One Insane Tech Week

One Insane Tech Week

It was just after 3:30am when my phone rang. I stared at it for a moment and then hit the green button and said nothing. Three-thirty in the morning is not a late hour for some people, but they are usually not the sane ones. People that work the lines […]

Project 38: Blower Top

Project 38: Blower Top

When I first started building my ’38 coupe, the original intention was to go racing. In fact, I was pretty far along building a race car when I decided to transition the build into a street car. So far along, that once the car was finished it still had a […]

Which Way To The Street Rod Nats?

Which Way To The Street Rod Nats?

I’ve looked down upon electronic ignitions for years… They way I saw it is that if conventional points systems worked then, they should work just fine now. But it’s more than just being a loyal soldier – there is a certain level of security in the simplicity of points that […]

Road Trip!

Road Trip!

Ryan’s ‘Rivera Junkie’ post had me laughing out loud and thinking seriously at the same time: Driving a totally new-to-you car, that you don’t know at all, thousands of miles back home. Sure, most of us have done it at one time or another… But your never fully at ease […]

The Biggest Tech Week Ever

The Biggest Tech Week Ever

I’ve been dodging Shane from Baileigh Industrial for a few weeks now. He’s been wanting to create some kind of a “tech week spectacle,” but I just didn’t know if I could stomach his abuse so soon after the H.A.M.B. Drags. My knee caps and thumbs still haven’t completely recovered […]

Fear the Yoder!

Fear the Yoder!

I remember going to Bobby Walden’s shop party one year after the Grand Nationals and admiring the gigantic power hammer over in the corner. Up to that point I had never year of a Yoder, or realized what an amazing tool it really is. The old original Yoder power hammers […]
