-King Of Kustoms-
Rick Dore - Builder of the Year
Congratulations to the 2012 Sacramento Autorama Builder of the Year Award Winner,
Rick Dore, Carlsbad, California.
Rick Dore has over 20 years of creative experience as a custom car builder and automotive stylist. Since his debut on the custom car scene in the early 90's, his work has earned him worldwide honors, awards and recognition. His cars have been featured in hundreds of international publications and have earned him a place in several automotive halls of fame; his vehicles continue to take home top honors.
1937 Zephyr - 'Voodoo Priest'
Born in New York, Rick had a passion for all things automotive from a very early age. Influenced by the classic coachbuilders like Figoni & Falaschi, America's pioneering customizers, and the amazing concept vehicles dreamed up in that era, Rick has created an unmistakable style of his own. His early career was spent in Arizona, where he styled and built a large collection of top award-winning custom cars.
1953 Buick Skylark - 'Skyscraper'
Rick and his custom car business, now both residing in California, continue to produce one-of-a-kind dream cars for the most discerning clients. Rick specializes in conceptual styling to completed vehicle transformations from start to finish, all of which takes place under his meticulous supervision.

MODEL 'A' FORD BRAKE SHOES
Brand New - All New
All NEW - No Exchange is required!
These BRAND NEW shoes are for the 1928-1931 Model A Fords with the original mechanical brakes. Available in bare metal for you to reline or complete assembly painted with woven and riveted linings ready to install. Sold in sets of 2 for one wheel.
The lined shoes have the Scandinavian lining as originally used. Containing soft woven fibers, with brass wire interwoven throughout, lining is 3/16" thick. Utilizing the original Ford drawing and design of the Model A brake shoes, they have been re-engineered and fully upgraded using today's modern technology, manufacturing process and materials to deliver optimum performance.
Since changes and improvements had been made by Ford both during and after Model A production ended, the latest revision of the Ford drawing and specifications were found and followed for tooling and manufacturing. The manufacturer is ISO-9000 certified, ensuring that strict quality control standards are followed during production.
The material for the new Model A brake shoes was upgraded to SAE-1045 carbon steel, which is currently used on 2011 vehicles. This upgrade will greatly increase the overall strength of the shoe while reducing the wear of the pin holes used for operation. Modern technology CNC machines are programmed to accurately form the outside diameter of the steel shoes so they conform to specification and match the inside diameter of the brake drum. Another type of CNC machine is programmed to drill and precision ream the two holes for the pins in the reinforced sections of the steel shoes, per the original specifications.
Instead of the rolling process Ford used to assemble the two sections of the shoe, a CNC robotic welding machine precisely makes 16 total spot welds (eight per side) for overall strength. These exact same manufacturing processes are used for today's economy, sport vehicles and trucks.
Sold in sets of 2 shoes for one wheel.

HOW TO TELL WHICH IS WHICH
RedTop: Use this for normal engine starting where an alternator immediately monitors the state of charge and provides energy to the battery whenever it is needed. This would describe most stock vehicles.
YellowTop: Use this when electrical loads are higher than average, or when the discharge cycle is more than typical engine starting, such as vehicles without alternators. This also includes vehicles with significant electrical loads that may exceed the average alternator output (for example aftermarket audio system, GPS, chargers, winch, snowplow, inverters, drag cars). This can also include vehicles that have a lot of electronics from the factory, such as a minivan with power sliding doors and a DVD player, especially if the DVD player is used when the engine isn't running.
BlueTop: The BlueTop starting battery (dark gray case) is to be used when a dedicated starting battery is required and it should never be used for cycling duty. The dual purpose BlueTop (light gray case) can be used for both starting and deep cycling; it is a true deep cycle battery with extremely high cranking power.
Trolling motors, marine applications with heavy electrical accessories and RVs should use a dual purpose BlueTop (which is both a starting and deep cycle battery)
Use a BlueTop starting battery for marine applications and RVs when the battery's only function is engine starting.
Note: The difference between BlueTop and YellowTop deep cycle batteries is that BlueTop batteries have both automotive (SAE) posts and threaded posts, while YellowTops (other than D31T) only have SAE posts.
If you ever get confused on the color tops just remember: if it has a dark gray case then it is a starting battery; if it has a light gray case then it is a deep cycle (dual purpose) battery.
BUGATTI VEYRON SUPER SPORT

This beast features a 16-cylinder engine with a total output of 1200 HP. With this amount of power, the Super Sport will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and will hit a top speed of 267 mph.

This is one absolutely amazing remote controlled model airplane.
Not only did they build its jet engines, but included a retractable landing gear, and built it into a fully scaled model of the SR-71 "Blackbird" that flies just like the real McCoy.
This SR-71 model was built by an Engineer / RC enthusiast in Germany, and is certainly one awesome toy.

Ireson Motorsports specializes in custom cars and restoration. Detail-orientated, quality craftsmanship and horsepower; provides mild to wild custom work. There is no project too big or small to repair and modify your classic car.
At Superchips, their engineering teams adjust all of the elements that affect vehicle power: air/fuel ratio, fuel injector flow rates and spark timing. They also tune shift characteristics of an automatic transmission for maximum acceleration and a high performance driving feel.
Thirty years ago, these results would have required rejetting a carburetor, reworking the spark advance on the distributor and installing a transmission shift-improvement kit.
Today, it's knowing how to read fuel and spark maps, knowing exactly where to push the limits and testing, testing, testing.

SAMMY'S BEACH BAR
The theme of the Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill restaurants is high-quality beach food and uninhibited fun, which immediately gave Sammy the idea to complement that vibe with a premium quality silver rum. Since Hagar owns a home and lives part of the year in Maui, HI - what better place to produce a world-class rum? The best sugar cane in the world comes from Hawaii - and the island is known for tropical drinks and the love of rum.
Sammy's luck was with him, as he happened to meet a local distiller making top quality vodka. After tasting the vodka for the better part of the afternoon, a friendship was developed. Sammy and the distiller would soon make a pact to produce the finest rum in the world using the pure cane sugar from Hawaii.
Now available in California, Nevada and all BevMo! stores. More states coming soon.

These Vintage Ford USA Made brake drums fit the 1940-1948 Ford cars and 1940-47 Pickups, Front or Rear For inside mount hubs with a 3-1/4" center, accepts original 12" x 1-3/4" brake shoes. Replaces the original Ford part #21A-1125. These drums also used on 1928-31 Model A & 1932-38 Hydraulic Brake Conversions.
CLICK above or check with your local early Ford parts supplier. Look for the VINTAGE cast into the drum.... Vintage Brake drums are made in the U.S.A.
Our Vintage brake drums use a modern hydraulic molding process which eliminates run-out between the inside and outside of the drum,
also creates a smoother, cleaner cast surface unlike hand packed molds that leave a rough, gritty finish.
Hydraulic clamping eliminates inconsistencies in drum thickness unlike older processes which do not allow the molds to close as tight. Castings are then machined using state of the art CNC equipment eliminating the need to add weights for balancing.

The Raybestos® brand is a name firmly rooted in a proud tradition of innovative product design and manufacturing excellence. The premier brand of replacement products since 1902, the Raybestos® brand name has changed the way people think about brake products and brake performance with continual innovations and dedication to quality. It all began with two young men, Arthur H. Raymond and Arthur F. Law, in a converted barn in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Raybestos® brand products have led the industry since the invention of woven brake lining in 1906.
Proud highlights include a crucial role in World War I and II, providing brake lining material by the mile for tanks and trucks and later heavy bombers, as well as ninety percent of aircraft supercharger drive system materials.
From the 30-minute brake band for the legendary Model "T" to today's highest quality complete line of brake products, the Raybestos® brand name is highly regarded for its record as the industry leader..

EDWARD TOWE PASSES
EDWARD TOWE (seated) and his daughter Kristy Updegraff and his son-in-law Jim Updegraff pose in front of a 1903 Ford during the second annual Founders' Day at the California Automobile Museum. The car is owned by longtime museum supporter Buck Kamphausen. Valley Community Newspapers photo, Lance Armstrong.
Edward Towe, a Montana banker, rancher, and entrepreneur, died March 13, 2012, 38 days before his 98th birthday, of natural causes at the home of his daughter in Sacramento, California.
Edward Towe was born in Norway, Iowa, on April 20, 1914. His mother and all 4 grandparents were born in Norway near the town of Tau inland from Stavanger, Norway. He was an entrepreneur throughout his life beginning from the time he became the town's only bicycle repairman with a bicycle shop in Paullina, Iowa when he was just 15 years old. Soon after that he started buying old model T Fords and making them into farm wagons.
Edward Towe worked his way through engineering school at Iowa State College in Ames. He married Florence Tow, daughter of a prominent Hereford breeder near Dysart, Iowa, in 1935. By then he had made several trips driving new Fords to California to sell at a profit. In 1937 he, along with a cousin, purchased the Ford dealership in Paullina, Iowa, which he ran for a year before moving to California where he bought a gas station and sold gas for 11.9 cents per gallon at a time when all gas was pumped by hand.
