When was the last time you saw a Spitfire in a hot rod? Never? Until now.

Sycamore Car Show

Back Seat Betty Playboy Centerfold

Here's a pic from the Mopars at the Playboy Mansion, with none other than Back Seat Betty. We're guessing she was probably the most naughty girl there.

Shoebox Mags

Here's an older pic of Shoebox Mags in my coupe, circa '06, in her pre-Miss Hop Up days. These days, you can catch her performing with The Honeybees.


Naturally we love WWII aircraft. Here is an Oxygen tank from a B-17 or a B-24 (they used the same tanks) patiently waiting to be used in a hot rod project. Until then, it looks cool hanging around. We've seen quite a few pop up lately converted after the war into portable air tanks for hot rods, or even as air compressors. Pretty neat.

Our Motor Monday photo this week is the venerable Rocket! This one resides in a '34 sedan that Rocket Ryan is building... naturally.

Eyes On Design in Detroit

We took the "Black Pearl" F-100 to the prestigious Eyes On Design show at the Edsel Ford Estate. The show is invite only, and the cars on display are always fantastic. So we were stoked to get our 3rd invite to this show. And what happened to park next to us? A '55 T-bird custom built in '55! Wow!!
