Metallica Through the Never:
An IMAX 3D Experience

Release Date: September 27, 2013. Rated: R.

Metallica Through the Never stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history.

In this music driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica's most iconic songs -- created exclusively for film -- combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band's trailblazing iconography.

Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.

The IMAX release of Metallica Through the Never will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Article courtesty Rob Fortier, Rod & Custom Magazine


Back when Rick Dore first teamed up with Metallica front man James Hetfield on their first build, the resulting finished product, a dream car-inspired '53 Buick Skylark, wasn't the only thing on their minds. Seems James was looking a bit further down the road, like six years and nearly as many collaborated customs (Rick Dore Kustoms, that is).

According to Rick, the two were at Pomona (Grand National Roadster Show), where they were debuting the car James' daughter dubbed "Skyscraper", when out of the blue, James brought up Lincoln Zephyrs. The pair compared fellow Beatnik club members' versions with others-most of which were drivers-and also with Terry Cook's 'glass-bodied sled, "Scrape". Rick says that he was pretty sure he knew what James was getting at, but he didn't just want to come out and say it. But it wasn't long before he had no other choice but to ask, "So what are we talking about here?  


You want to build your version of a Zephyr or keep dreaming about it?" With the talent-blessed ability to do so, eventually they would fulfill that dream-but there were some other things that needed tending first ... a Candy Root Beer Auburn custom, for one......

Real Hot Rod Girl
                      by Randy Johnson

Bonnie Honea is a hot rodder in Southern Oregon
who works as a bookkeeper and property manager, picks up her two kids from school, and goes grocery shopping-all in the cool  '37 Plymouth rat truck that she designed, helped build, and uses as her daily driver.

She isn't the blonde who drove the white '55 T-Bird in the 1956 movie Hot Rod Girl (starring Lori Nelson and Chuck Connors). And she definitely isn't one of the scantily clad models draped over the flashy hot rods and motorcycles in today's slick magazines.

Nope, she's the real thing: a bright, contemporary woman who loves hot rods and isn't afraid of a little bit of grease.

Starring Bonnie Honea as herself, her husband Dale, and her father-in-law J.R. Shot on location in Rogue River and Gold Hill, Oregon, on Interstate 5, and at Del Rio Vineyards.

Randy Grubb Sells His DECOLINER!

Automotive artist Randy Grubb turns his incredible fantasies into hard, metal-warped reality in his Grants Pass garage in Southern Oregon. His large-scale iconic builds include Jay Leno's Tank Car, the Indy Special, the B-702, Piss'd Off Pete, and most recently, the Decoliner.

The Decoliner is an extreme build, designed by Randy to appear to be a 1940s period sculpture that could have been Flash Gordon's motor home. Built on a 1973 GMC RV chassis with an Olds 455 engine, it features the nose of a White 3000 COE truck cab and a flying bridge with a second driving station up top.

In episode 3 of Randy Grubb's Garage series you'll see the complete story of the Decoliner, inside and out, and on the road. 


Randy got an offer on the Decoliner in July 2013 that he couldn't refuse, so took his buddies with him on the vehicle's final shakedown voyage to Sequoia National Park in California. After passing its final tests on mountain roads with flying colors, Randy turned over the keys to the Decoliner's new owner in Michigan. Look for it at car shows and on the highway!

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.

Poteet's '34 Ford Nails Hot Rod
of the Year Award

(Click to view the article courtesy Goodguys News)

Indianapolis, IN - It's been quite a summer for Memphis-based hot rodder George Poteet. For the second time this season, a car from his stable has grabbed a signature award from the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association.

George's "Hugger Orange" 1934 Ford, built by the talented Dave Lane of Fastlane Rod Shop, captured the Goodguys 2013 Tank's Hot Rod of the Year award at last weekend's 3rd Speedway Nationals held on the hallowed grounds of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Earlier this summer, Poteet's '69 Torino drove off with the Goodguys 2013 Optima Batteries Street Machine of the Year award in Columbus, Ohio. Sandwiched between the two big wins was a trip to race at the Bonneville Salt Flats in August where he raced to the fastest speed in the SCTA record books - an eye popping 437.183mph behind the wheel of the Poteet & Main streamliner. Through it all Poteet remained humble and grateful, a true Southern gentleman.
Unlike any other Goodguys award, the Tank's Hot Rod of the Year competition is demanding. The car's agility, road worthiness and performance is factored in as well as looks and build quality. All contestants must take a 100-mile drive around Indianapolis as well as blast down a drag strip (Muncie Dragway in this instance) doing a smoky burnout and racing to the 1/8th mile as fast as possible.

CLICK on the photo above for the complete article.




Pleasanton, CA - Goodguys is happy to announce a special new Texas Road Tour this fall that will take rodders from Goodguys World Headquarters in Pleasanton, California to the 21st Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway. The Goodguys Texas Road Tour blasts off from Pleasanton, CA Friday, September 27th and lands at Texas Motor Speedway Thursday, October 3rd covering 1,969 total miles. The newly built, all yellow, 525-horsepower Goodguys G/RS 1969 Camaro will pace the tour.

The all-inclusive 7-day road tour travels through California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas stopping at the Southwest's finest rod shops, car collections, museums, race shops and more.

 AMERICAN RESTORATION on the History Channel features Rick Dale and his crew of loose screws at Rick´s Restorations in Las Vegas, Nevada, as they take rusty, beat-up items and restore them to their original glory.  


Whether it´s a giant gas pump from the 1940s or a Hopalong Cassidy bicycle from the 1950s, every restoration is a high-stakes business project where worthless rust is transformed into a valuable collectible. However, these restorations aren´t easy. Every project presents unique challenges for Rick and his team.


 When it comes to restoration, Rick Dale is the Pawn Stars go-to guy. AMERICAN RESTORATION follows Rick's work as owner of Las Vegas-based Rick's Restorations, a family business that finds, restores and up-cycles cool objects ranging from Cadillacs to Coke Machines.


 Rick's very nice Ford F-1 Pickup can be spotted on various episodes of American Restoration.

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.

The 1916 Maxwell From The Jack Benny  

TV Show Is In Our Lobby


1916 Maxwell from the television series.

The Jack Benny Program, starring Jack Benny, was a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy. 1950 thru 1965.

Jack Benny was a regular on his own radio program since 1932. He brought the program, with his underplayed humor, to TV along with his radio regulars. Jack, who remained 39-years-old, kept his money in his basement and drove his old Maxwell car just as he had done on the radio.

Todays Joke: Heavens Clerk

All arrivals in heaven have to go through a bureaucratic examination to determine whether admission will be granted. One room has a clerk who inputs computerized records of what each applicant did on his or her last day of life.

The first applicant of the day explained that his last day was not a good one. "I came home early and found my wife lying naked in bed. She claimed she had just gotten out of the shower. Her hair was dry, so I checked the shower and it was completely dry too. I knew she was into some hanky-panky, and I began to look for her lover.

I went onto the balcony of our 9th floor apartment and found the guy clinging to the rail by his finger tips. I was so angry that I began bashing his fingers with a flower pot. He let go and fell, but his fall was broken by some awnings and bushes.

On seeing he was still alive I found super human strength to drag our antique cedar chest to the balcony and threw it over. It hit the man and killed him. At this point the stress got to me, and I suffered a massive heart attack and died."

The clerk thanked him and sent him on to the next office.

The second applicant said that his last day was his worst.
"I was on the roof of an apartment building working on the AC equipment. I stumbled over my tools and toppled off the building. I managed to grab onto the balcony rail of a 9th floor apartment, but some idiot came rushing out on the balcony and bashed my hands with a flower pot.

I fell but hit some awnings and bushes and survived,
but as I looked up I saw a huge chest falling toward me. I tried to crawl out of the way but failed and was hit and killed by the chest."

The clerk couldn't help but chuckle as he directed the man to the next room. He was still giggling when his third customer of the day entered.

He apologized and said, "I doubt that your last day was as
interesting as the fellow in here just before you."

"I don't know," replied the man, "picture this, I'm buck naked hiding in this cedar chest.....

Lucas Oil Products is a manufacturer and distributor of automotive oil, additives, and lubricants. It was founded by trucker Forrest Lucas and his wife Charlotte in 1989.

FORTUNE -- Forrest Lucas, 70, is widely known for his sponsorship of the Indianapolis Colts' Lucas Oil Stadium (home of the 2012 Super Bowl).

But few fans know of his journey from long-haul trucker to oil-products producer to race team sponsor. In 1989 he launched Lucas Oil Products, which now sells nearly 200 items in 27 countries. Though Lucas won't reveal his private company's sales or profits, revenue is reportedly around $150 million. He recently sat down with Fortune to share his story.

Home was Columbus, Ind., and both sides of the family were farmers. By the time I was 13, I was showing registered cattle in professional breeder shows. But I always had a fascination for trucks. I'd help my dad with logging, or we'd use a truck when he worked as a mason. Dad had a drinking problem for several years, and I left home when I was 15. I started working for a guy who had a small cattle ranch until I got married at 17.

In 1964, I was 21 when I bought my first semi. It was a 1963 Chevrolet with a 327-cubic-inch gas engine. I started working for Mayflower Moving & Storage, making $13,000 to $14,000 a year, which was a lot of money then.

Gas was 25¢ a gallon, and I didn't waste any money. I drove day and night, and ate cheap.

Boyd's Coffee is one of the oldest family-owned coffee companies in the world. Founded in 1900 in Portland, Oregon, Boyd's has a long, storied history of helping restaurants, hotels and convenience stores attract and keep customers by providing them with consistently excellent coffee, tea and other beverages.

At Boyd's, we don't believe that coffee bestows status or makes a statement about the person who drinks it. We believe that people are capable of making their own statements. We hold that coffee is fuel, not fashion. It is what it has always been: a reward for good work, done well; and a kick in the pants to get back out there and do some more.

That's the legacy of coffee in America and that's the Boyd's legacy, as well.

Sacramento Vintage proudly serves Boyds coffee in
our little diner....... The Chrome Grille.
