January 2013 Turlock Swapmeet

Remember the first time you touched a boob? That’s the feeling I get whenever the January Turlock swapmeet rolls around and this year was no different.

Better Late than Never! – Billetproof 2012 Car Show – Sep 29, 2012

I was awake before dawn and the cool fall morning air was crisp and sharpened the edges of your senses. The exhaust was burbling away on the jalopy roadster as the engine warmed up and the promise of an exciting day that filled me with excitement. This morning I was meeting up in Livermore on Vasco Road to caravan out to the show. Matto ‘Double Trucker’ Jamison showed up driving... 

Twelve Hours of Turlock Swapmeet

Twelve Hours of Turlock Swapmeet

The Big One… the January Turlock Swapmeet. I never miss this one. Pete wanted to leave early, like ass-crack of dawn early, which I was okay with. Some plans were struck and we met at Nations before the sun rose. We didn’t leave until after the sun set. Scored some great stuff and had a fun day hanging out with my Dad and friends!!  Read More →

Slant Six Club Bay Area 2011 Car Show

I found a Slant Six car show on Sunday that sounded like hoot, so I gathered up some friends and we too our six poppin’ Chryslers to Redwood City! Steve drove his 1964 Plymouth Valiant drop-top and I took my little daily grinder the 1967 Plymouth Valiant coupe. It was pretty quiet when we got there, but the cars kept rolling in until about 1:30 or so. This is an aluminum block...

Freakin’ out the Squares! Bombin’ the A-Bone down to Santa Maria 2011

It was one of those things you decide about a month out, “Hey, lets get the Model A put back together and take it to that Santa Maria Car Show!” I’d never been to this show, it was where the West Coast Kustoms show moved after the city of Asshole Robles kicked them out, and I figured it’d be a great destination for the model A. I’ve also always wanted to follow...
