IMAX 3D Experience
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

A man stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he could buy him a drink.
"Why of course", comes the reply.
The first man then asks: "Where are you from?"
"I'm from Scotland", replies the second man.
The first man responds: "You don't say,
I'm from Scotland too!
Let's have another round to Scotland."
"Of Course", replies the second man.
Curious, the first man then asks:
"Where in Scotland are you from?"
"Aberdeen", comes the reply.
"I can't believe it", says the first man.
"I'm from Aberdeen too!
Let's have another drink to Aberdeen."
"Of course", replies the second man.
Curiosity again strikes and the first man asks:
"What school did you go to?"
"Saint Andrews", replies the second man.
"I graduated in '62."
"This is unbelievable!", the first man says.
"I went to Saint Andrews and graduated in '62, too!"
About that time in comes one of the regulars and sits down at the bar.
"What's been going on?", he asks the bartender
"Nothing much," replies the bartender.
"The MacClyde twins are drunk again."

Petersen Automotive Museum selling a third of its collection to fund new focus
When businessman and car collector Peter Mullin recently took the reins of the Petersen Automotive Museum, many saw a sea change in that museum's direction on the horizon. As the Los Angeles Times reported this week, that change has already begun to affect the very heart of the museum, namely the vehicles held within its collection, as about a third of the vehicles have been sold or put up for sale.
As the museum relies on both private and corporate benefactors for funding, the sale of a large portion of the Petersen's collection would likely trigger alarm bells. To date, sales have been discreetly handled by auction house Gooding & Company, which sold a dozen former Petersen vehicles for a reported $8.5 million at its Amelia Island auction. While a dozen vehicles out of a collection of more than 400 may be viewed as insignificant, another 107 vehicles from the Petersen collection are scheduled to cross the block next month at Auctions America's Burbank sale.
With these changes, the Petersen's new executive staff intends to "breathe some life into the museum," in the words of Executive Director Terry Karges.

CUSTOM CAR CHRONICLES
This online custom car magazine is created by an international team of custom car and hot rod enthusiasts. This initiative started in 2004 with the legendary Custom Car Photo Archive founded by the Editor in Chief, Custom Car historian Rik Hoving.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE UNSOLD
Article, link and photos courtesy Rik Hoving.
The auction was held on June 15, 2013. However the car did not meet its reserve and is not sold. It was estimated to bring: €80,000 - €100,000 ($124,208.00 - $155,260.00).
The Westergard Mercury was restored by a team of people put together by Custom Car enthusiast Jack Walker. Jack is also known for his Hirohata Merc clone. Jack sold the Mercury after its restoration to a Nevada Car Museum.
A few year later it was auctioned by the museum at the RM auctions Icons of Speed & Style were it was sold for $75,000.- plus 10% auction fees. The buyer had to pay $82,500.- for it. Not really the right price for an original Harry Westergard Custom. However the far from period perfect restoration and uneven candy apple finish might have to do with this.

SURF CITY GARAGE PRODUCTS
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
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.

WEST COAST NATIONALS - PLEASANTON
AUGUST 23-25, 2013

GARY MEADORS & SAM FOOSE TO SELECT GOODGUYS WEST COAST NATIONALS
BUILDER'S CHOICE AWARDS
Goodguys Founder and Chairman Gary Meadors (R) along with his friend Sam Foose (L) (Chip's dad) will join together to select the Builder's Choice awards at the Goodguys 27t West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster August 23-25 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds.
The special occasion reunites these two industry legends to hand pick the top ten cars at the event. Not an easy task at an event that draws the nation's finest '72 & earlier rods, customs, classics and muscle cars!
Meadors and Foose's friendship dates back to the 1970s when they met at what else - a rod run! In the 80s, Meadors had both Sam and Chip do a complete rebuild of his '32 Ford tudor which has served as the Goodguys logo car since Goodguys incorporated in 1987. In the early 90s, Sam and Chip teamed up yet again to design a '33 Ford roadster for Gary's wife Marilyn Meadors. They are both members of the Grand National Roadster Show Hall of Fame.
Meadors, who usually just gets to make one award pick per event (the Goodguys Pick), is excited for the opportunity. "Sam is hands down one of the finest metal men and visionaries in contemporary hot rod & custom design. His eye and his old world craftsmanship is second to none. Chip Foose will tell you the same thing. If I can hold up my end of the bargain, I think together we can pick some bitchin cars at the West Coast Nationals."
To have your car considered for a West Coast Nationals Builder's Choice selection, you must park in the Builder's Choice parking area (out on the west grass lot under the shade trees adjacent to the swap meet) Saturday 8/24 from 7am-Noon. Only ten cars will be selected!

SHEEPHERDER BAR AND GRILLE
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.

SPIELBERG'S 1971 FILM: 'DUEL'
While traveling through the desert for an appointment with a client, the businessman David Mann from California passes a slow and old tanker truck. The psychotic truck driver feels offended and chases David along the empty highway trying to kill him.
As the Mopar Blog pointed out this week, the entirety of the 1971 Made-For-TV (and later, theatrically released) film 'Duel'
is now on YouTube
According to Allpar at the Mopar Blog they used both 1971 and 1972 Valiants make the 1971 Spielberg film Duel
. In some scenes they even used Darts.
Fun fact: The 149PCE California blue plate that Mann's Valiant wears was incorrect for the early 1970s - California wouldn't issue plates with the PCE suffix until later in the 1970s, but it appears that the California DMV reserved PCE-suffix blue plates for use by Hollywood when the blue plates came out.

A young lady calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have this killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get it started".
Her boyfriend asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"
The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box,
it's a tiger."
Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle. She lets him in and shows him to where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.
He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says,
"First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger".
"Second, I'd advise you to relax. Let's have a cup of coffee, then put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box."

WHAT IS IT?
Rat Wax™ No Shine Car Soap and Rat Wax™ No Shine Detailer are the first products of their kind. They are designed specifically for rod & kustom cars with flat, matte, satin, and patina paint. Rat Wax™ No Shine cleans and protects in one easy step. While the product name implies that it's a "wax", it really isn't! After all, you can't "wax" these types of finishes. Rat Wax™ No Shine removes dirt, dust, water spots, grease, tar, fingerprints, grime, oil, fuel, & bird droppings from your car's unique finish. Rat Wax™ No Shine also leaves a clean natural look and an invisible layer of UV protection against the fade of the sun, rain, and other harsh elements. CLICK
