Nose job

The front end is starting to take shape, but don't get too used to the stock grille...

Garage Days Spring Swap Meet approaching

The Garage Days Spring Swap Meet is fast approaching. Need a Stromberg? Or a '40 Ford hood? Or that rare Man a Fre manifold? That's the kind of stuff people bring. Hot Rodders helping Hot Rodders. And not a Camaro in sight.

King of Cool

Long before there was Lexus, and when guys remembered the war machines that companies like Mercedes and BMW made, there was only 1 car to show the world that you had made it. The Cadillac. And in red... there's no denying that you're a big time operator... the king of cool.

A Deuce?

I suppose in the most general sense, this 1932 Plymouth PB coupe is a "deuce" because well... it's a '32. But that cheapens it. This car is much more than any typical '32 Ford. The PB model was made for 6 very short depression era months. When was the last time you saw a real PB coupe? In fact, we only know of about 3 other PB hot rods (one is a roadster) in the whole country. There are probably more, but they are safely squirreled away from the likes of "butcher hot rodders" like us. So this summer, when you see this black beauty out at a cruise night or car show... study her. Take in her nuances beyond what a stock PB would feature (there are lots!). Just don't call her a "deuce".

'55 F100 Marauder

The '55 F-100 Marauder project is nearing completion, and she is looking sharp! We can't wait for her to turn her first wheel in anger. When was the last time you saw an F-100 with anything other than a sbc or a sbf? Yeah, us either.

We miss you Oldsmobile

Who knew that now with Oldsmobile gone, that what was left would make such good hot rodding material? Should we feel bad about depriving an Olds from the heart and soul of it's once glorious interior? Nah, not when the results look like this!
