    .....I just got off the phone with Andy. I ordered a copper velocity stack from him for my roadster. I like the unique look of it and he's a young guy who's just now getting out of the Army trying to make it so what the hell. He makes these and hand polishes them. He said that everything he has and will have will be 100% made in the USA.

    Titled as a "Small Time Man". Written up as a possible child molester or bank robber in the text. I guess any press is good press.

    Used to send out 10 or 20 new product release a month in the early sixties to the automotive aftermarket print media. Can't tell you how many back yard businesses got their start with a picture and write up in the "WHAT'S NEW" columns in Hot Rod, Car Craft, Pop Hot Rod, R&C, etc.

    Your definition of SPAM is another person's big break in getting his name/product in front of 100,000 car guys. You did right by him in the end. However, "print spam" was very traditional in the late fifties and through the sixties and seventies.

    It looks like the copper velocity stacks are spun on a lathe. COOL

    Glad to see this article Ryan. I don't know the guy either, but thought it was a nice item, and cool to see him get this recognition.

    sometimes I really do want to give the “little guy” a place where he can show his ideas and his offerings

    Support that 120%.
     
  24. Thank You Guys very much for the support and the kind words. I am currently starting this company form scratch and besides building 40's and 50's era correct Hot Rods I am also looking to offer HotRodders Hand Made American Parts. I've always felt like hand made stuff has more character and more of a "soul" than cheap mass produced parts. To me a Hot Rod should be a reflection of your personality and character, and the only way to achieve that is with hands! Thank You again for your support and kind words!
