Music...It's deep in our roots.

We live it,
breathe it and make it kick!


In 1973, KICKER's Livin' Loud legacy began as a two-man operation, hand-building professional-speaker systems in a narrow one-car garage. With very few resources and an intense love for music, company founder and current President Steve Irby invented the mobile-stereo enclosure market in his northern Oklahoma community, when he developed the Original KICKER.

Eighty years of rust and neglect has been tough on the original5-window coupes.

Starting your project with a new steel body from United Pacific Industries is the best way to make your dream hot rod a reality. We've created precision tooling that accurately produces every panel exactly as original. Throughout the process of manufacturing the new 1932 Five Window Body, we had many decisions to make regarding tooling design, modern enhancements, and material specifications. Our philosophy from the beginning was to make it just the way it was! In fact, there are only two options:

1) Original Open Insert Roof, or a Steel Filled Roof

2) With Cowl Vent, or Without


Every part and panel for this body are also available!

John Wayne's Barris-modified 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari heads to auction

 

John Wayne's 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari.  

Photos courtesy Mecum Auctions.

 

Article Courtesy Kurt Ernst

 

John Wayne preferred Pontiac station wagons for his family-friendly daily driver, but when it came to cars, The Duke wasn't an off-the-rack guy. Seeking enough headroom to comfortably wear his trademark cowboy hat inside his automobile, Wayne entrusted Barris Kustoms with raising the roof on his 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari station wagon. This particular Pontiac, set to cross the auction stage in Monterey, was the third and final raised wagon built by Barris for The Duke, and was reported to be among the last cars driven by Wayne before his death in 1979.

 

Aside from the increased headroom and discreet badging on the dash and front fenders, Barris Kustoms otherwise left this particular Pontiac alone. The first station wagon built by Barris for Wayne, in 1970, produced a Pontiac (which sold at auction for $67,500 in 2010) that featured two-tone paint, gold wheels, a vinyl roof, steer horns and even a galloping cowboy fender mural.  

 

Barris's next attempt, believed to be in 1972, yielded a vehicle that differed from stock only in its raised and vinyl-clad roof, making it clear that Wayne preferred a bit more discretion in his later years.

FIREROCK  GRILL  

 

 

The Sheepherder Inn is now THE FIREROCK GRILL

Back in 1913 The Citrus Inn opened 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.

BIT OF HUMOR ?

A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says, "That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!" The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, "The driver just insulted me!" The man says, "You go right up there and tell him off - go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you."

--------------------
One day a duck walks in a store and ask the manager if they sell grapes. The manager says, "No, we don't sell grapes." The duck goes home and comes back the next day and asks the same question. The manager says the same thing again, "No, we do not sell grapes." The duck goes home, comes back the next day, and asks the manager if they sell grapes. This time the manager says, "No, we don't sell grapes!

If you ask one more time, I will nail your beak to the floor!" The duck goes home. It comes back the next day and asks the manager if he has any nails. The manager says, "No, I don't have any nails." The duck says, "Okay, good. Do you sell grapes?"

ACME TRADING COMPANY


Acme Diecast is pleased to announce the second release in the series of six models dedicated to the special WT color series that Shelby offered in 1968. This is Shelby's 1968 GT350 finished in a brilliant yellow that was designated WT6066.

In 1968 only, Shelby had six rare paint codes designated as "WT" colors, and Carroll only made 159 cars in total using these six colors. Check out the web site for a more detailed history on these "WT" cars and this production will be made up of 1968 Shelby GT500 KRs and GT350s.

Production quantities could be as low as 750 as we might run two colors at the same time. They will be released over the course of production from our entire Shelby line up. So other Shelbys will be interspersed between the release of this series.

Estimated production is 996 pieces, and the ETA is late June/ early July.

LORDS OF THE CAR HOARDS


Every year finding unrestored classic American cars is becoming a thing of the past. But there's a secret treasure trove of automotive relics that still exists: Car Hoards -- the last frontier of the American Classic Car. Now, WWE superstar Chuck Palumbo and hot rod guru, Rick Dore are out to rebuild legendary cars and help car hoarders thin out their stockpiles of classic cars in
LORDS OF THE CAR HOARDS.


Each episode of LORDS OF THE CAR HOARDS features Palumbo and Dore helping car hoarders by offering them a deal: pick one dream car from their overcrowded car collection to rebuild while covering the costs of the remake by parting with and selling other cars and car parts from their massive hoard. Every hoard is a surprise, a treasure hunt, and Palumbo and Dore don't always know what they're getting into.  The pressure is on and they don't always get along, but together they have a passion for cars that touches these hoarders' lives, changing them forever. grace the covers and pages of hot rod magazines, including Rod & Custom, Rodder's Journal and Custom Rodder.

Hot Rod Phenomenon:
How United Pacific Resurrected The Deuce Coupe

Courtesy David Chick / Rod Authority


"If this was the way Henry Ford did it back then, then that is how we were going to do it now". -David Odegard, Project Manager, United Pacific.

The Ford Model 18- it goes without saying that this car was one of the most creative endeavors of a Big Three company, not to mention a legend in its own right. It was the first car to ever offer an affordable V8 engine to the masses, offering speeds not seen in the majority of commonplace production cars, and arguably exists today as the pioneering and iconic specimen of hot rodding.

Meanwhile, a California-based company, United Pacific, had made a name for itself making 18-wheeler components with a strict limit for error and high regard for polished detail, as well as a host of restoration parts for classic hot rod and muscle car applications. That all changed in 2009, when the company took on a project that would change the future of the '32 Ford forever.

Background Of An Icon

In the years leading up to the Model 18, Ford Motor Company was entering a state of despair. The once-successful Model T was entering its nineteenth year in production in 1927. Old Henry Ford, now in his sixties, was stubborn and intractable when it came to producing new designs. Yet, even he couldn't deny the writing on the wall as Chevrolet began to outsell Ford.

After the Model A proved somewhat mild in terms of success, Ford gathered his best and brightest in 1929 to create a new bestseller. What resulted was the V8-powered Model 18, based on its four-cylinder Model B cousin. The car sold incredibly well, thanks to its immaculate design and 75 mph top speed- but the mystique of the '32 Ford would only grow in the years to come, as hot rodders the world over began to fall in love with the car.

A Tale Of Two Factories

In an interesting twist of happenstance, both United Pacific and Ford Motor Company shared more than just the passion for Deuce Coupes. The two companies are neighbors across time, thanks to a factory that Ford had run from 1930 (Model 18s were built there) to 1956, while United Pacific established its headquarters in the 1980s just a few miles away.

"We know when we make the die for a part, that there
is no contour that isn't accurate; we've already
tested it all," said Odegard.


Ford Motor Company was so pleased with United Pacific's recreated Deuce Coupe that it hosted a completed replica inside its booth at the 2013 SEMA Show.

FAQs For Classic Vehicle And Street Rod Owners

1: How often should I change my oil?

Quite simply - it depends. This certainly isn't the ideal answer, but it is the most honest one. Temperature plays a major role in the frequency of necessary oil change intervals. Every 20░F increase in oil temperature beyond 220░F shortens the life of the oil by 50%. This means cars that run very high oil temps will have much shorter oil life than cars that have moderate oil temperatures. Read On....


Designed Specifically For Hot Rods & Classic Vehicles

Well suited for a variety of hot rods, muscle cars and vintage vehicles. This oil is an excellent choice for big block muscle cars, blown street rods and engines with original seals. Features storage protection additives that guard against rust and corrosion during winter storage.

Good for flat tappet, overhead and roller cam engines. No ZDDP or additives required. Viscosity typical of 15W-50. Formerly referred to as HR1.

 
The Importance of ZDDP
ZDDP is the critical anti-wear additive in motor oils.
Here Lake Speed, Jr., Certified Lubrication Specialist at Driven Racing Oil™, explains how the proper balance of detergents and zinc are the key to protecting engines.

U2 AIRCRAFT UP CLOSE



OK...sometimes Darold and Mike Kohout (Sacramento Vintage Ford) have to opportunity to do some.....well...
pretty cool stuff.

The above photo was taken later in the evening out on the tarmac with a fleet of T-38 fighters, not displays,
active aircraft. Darold was at the top of the ladder wanting to settle in but was waved off. In the seat, that T-38 cockpit literally engulfs you. Intense.

Mike and I had the extraordinary opportunity to ride along in the 'chase' cars as the U2's did touch and go landings and take offs.

Yes, we are that close...... and as you can tell by the position of the speedometer needle, we is moving!

The photos on the runways are the
U-2's. They had two in the air that night. Our guide and chase car driver was one of the U-2 pilots..... The speedometer when I spotted it was 114mph. Mike said he saw 120mph! These U-2's would touch down and take off and the chase cars had to monitor both activities. So as one off lifted off we went 'quite fast' back to a spot on the tarmac then waited for the next one to touch down. These planes only have one nose wheel and one tail wheel.


The wing span is 10' wider than a 737!
Max altitude, 70,000 feet.

When they taxi out of the hanger they have two additional 'wheels' attached to the wings. During take off the two wing wheels release and drop to the ground. First time we watched it take off we expected it would get up to speed and well, take off. This thing just nosed up and was gone....
 
 Knowing what the cost of the flight suits are, this must be about a $10,000. glove.


Emblem painted on the floor of the R&R area.


That is an approaching U2 in the upper right corner. We are sitting on a side runway getting ready to get up to speed with the U2 as it does it's touch and go. It's right about here that our driver, a U2 pilot, hits the gas, the chase car engine just screams as we get on course to run parallel with the U2
.... yes it was a rush!

Mike Gardner's 1951 Lincoln Custom 'RUBY'
Candy Land Lincoln

By Dave Wallace  -  Photography by Wes Allison  

 

-Courtesy Hot Rod Deluxe-  

You'd need a big pair and/or a pea brain to dare debut a candy-red custom at Sacramento's Autorama, an historic show whose judges include the inventor of candy-apple paint.  

 

To be so ballsy in Joe Bailon's backyard-a region that's produced more customizing legends than anyplace else on earth (Bailon, the Barris boys, Bertolucci, Bagdasarian, DeRosa, Westergard, Winfield, and so on)-is to risk ridicule from the masters, in person. Though the survivors are in their 80s and 90s now, most still manage to make an event that's been making and breaking customizers' careers since 1950.  

 

So you can't blame Autorama builders who choose a color-any color-other than candy-apple red.

The Lost 1956 Chrysler Norsman


The Chrysler Norseman was a design concept model built under the direction of Mr. Virgil Exner in 1956. To build this remarkable vehicle, the project cost $150,000. This was one part of a series of Chrysler's advance models which were considered the automobile of the future. The Noresman offered new electrical and styling innovations that most companies could only dream of at that time. It took the Chrysler Noresman concept model more than two years on the drawing boards to fully design and another 15 months to develop and build. The Norseman model was 227.5 inches long and had a 129 inch wheelbase.

It was known as the Chrysler "Idea" car. The Norseman was a two door hardtop which did not offer any door post or pillars. It also featured hideaway headlamps along with a fastback roof-line that was long, low, and clean to look at from a designer's perspective. The interior offered a futuristic theme, four bucket seats for passengers, and an upholstered interior that was offered in a green and gray metallic leather.... CLICK above to read on.
 

The Norseman model's drawing plans along with a smaller scale model were sent to Ghia in Turin, Italy. Ghia offered some of the best and talented Italian coach-building employees in the world. They were considered masters at what they did. They also put together prototypes. One example would be the 1950's Lincoln Futura concept model for Ford Motor Company that was later used in the popular "Bat Man" TV series.

The Chrysler design team wanted a fully drivable model with a Hemi engine; not just a rolling design mock-up. After the handcrafted model was completed, the model was then placed on an Ocean Liner, the S.S. Andrea Doria to be shipped to Chrysler for an up-coming Auto show exhibit for 1957.  CLICK on the car to read the article.
