Sure, a nomination for an Oscar is one sign that you're pretty important and proof you've got acting skills but nothing acknowledges one's popularity and greatness more than to have a holiday named after them and that's just what's happened to Candy Clark!  I'm not kiddin'!  This year, the city of Fort Worth, Texas declared October 26th as Candy Clark Day in Cowtown.   


(Photo from Candy's Yearbook)          

The celebration marks a milestone in the life of one of Texas' beloved alumni within the Fort Worth Independent School District.   It was forty years ago that the former Green B. Trimble High School student was nominated for an Oscar at the Academy Awards for her role as Debbie in the beautiful nostalgic 1973 film, American Graffiti.  Since then, she has appeared in over 50 films, with her most recent movie credits being The Informant! (2009) and Bob's New Suit (2013).   

  The Texas town could not be more proud of Ms. Clark's accomplishments.


The cult classic film, American Graffiti, was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Picture, Director, Screenplay, Supporting Actress (Candy Clark), and Film Editing in 1973.  As fans know, the movie covers one night in the life of a group of teenagers growing up in the early '60s. Some of them are moving away to college, some are staying behind. Viewers get to see them cruising, playing pranks, and just hanging out. 
  CLICK on any of the photos more details and pictures.


Congrats Candy!  Very Cool!

American Graffiti store! CLICK on the poster. 




A group of pensioners were discussing their medical problems at the Day Centre coffee morning.


'Do you realise,' said one, 'My arm is so weak I can hardly hold this coffee cup.'


'Yes, I know.' replied the second, 'My cataracts are so bad I can't see to pour the coffee.'


'I can't turn my head,' rejoined the third, 'because of the arthritis in my neck.'


'My blood pressure pills make my dizzy,' commented the fourth, adding, 'I guess that's the price we pay for getting old.'


'Well, it's not all bad.' piped up the first, 'We should be thankful that we can still drive.'

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.

Pebble Beach Class-Winning Dick Flint Roadster to Cross the Block

Photo by Michael Furman, courtesy RM Auctions.
Article courtesy Daniel Strohl, Hemmings Blog.

Hot rods don't really come any more storied, recognizable, or influential than the Dick Flint roadster. It raced at El Mirage, it spiffed up for multiple magazine covers in the 1950s, and after a no-holds-barred restoration, it won its class at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. And next month it may very well set a record for world's most expensive hot rod when it comes up for sale at RM's Art of the Automobile auction.

A World War II Navy veteran and member of the Glendale Sidewinders, Dick Flint returned home to postwar Southern California to work at Alex Xydias's So-Cal Speed Shop and began assembling the pieces for the hot rod he'd been dreaming about for years.

CLICK on the photo for the complete article and photos.

RM's pre-auction estimate for the roadster ranges from $700,000 to $900,000, which would surpass the McMullen 1932 Ford roadster's $700,000 selling price from last November, believed to be an auction record for hot rods.

The Art of the Automobile auction will take place November 21 in the Sotheby's showroom in New York City. For additional details, visit

 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.

Henry Ford's Moving Automotive  

Assembly Line Turns 100

When Ford's Highland Park, Michigan, assembly plant opened in 1910, it was a wonder of the industrial age. Initially covering some 60 acres, the plant gave Ford the room it needed to increase production of the Model T, and in time the Highland Park complex would contain everything from a foundry to administrative offices. On October 7, 1913, Highland Park achieved one additional milestone, when Ford installed the plant's moving automotive assembly line.

Assembly lines and even moving assembly lines were not developed by Henry Ford or his staff. The first automotive assembly line.........

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.

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......

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.
