1320 feet at a time...

Spied this kool little Falcon at the GNRS this year...  With my dad buying a Comet recently, this gives me the desire to get that project rolling...

Not sure what to think....



My wife and I were out and about a while ago.  As we were coming back into town, I caught a glimpse of this sitting outside of a local auto repair shop.  I almost wish I wouldn't have seen it.  While I can respect the "ambition" this individual has, I believe the "execution" was........  exactly that...  An exeucution of a Mopar product...

I LOVE YOU!!!

Occasional Cruise Night...

In my younger years, I hit a cruise night pretty much every week.  As I get older, the thought of looking at the same cars week after week, just doesn't seem like a good enough reason to get the car out anymore.  Long story short, a buddy of mine had just gotten his car on the road, and called to see if I was gonna go to cruise night in an hour or so.  I was at the shop, and told him I probably wouldn't make it as I was kind of in a groove...  The more I thought about it, I thought, what the heck.  Glad I did, as the company was way better than the cars, but that is what it is mostly about anyway...


My buddy Mark's 46

More to come on this one....

My kind of advertising......

I took these pictures of this little roadster at the Hot Rod Reunion many years ago..  This was before the time when there were magazine articles on how to "faux patina" just about anything.....   There was a truck that had a similar paint scheme on it, but I haven't found those pictures....

Not a Corvette guy.....


Ok, let me preface this post with a small disclaimer...  I AM a kustom and hotrod guy, and usually do not give the average Corvette a second look.  My wife and I were out and about on Sunday.  We usually have lunch and hang out together, as we both have Sunday off.  We were up in Arroyo Grande at a place off of Grand Ave, and I see this Vette in the parking lot next door.  Normally, I would never bother to take a peek, but this is what I saw.....


It is pretty unusual to see Cragar mags and redlines on a normal vehicle, let alone a big block Corvette. 



I will not be running out to buy a Corvette, but sure did like the look of this one...

Gotta love a 58 Ford....




I have always loved 58 Fords.  I am not sure what draws me to them..  An early Ranchero is on my hit list in the not to distant future.  After seeing this wagon, this may be the ticket...

Kool Shoebox Ford




Took this photo in the parking lot of the Grand National Roadster Show..  I really like the simplicity of this car..
