Here’s the latest on the new engine. The brake lines are in. And so is a line-lock set-up that had been sitting around on the “around-to-it” list for years. I’ve noticed that I’ll gather up things that I want/need for the car and then never get around to installing them. One project becomes two and … More The LQ4 Part Two – It is alive!!
It’s 6:30am and the 405 is a parking lot. I shoulda left earlier… But now I get to spend more time in The 55. I’ve gotta gig at the Goodguys 32nd West Coast Nationals up in Pleasanton about 350 miles north of LA and about an hour east of San Francisco. Instead of flying I … More Goodguys, Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks.
I saw on Instagram that Prestone was looking for 90 cars to help ‘em celebrate their 90th anniversary. They wanted to do a rally from Phoenix, AZ to Los Angeles, CA. I’m in! If you read my previous installment: “The 55’s Daily Carry” you’ll remember The 55 is pretty well prepared for life out on … More Prestone Rally
I think the 2017 Hot Rod Power Tour was the best one yet. For me it was a combination of catching up with old friends and making new ones. This year CB & I flew in a day early. My buddy Rio took time out of his busy schedule as the Commander of the 303rd … More Hot Rod Power Tour 2017

Earlier this year I went over to the Hot Rod Magazine offices to pick up some missing issues. While I was there, I saw a super tuff 66 Chevelle sitting there in the parking lot. I took some pictures and posted ‘em up on Instagram, FaceBook & Twitter. A little while later a friend of … More Lakeside 64
The 2016 Hot Rod Power Tour was the hottest Power Tour ever. Literally… It was the hottest Power Tour ever. But no matter how hot it was – I had the best time ever. And the heat, humidity and rain didn’t discourage thousands of other hard core hot rodders from coming out to play on … More Hot Rod Power Tour 2016
It’s amazing the difference a new set of tires can make. I used think that tires are tires. If I got a set of 245/50R17 in Brand X they’d feel the same as a set of 245/50R17 in Brand Y, right?? I mean, with the exception of the really high performance tires, I kinda thought … More Angeles Forest Highway
I’ll never forget my first trip to The Nethercutt museum. It March 3rd 2012. The day Grumpy died. I was invited to go to The Nethercutt by Ken Ladka, the President of The Motion Picture Car Club.
