The Rodder’s Journal Revival: H.A.M.B. Parking

Last year marked the first year for The Rodder’s Journal Revival and rather impressively, it featured a really high car count with some serious quality.

It’s my favorite car show in the world… and not just because I’m one of the guys that hosts it. It’s because the Revolution has become a sort of laid back party for a small bunch of guys with some really incredible cars. It’s a real throw back and I’ve […]

The 2013 H.A.M.B. Drags

On Thursday evening, he walked up from behind, grabbed my throat, and threatened to slash it. I turned around to see my smiling brother looking back at me. He had secretly flown in from the west coast to surprise me. It was then that I realized that this wasn’t going […]

H.A.M.B. Drags – They Are Here…

One week from today I will be running around like a chicken with his head cut off and wondering just what it was that I forgot to do or bring. I’ll be in Joplin and I’ll be nervous and stressed out. If you see me, hand me a beer and […]

Ray Farhner’s Corvette – Part 3

Ray Farhner’s Corvette – Part 3

Back in 2011, I wrote an article on my infatuation with Ray Farhner’s old ’63 Corvette. I closed the write up by saying that after switching hands a number of times, the car “now resides in The Petersen Museum’s permanent collection.” Boy, was I wrong… By now, I’m sure most […]

The Jalopy Journal Covers the Meltdown Drags

It wasn’t due to radioactive fallout from a Chernobyl-esque reactor malfunction at the end of the drag strip, but rather from the overwhelming abundance of dedicated people and their period-perfect machines.
