Event Coverage: 2013 H.A.M.B.B.Q. Photos!

Due to a scheduling conflict I was not able to make the run part of the 2013 H.A.M.B.B.Q.  But  I was able to capture a few images of a couple of the cars and scenes available while waiting for the group to get to the final stop. Thanks again NoSurf and family for putting on a kool event and hosting us all!

Week in Review & A Look Ahead 4-20-13

It's been an interesting week  in U.S. history, the Boston Marathon Bombing, the fertilizer plant in West, TX and the the apprehension of the Boston Marathon bomber (and killing of his brother/fellow bomber). My heart goes out to the families and friends of all of those that suffered this week due to these two events.

On with the blog:

Without any further ado here is the Limited Edition Poster #2! Presale price is $10 shipped in the continental U.S. for anyone outside of that you have to contact me via this form for a special shipping arrangement. Pre-sale ends April 30th.

A Look Back At The KC Geargrinder

A few years ago I heard of a new show in the Kansas City area and I decided to head up to check it out. The Kansas City Geargrinder. It was a kool show at a great venue called Knuckleheads, which is a fantastic live music joint in KCMO.

I haven't been back to the show since due to weather and a conflicting schedule. I hope the show comes back and is bigger and better than ever. Here's a slideshow from that show, click on any of the photos to go to the full gallery.

For the last few years I've been attending a great small event called the H.A.M.B.B.Q. it's put on by a friend that happens to be on the H.A.M.B. if you don't know what that is, go over and have a look. It's the message board for the Jalopy Journal a site dedicated to traditional hot rods & kustoms.

Heading to the Lonestar Roundup!

The trip started off a bit weird. My Galaxie was at Chaotic Customs to get some TLC, so yesterday I needed a ride from home almost 2 hours south to my buddy Jack's house where I was crashing for the night. Once we arrived and unloaded all of my boxes of shirts, hats, posters, video camera, clothes...where's my camera bag? It's still on the couch at home. Damn.

I laughingly explained to Jack that I would get the car and drive home, get my camera & then begin my trip again, fully prepped. Jack told me "phooey!" (not an exact quote) "Take my truck and go get your bag." As he handed me the keys, I headed out the door, filled his truck up with gas and headed back north. 2:30am I was back at Jack's and heading to bed.

The next morning we went over to Chaotic and picked up my car.

The Domino Effect Pt. 2

In The Domino Effect Pt. 1 I explained the basic principle, what started as a simple upgrade with parts I'd already purchased became a much bigger project. It's gotten worse... and finally it's gotten better.

The brackets that I ordered up all came from CVF Racing. I did not get them as a kit, but individually.
