took a mystery 70s or 80s IFS donor chassis and chopped it up to fit their own scratch-built steel body that resembles a mega-sized Model T sedan. Lots of short clips […]

Martin Croston & The Vultures

Martin Croston & The Vultures

Fuel Tank TV is at it again. This time, they’ve released their full feature on Martin Croston & The Vultures. By happenstance, I spent a day touring the country side of Melbourne with Martin in 2012. He’s totally my kind of guy – laid back, cerebral… no muss, no fuss. […]

Mad Fabricators Volume 7

Mad Fabricators Volume 7

Apparently, I say the word “shit” a lot when I’m nervous. And I was pretty damned nervous when Piero and his crew came out to my office to shoot the segment on me, my car, and the H.A.M.B. for his latest addition to the Mad Fabricators library. I looked into […]

A Tribute to the Edelbrocks…

A Tribute to the Edelbrocks…

I don’t know how I missed this tribute to Vic Edelbrock Sr. and Junior, considering that that it was made back in 2005. Obviously it was shot at least that long ago, as a number of the amazing legends of hot rodding being interviewed have now passed away themselves: Robert […]

Where They Raced

Where They Raced

Hot Rod Magazine held a show a last weekend celebrating their 65th birthday and from the looks and sounds of things, it was my kind of deal. Essentially, they gathered as many past cover cars as they could find and then displayed them all at the Pomona Fairplex. Shit! I […]

Keeping it Forever, part 4

Keeping it Forever, part 4

I just came across another video that relates very well to the ‘keeping a car in the family’ stories I’ve shared recently. Of course with my luck, this video has already been posted on the HAMB, but when I saw this, it was too good to not share again. It’s […]

Oldsmobile Sponsors The Oscars

Oldsmobile Sponsors The Oscars

When I watch these commercials from the 1950′s, I often sit and ponder the level of shit they are full of. I know, I know… It was a simpler time. More wholesome. Honest. Cleaner. I get that and all, but that doesn’t mean the ad men of the age weren’t […]
