Man, there's some people that could stand to use a good laxative.
Yeah, it would have been more interesting had it taken 10 days to get here, crap quality, damaged or wrong parts. I guess now days I'm just stoked...
Most people are quick to bitch when things go wrong but I just wanted to say that I had an excellent experience with Moon. I ordered some brackets...
Mazooma1 knows how to take nice automotive photos, notice no artsy close up shots of tail lights and hood ornaments.
Amazing that it was left in that state without some knuckle head painting heart beat graphics on it in the 80's!!
Thanks guys, this one says Sun Electric Corp. Chicago , Il, USA
Howdy! I picked up an old Sun Super Tach 2 this morning at the swap meet, anyone know what years these were made?
My tastes haven't changed to much since H.S. I still think 4 door cars have 2 too many doors, really don't care for station wagons or "dare to be...
I think we all would have paid to have been in American Graffiti!
Sounds like they use H&R insurance...hit and run!
Coming from Reno! Best swap meet I've been to in years.

Re: Aloha Bobby and Rose
I have boxes of Hot Rod Magazines from 1960 to 1979, those are the ones I keep and still enjoy thumbing through. I still get Hot Rod, read it and...
The first time I read about Barry was in a Hot Rod magazine in the 1970's. The feature was on a sweet black '40 Ford with a wicked flame job. Gray...
Mmmm. I still say it's much better than Boyd's old American Hot Rod show.
He always reminded me of an Uncle, dug him in Willard.
These are exactly the kinds of stories that makes H.A.M.B. rule!
I always dug the Chevado, Revell should have made a 1/25 model kit of it. Speaking of high '55 Chevys, does anyone know if this '55 street and...
That '58 DeSoto is much scarier than Christine.
Not to burst any ones "bubble top" but the car was never built to be driven, at least not with the top down. I've been in the car and was...
Hot Rod Magazine ran a short piece about the car a few years back, said it was actually a 1967 Z-28 with 1968 doors and front end.
Here's a pretty good car movie that usually gets left off car movie lists. Aloha Bobby and Rose, came out in 1975, first starring role for...
Just watched American Graffiti again with my girl friend, she said she's watch it again with me if I promised not to talk and tell her all the...
I forget but it was either Gene Simmons or Al Gore.
First time was 1977, Beeline drag strip in Phoenix. I went with my brother in law, he raced his 4 banger Pinto, 17 second ETs I believe.
I'm going down to the fillin' station to getta pop in his honor. He'll be missed!
What's cool about this movie is that back ground cars vary in age and condition. I hate it when watching a movie that takes place in the '1950s...
In 1985, a friend and I were taking a road trip to California from Arizona in my '56 Chevy. We were driving through La Mirada when I remembered...
That's right, he also did a bunch of the cooler Roach iron on designs.
