 A businessman is having dinner in an exclusive restaurant, at the next table is a drop dead gorgeous redhead. He wants to say something to her but he's nervous & shy.

Suddenly she sneezes & her glass eye flies out. Without even thinking he reaches out & grabs it. He returns it & the young lady is extremely embarrased & runs to the restroom to rectify the problem.

Upon returning she tells him that it's never happened before & could she buy him dinner.

He has the waiter take his things to her table & they start talking about their lives & their futures & become very friendly. While sipping their brandy she asks if he'd like to come over to her place for a nightcap & maybe breakfast.

Next morning while she's fixing him an omelet.
He asks "last night was wonderful dinner & everything, do you do this sort of thing often"

"No this is the first time, but, You caught My eye".  




The The Salvador Dalí of automotive art, Randy Grubb turns his incredible fantasies into hard, metal-warped reality in his Southern Oregon garage.

From mind to metal, Randy Grubb produced the classics: the B-702, the Indy Special, Jay Leno's Tank Car, Piss'd Off Pete, the Decoliner, the Decopods, and is about to debut the Decoson. 
Episode 2 of Randy Grubb's Garage is out!

It's jam-packed with automotive art and gearhead adventures. Click the link below to see it on YouTube.

First up, Randy reveals the plan for building "Frogman" Tim Cotterill's Rocket 3, the fantastic follow-up to Tim's 200 mph Rocket 2 super trike. Then Randy debuts the Decoson, his first streamlined sculpture based on a 1984 Harley-Davidson Sportster chassis, in downtown Grants Pass, Oregon. Back at the workbench, Randy gives a metal fabricator's lesson in metal joining and riveting. Then Randy makes his last journey in the Art Deco Decoliner from Southern Oregon to the Monterey Bay Peninsula in California for The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, the premier motorcycle show on the West Coast.  
Randy won two major awards on May 4th at Quail. He took 2nd in the Custom/Modified category for his Decoson, owned by Steve Boone of Northwest Harley-Davidson, Olympia, Washington. Then he captured the Innovation Award, presented by streamlining pioneer Craig Vetter, for his first Deco-Tripod, built on a Piaggio MP3 chassis and owned by Dave Johnston of American-Retro. Another crowd favorite was his very first Deco-Helmet, a fantastic polished aluminum headgear styled to go with the Decoson.  
Warning: Viewing Randy Grubb's Garage may cause symptoms of delirium in motorheads.

2013 L.A.


Year 2013 will be the 49th time the Los Angeles Roadsters Car Club has produced its world-renowned show and the 34th year it will be held at the Fairplex in Pomona, California. The show will be held on Father's Day Weekend, Saturday, June 15th and Sunday, June 16th 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 2013 and will fire up on Saturday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm in the Specialty Parking area.

'Voodoo Priest' a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr restyled by Rick Dore and his crew at RD Kustoms, for Metallica frontman and Beatniks member James Hetfield of Downey, California. To get hold of a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr is not a easy task. The car once belonged to a fellow in Sacramento which was serving as a soldier in Vietnam. When he returned home in 1972, he literally hopped a train, and was never seen or heard from again. The car rested in his mother's driveway for the next several decades, where it has sat since the late 1960's, until James bought it.

Antioch Muffler was responsible for the chassis work and exhaust. A Mustang II independent front suspension and a Ford 9" rear end was installed along with a RideTech airbag setups and dual exhaust.[1]

Keith Dean, Dick Dean's son lowered the deck lid, reworked the rockers, molded in rear quarter panels from a 1938 Lincoln, leaned the rear edge of the doors forward, added the custom-made taillights, leaned the headlights back, and integrated a canted 1953 Kaiser overrider to the rear.

The stock lower body trim was discarded, and a new set trim was handmade from brass stock. Final preparations on the bodywork and paint was done by Darryl Hollenbeck up at his studio in Concord, California. The Candy Apple was laid over raspberry to achieve that nice deep red. The chrome was done by Sherm's Plating.

A little bit about Surf City Garge by Tim Miller:


Step into Surf City Garage and you are transported back in time. There before you is a Flying A gas station, just like it was in the 50s. A '68 Shelby GT-500 sits at the pumps.  


You walk through the Shelby Showroom past a 22-foot-long neon Buick dealership sign and head toward Corvette Corner. In front of you is a red and white '58 Corvette, the first car I ever restored. Just to your left is my wife's '54 Polo White Corvette. Straight ahead an original Chevrolet Super Service sign signals your entry onto Chevrolet Way, where you're greeted by a '66 turquoise and white Bel Air hardtop. Next, you reach MOPAR Alley on your right, flanked by Pontiac Row on your left.  


On the wall is a huge neon Pontiac dealership sign. Looking down, you see a '67 Cameo Ivory GTO Coupe. You're now at the other end of our garage and you enter a complete restoration shop. Here expert craftsmen maintain our collection and restore new acquisitions. Professional detailers clean and wax over a mile of 60's chrome. When you have over 100 vintage muscle cars, the work never stops.

So where did Surf City Garage detailing products come from? Well, to keep the cars looking great, we tried every car care product around, but I just wasn't satisfied with the quality or performance. So we developed our own complete line of Enthusiast Grade® detailing products -- recognized around the world as the best anyone can buy. Our guarantee: if these aren't the best products you've ever used, give me a call and I'll personally buy them back - is unmatched in the industry.  


That's why, every day, more and more enthusiasts are switching to Surf City Garage Enthusiast Grade® - because nothing else even comes close.

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.

This is about a very old steam powered wood box factory that makes quality wooden boxes.  You may have to move your cursor about on the picture to make it play all the way though, but it is fun. I bet this would be a typical factory in the mid 1800's.

Please enjoy...very interesting.

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.'

'Oh, I understand,' said the visitor. 'A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.'

'No.' said the Director, 'A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?'



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.

(Kathy and her husband Jeff have a clone of the
black 1955 Chevy and they also produce the
Zoom Zoom Woof Woof Car Shows.)

A note from Kathy Zastrow.

I am sure you all heard that Jeff was asked to bring his 1955 Chevy American Graffiti movie car to the 40th anniversary car show in Petaluma.  They had originals or clones of all the major movie cars and a film crew and actors to re-enact scenes from the movie. 

At 3:00 a.m. on Monday they closed Frates Road and re-enacted the race scene.  On Tuesday at midnight, they closed Petaluma Blvd and re-enacted the cruise and race scene.  On the last race, Jeff's engine blew.  The rest of the week he had to trailer it and push it into the displays. 

Jeff still had an awesome time but was upset at the thought of having to rebuild or replace the engine.  But on Saturday at the show, he won the raffle for a new motor that will replace the one that blew up.  It really turned out to be a great week for Jeff.

American Graffiti: Drag Race Scene Recreation
(Courtesy ELEVATE)

Here are some shots of the recreation of the drag race scene from American Graffiti. Elevate was shooting for the upcoming 40th anniversary of the film - organized by Cruisin' The Boulevard Inc.

Elevate shot the recreation scene over two nights and two original filming locations in Petaluma, CA.

1. Frates Rd (Paradise Road in the film)

2. Petaluma Boulevard

The film starred Harrison Ford, Paul LeMat, Candy Clark, Mackenzie Philips, Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard. It was filmed locally in Petaluma, CA many years ago, and many of the film locations look amazingly similar to the original look of the film!

For a guy who's famously taciturn, Kent Fuller is one of the most powerful thinkers in the world of drag racing and land speed competition. He built his first dragster in 1956, and soon revolutionized that category by pioneering the horizontal-loop three-point roll bar, which obsoleted the earlier "skidbar" configuration favored by the likes of Scotty Fenn. That started a journey that led Fuller to a collaboration with Tommy Ivo, the discovery of Don Prudhomme, and his chassis as the basis for the most dominant Top Fuel dragster in history, the Greer-Black-Prudhomme dragster.

Since then, Fuller went on to design the radical Magicar dragster of 1963, a frame-within-a-frame innovation that allowed the driveline to be suspended. Later, he went into business building Volkswagen-based replica hot rods.

At 79, he's still at it. Fuller's last stand, assisted by 14-year-old grandson Greg, is to build a new Bonneville streamliner with an even newer method of financing it: Fuller is using social media to fund the car via Kickstarter, an online funding platform that has seen more than 3.9 million people pledge more than $591 million, funding more than 40,000 creative projects ranging from books and film to technology, since its launch in 2009. The practice is known as crowdfunding, and Kickerstarter says Fuller's LSR project will be the world's first crowdfunded competition vehicle.

Spec-wise, the Fuller car is a radical monocoque streamliner, designed so the pilot, ex-Indy Lights driver Andy Davis, will have to lie flat, his only view of the course coming via the mirrors on a periscope. Using an unblown flathead on nitro, the team aims to topple the current SCTA XF/FS record at 280 MPH and change.

The Museum catered to nearly 500 guests to enjoy delicious food provided by taste of Tuscany, live music by Northern Lights, a few words from staff and Museum board members and 'almost' a word from Sharon Gardner who was presented with a special award.

This event was a unique way for visitors to enjoy the Museum at the cost of just $10 per person.

This has been around for a while but
Dont Fall For Jury Duty Scams

The phone rings, you pick it up, and the caller identifies himself as an officer of the court. He says you failed to report for jury duty and that a warrant is out for your arrest. You say you never received a notice. To clear it up, the caller says he'll need some information for "verification purposes"-your birth date, social security number, maybe even a credit card number.

This is when you should hang up the phone. It's a scam.

Jury scams have been around for years, but have seen a resurgence in recent months. Communities in more than a dozen states have issued public warnings about cold calls from people claiming to be court officials seeking personal information. As a rule, court officers never ask for confidential information over the phone; they generally correspond with prospective jurors via mail.

The scam's bold simplicity may be what makes it so effective. Facing the unexpected threat of arrest, victims are caught off guard and may be quick to part with some information to defuse the situation.

"They get you scared first," says a special agent in the Minneapolis field office who has heard the complaints. "They get people saying, 'Oh my gosh! I'm not a criminal. What's going on?'" That's when the scammer dangles a solution-a fine, payable by credit card, that will clear up the problem.

With enough information, scammers can assume your identity and empty your bank accounts.

By Nadeem Muaddi,

Thanks to a regular appearance on Discovery Channel's hit TV show Fast N' Loud, Yu-Lan Haiso Martin - known the world over as "Sue" - has become the most recognizable figure in auto upholstery.

Fans of the show tune in each week to revel in her witty humor and relentless bashing of costars Richard and Aaron of Gas Monkey Garage. However, it's not just her charismatic personality that keeps viewers coming back for more. Sue is, in fact, a talented trimmer who always manages to breathe new life into the "junk" interiors that customers bring her.

Of course, Sue's success cannot be simply attributed to a television show. On the contrary, she has earned her stripes the old fashioned way: hard work.

Sue founded her shop, ASM Auto Upholstery, 23 years ago after immigrating to the United States from Taiwan and teaching herself the craft. Since then, she has worked day and night - sometimes even sleeping in her garage - to build a strong reputation for quality and dependability.

Sue's hard work has certainly paid off. Today, she operates a busy nine-person auto upholstery shop in Dallas, TX; stars in a hit reality TV show about the auto restoration industry; and is revered by peers and car enthusiasts alike. As her website states, "Sue is an example of the true American dream."

CLICK below on 'The Hog Ring' to read the interview with Sue of Fast N' Loud and ASM Auto Upholstery for the sixth installment of the "10 Questions" series.

One of the questions asked:

3. Your catch phrase on Fast N' Loud is:
"Why you always bring me junk?"

Do Richard and Aaron of Gas Monkey Garage really always bring you junk?
