Artist Dave Bell Passes



Hot rod artist Dave Bell whose humorous black & white cartoon's filled the pages of industry magazines and posters for decades has passed away. Bell's unique style was revered by hot rodders and motorcyclists worldwide. He had the unique ability to incorporate hot rodding's colorful characters, their cars and the latest trends into his art.

He contributed a monthly cartoon/column called "Henry Hirise" to STREET RODDER MAGAZINE among others, leaving readers eager to see what he'd draw and talk about next. He worked on numerous projects for Goodguys over the years and was a great fan of the late Goodguy Bill Burnham.


Bell suffered a heart attack on April 18th and while in the hospital was diagnosed with brain cancer. "Dave was an integral part of our industry and STREET RODDER magazine since its inception," said SRM editor Brian Brennan. "He never missed a deadline in all those years. He was a great guy, had a great personality and an incredible talent that made STREET RODDER better. We will miss a good friend of 40 years..."


(Above photo and article courtesy Goodguys News) 


The art shown above is one that Dave Bell had created for us back in the 80's. One of our most popular shirts and we still offer them!

 Norm Grabowski and the Kookie Car. 


 This was the most recent one that Dave had done for us that was also in Street Rodder Magazine.  This one featured the California Kid 1934 Coupe, Jake's Coupe and the John LaBelle Kookie Car. We were honored to have these cars on display in our showroom. Actually..... we still have the Kookie Car on display!


Darold took this photo of Dave during the 2010 L.A. Roadster Show.

Rest In Peace Dave.....You will be missed.

 Thank You Pepsi Beverages Company, Sacramento,
for your continuous support of our
Make-A-Wish efforts.  










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.

Matthew Gray Gubler and Candy Clark

Matthew plays Dr. Spencer Reid on 'Criminal Minds'. Sandy Jareau is played by Candy.    


Oscar nominee Candy Clark - who earned a nomination in 1973 for her role in American Graffiti - will guest star on the Criminal Minds season 7 finale as JJ's mom,
according to TV Guide sources.
The character will be named Sandy Jareau.

Criminal Minds Season 7 finale guest star - A.J.'s Mom!
As if the Criminal Minds Season 7 finale wasn't big enough as it is, the show is bringing in Oscar-nominated actress Candy Clark to portray the mother of JJ (A.J. Cook). The finale as it is is already jam packed with everything you could ask a series to include in a single episode, so the addition of JJ's dear old mother seems almost like overkill. Make no mistake; this isn't a happy family reunion. There is some serious drama attached to Clark's appearance as Sandy Jareau. Unfortunately, we haven't been told what that is! So now we're left to our own imagination as to why the elder Jareau is hanging around.

Matthew Gray Gubler as Dr. Spencer Reid    

As stated above and confirmed by TV Guide, Clark will appear in the Season 7 finale, which will be a two-hour long event, making it a little bit easier to cram all the intensity planned into the episode. What possible reason could there be for a visit from JJ's mom? I think the answer may lie in some of the other events happening in the finale. The biggest event to note is the robbery of a federal bank that quickly turns into a hostage situation. Complicating matters, a BAU member is among the hostages. Could JJ be the BAU member held captive? This crazy, two-hour finale airs Wednesday, May 16th.
Get ready to meet a Criminal Minds mother. 


Sweet little Candy Clark as 'Debbie' in American Graffiti. Could she be a mean evil Mother in Criminal Minds?

   Year 2012 will be the 48th time the Los Angeles Roadsters Car Club has produced its world-renowned show and the 33rd year it will be held at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.  


The show will be held on Father's Day Weekend, Saturday, June 16th and Sunday, June 17th for your enjoyment.

This year's show will be new and exciting. The show will have a new look and be located in the beautiful inner fairgrounds and in Exhibitor Building #4.

There's something for everyone at the L.A. Roadster Show. Late model enthusiasts will find the swappers and manufacturers with many of the parts they are looking for, while early car parts will be in abundance for the fellows who are restoring antiques or building that special new car. Come and see the West Coast's largest trade show, where over 200 manufacturers and vendors of reproduction hot rod parts and accessories will display their products and services. They will have their own special section outside, and in Exhibitor Building #4.

By popular demand the Cacklefest is returning in 2012 and will fire up on Saturday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm in the Specialty Parking area.

The Citrus Inn opened in 1913 in this very building on Folsom Boulevard. Citrus was sold in front of the building to everyone that passed by on busy Folsom Boulevard.

Folsom Boulevard was a main thoroughfare for the gold rush in the mid 1800s. Many immigrants and forty-niners were in search of some of the gold that James W Marshall and John Sutter found in the American River. The railroads that are still visible across the street today were the same railroads that were constructed in the late 1800s.

Rumor has it that over the years The Citrus Inn became many different businesses, including The Edwards Hotel, and at one point, a brothel. Everyone came to the building to eat good food and to have a good time. There was drinking and dancing 'til late at night.

Later, the building became known as Sheepherder Inn. It was a place for Basque sheepherders to come and rest upstairs in the Inn and enjoy a hearty meal downstairs, which probably consisted of meats, fish, lamb stews, legumes, cheeses and Basque cider.

Industry Mourns Death of Automotive Legend Carroll Shelby   



(Article and Image courtesy Ashley Smissen, HotRod and Restoration Magazine.)

Motorsports industry icon Carroll Shelby died Thursday May 10th at a hospital in Dallas, Carroll Shelby International Inc. announced last Friday morning.

Shelby's career in the motorsports industry spanned over 50 years. The champion race car driver and racing team owner is probably best known as designer of the Shelby American Cobra and for founding Shelby American Inc., which manufactures and markets performance vehicles and related products. (The company later became a subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc.)

"I look forward every day to building cars, to being a part of the industry," Shelby told Hotrod & Restoration contributor Charles Phoenix in 2003. "I've been in it since its infancy. I'm 80 years old, and I'm just lucky to be here and be a part of it.

"The news of Shelby's death comes a few weeks after he cancelled an appearance at the New York International Auto Show, where he was set to debut the new 950-horsepower Shelby 1000 and 1,100-horsepower Shelby 1000 S/C. He later used his Facebook page to reassure his fans that he was in good health, and revealed that he had been suffering from a long bout of pneumonia.

No cause of death was released. He was 89.

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.

In 1983 California Sprint Car racers were experiencing 'excessive sound' issues at numerous race tracks and were told to quiet the cars down or lose racing privileges. All attempts to silence the race engines without sacrificing power repeatedly failed.

Enter Flowmaster founder, Ray Flugger, with over 45+ years of exhaust design experience, and while working out of a small 800 square foot barn in Kenwood, California, created Flowmaster's first patented design of racing silencers. Ray attached handles to ease carrying the square shaped race mufflers through the race pits, and the mufflers became known as the "suitcase muffler." Today, these innovative Flowmaster mufflers are the result of years of development with top race engine builders, thousands of hours of dyno research and "real-world" on-track testing

Flowmaster's product line includes exhaust products for Performance Street, Muscle Cars, Trucks, Street Rods, RV's, Motorhomes, and all types of race applications. With over 400 different muffler models, 370+ exhaust systems and numerous exhaust accessories available, Flowmaster offers you the choice of sound to fit your preference from "wild to mild" and your specific vehicle needs.




This season Sacramento Vintage will have a 'Mopar Pick' at each of the 4 Vintage Friday's shows this season. Any pre-1973 Mopar is eligible for the pick that has registered at the show.
