Garage Art, What Do You Have?

Garage Art, What Do You Have?

It seems that the term “Man Cave” has been defined by so many examples it can mean almost anything these days. To a car guy it can range from a large beautiful show room full of cars and big screen TV/sound system to a full on machine shop with lifts and all kinds of cool […]

NASCAR History; Grand National Series, Part 3

NASCAR History; Grand National Series, Part 2

When did aerodynamics first come into play in Nascar? Most of us would say 1968 or 1969 with the birth of Ford, Mercury and Dodge Aero Cars. Well, most of us would be wrong. This second video in our three part series takes you back to the years leading up to 1959. During this time it […]

Cheetah Sports Racer

Cheetah Sports Racer

At the 2016 Road Atlanta Walter Mitty Historic Races I saw a number of cars that brought back fond memories of the Trans Am, Can Am and sports car racing of the 1970’s. It is hard for race fans of today to believe that back then the Trans Am and Can Am SCCA racing series […]

Snake & Mongoose DVD

Snake & Mongoose DVD

  Being a car guy I have always liked any car movie that would come along. Heck, when I was a kid I used to watch the old Route 66 TV show just to get an occasional glimpse of the Corvette. Of course when they announced the new feature film Snake & Mongoose I was […]

Le Mans 24 Hour win by Ford

In 1966, 1967, 1968, and 1969 Ford dominated Le Mans. Listen to how they did it and what it means for Ford in 2013. You will also hear from Dan Gurney. Remember Dan started the spraying of Champaign at his Le Mans win. No one had done it previously, now it is standard procedure. If […]

Riverside CA Motor Trend 500

Riverside CA Motor Trend 500

My favorite race track remains the Riverside Road Course in Riverside CA. It no longer exists thanks to some stupid politicians and greedy developers. That may be a little harsh in that everyone is entitled to do what they want with their own property but the loss of Riverside Raceway was tragic. I have attended […]

Hot Wheels Match Race Haulers

Hot Wheels Match Race Haulers

Back in the early 1970s Drag Racing was really catching on and star Match Races were a big draw. Every kid, like many today, wanted Hot Wheels. What better way to promote a product than to blend the real with the toy? This 1967 D-700 has a remarkable place in racing history. It first began […]

So you think the King, Richard Petty, was only a 200 time winner in NASCAR? Well, there was a time when he and NASCAR had a falling out and he went drag racing. It didn’t last long and he certainly didn’t leave with a record like he had at the circle tracks but here is […]

Ford, Built on Racing

Ford, Built on Racing

Today’s NASCAR race cars are far from being stock although in 2013 they will be closer in appearance. In the early 1900s auto racing was quite a bit different than today. “Stock cars” were hardly likely to be a good race car but success on the track could sell cars, just like today. Henry Ford built his company […]
