Roadsters Rule

I love Chris' roadster! Some pictures he took up in the Spokane, WA area. I thought they were super worthy of black and white...



Littleboy on the salt

Despite this being one of the weirdest Hemi powered Model A coupes I've ever seen, I still have some serious respect for this car. WOW! Everyone should have a Nitro fueled Hemi in a Model A coupe, right?

The Golden Submarine LIVES!

Dan Webb's version of the Miller Golden Sub, has to be the most amazing build I've ever seen! The attention to detail is incredible! The workmanship is impecable! But now it makes noise too! Gonna' be a screamer for sure!

Check it out in issue #45 of The Rodders Journal. Amazing...

All these pictures are just killing me! I agree with the photographer... words cannot describe this... This picture was taken by Jay D. Sweet. Stunning shot! This is how I would imagine heaven.

Go to Church, or ELSE!

King of Holley 94's - Dave Lohr

Do you really like early Ford, Holley 94 carburetters like I do? If so, check out what Dave Lohr (aka Littleman) is up to lately with his Holley's! He's polished and machined them wide open to get more performance out of them. Brilliant and beautiful! Can't wait to see what these things look like done!

(pictures from Dave's website)









Check out his website where you will find progress on his "next generation" Holly 94's, as well as what's new on his end.

Jimmy Mack's Drag Star

Weiand Drag Stars are one of the coolest manifolds ever to come along for the early Chrysler Hemis. Love these things! They can be run with six Strombergs or six early series Holley 94's (later ECG and similar have a larger body).

Here's your chance to own one of the cleanest ones I've ever seen! Manifold belongs to Jimmy McElreath. It will fit the 331, 354, and 392 Chrysler Hemis.

If interested shoot him an email or give him a call. He's asking $1100 OBO.

This one is pretty amusing too! HAHA! "The Choppers" Now you know where your wheels went in 1961 when you broke down on the side of the road! HAHA!

This is a long video! Over an hour! Get comfortable! It's worth it though...
