    Here's another cover, featuring more '32s.

    There's always something interesting happening at the South West Speed Shop. Spencer T and Jude are currently working on a make-over of a '32 5W, that a customer brought in a couple of months ago.

    Here's a nice new cover and I didn't use a '32.

    Long before the days of The South west Speed Shop or The North East Hot Rod Company had even been thought about, one tended to create parts in the garages and sheds at home. That's how the Rea Weir Mumford #24 salt car came about. The track nose of which was made right here in the garage that has also now become the world head quarters of 'The Magazine Of The Mind Publishing Company'. Who would of thought, that from such humble beginnings something like that would eventuate.
    So as a small tribute to that history, a new/old cover was created.

    I met Brian Wright at Pleasanton in 1998. We had been to Bonneville for the 50th anniversary Speed Week. Brian sent me these shots a few months later.

    A while back I mentioned that Tony is trying to get Mark ( the owner of the trim shop where Tony helps out one day a week ) into an old delivery for the business. Here's another cover featuring what I know Tony would think is the perfect vehicle.

    After I posted that cover here, I get an e-mail from Spencer T at 'The South West Speed Shop'. He says, I know poppy Tony wants a hot rod delivery for the trim shop, but I don't think slicks and big sticking out chrome wheels really cut it for the street in this day and age. You know it won't only be Mark using it for the shop, it will also be the apprentice ( Jake ) and you got to know poppy Tony will grab the keys at every opportunity. An old hot rodder like him, wouldn't be able to help himself with that worked flathead and those slicks.
    So Spencer T told me what changes he would make so it would be a more user friendly shop truck.
    So here is the revised cover and delivery.

    PS. At least the worked flathead stayed.

    Hey thanks for the cover Geoff and the article about hopping up Plymouths is appropriate too LOL
    I usually check in every day but I would have worn out my "like" button as you've posted so many 32-5 windows lately.

    Thankyou Peter. I knew you would like that cover. As well as all the others with '32s on them. To you and your family have a great Christmas.

    Hiya Wardog. They are great images of the crew from 'The North East Hot Rod Company'. It's good that you got the office girl into the shot as well. We watch all these hot rod building shows and the staff behind the scenes never get to share the on camera glory. I am sure the merry band of hot rod mentors are getting a laugh from my whimsical ramblings. To you, all your family and most importantly the crew at 'The North East Hot Rod Company' have a great Christmas. We all look foward to seeing and hearing the stories from up that way in the new year.

    Hi Tom, good to see you.
    I haven't had a chance to get up into the hills to see if I can track down that mythical 5W. That is if it is still there or in fact ever was.
    It's always good to see an image of your roadster.
    I was looking at shots of it in the shed at Tyers the other day. Along with shots of when I built this garage over 20 years ago. Special memories of my dad, my brother, Garry and myself. I love this shed, it is my sanctuary, nearly all of who I am, is physically in here along with so many memories. A big part of all of that is this actual thread as well, I guess it exposes a side of me that not everyone I know, was aware of.
    Ah ha enough of that. It is a time of year for reflection I guess.
    Tom, to you, Natasha, Ethan and Jackson. The time you guys spent down here was special to all of us, it may have been brief but it was an important part of all our lives. Merry Chrtismas mate. From Margaret and myself.

    Got this in the mail this morning, from the ' Crankster Kids'.
    On the back they mentioned stuff like marketing and business plans, they need to get themselves out there in the hot rod and custom market place. Geeeeeeez what have we created????
    I think 'The Magazine Of The Mind Publishing Company', might have to watch it's back. I hope they can't write imaginative short hot rod storys, like an unknown editor from down in 'The Valley'.

    Great talking to you Tom, the rusty coupe looks great. I need to go and mow the lawns now, but I will see what I can come up with, using those 2 images.

    Geoff, great work as usual. You're photo chops consistently make me question whether I made the right choice deciding to start a 32 chassis for the coupe. Tommy, any time buddy. That coupe already has a menacing profile.

    Hi Justin, I was thinking about you guys the other day.
    Yeah that is a great looking coupe. I think from memory I lowered and chopped it before I added it into the main image.
    Please say hello to your dad and Michael from me tomorrow. To you and all the family Merry Xmas.

    Hey Wardog. Ah ha, maybe it should be, 'The Messing With The Mind Publishing Company'. It's all good fun and I am sure what ever direction your 'A' coupe takes, the guys at 'The North East Hot Rod Company' will keep you on track. Take care.

    I was talking to Tom earlier on the phone and he asked if he should post some images of the rusty coupe. My answer was obvious. So I had to whip up a cover. One that tells the story of another couple of brothers who are venturing into the world of hot rod building with their father. So look out for hot rods and stories from 'Tommy Flathead and Sons'.

    Here's a cover featuring a number of icons for those of us into hot rods here in Australia. Castlemaine, Custom Rodder magazine and a '32 roadster.
