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.

Cracker Jack Brand Hits Home Run


Cracker Jack Brand Hits Home Run With First-Ever Float In 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®


Cracker Jack, the brand known for the "surprise inside" every package, and Macy's are unveiling the biggest surprise yet this Thanksgiving: a float in the 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade® in New York City.

This marks the first time a PepsiCo brand has presented a float in the iconic Parade that has long been an American tradition known for bringing families together. Cracker Jack is one of the many brands that make up PepsiCo's
Frito-Lay division.

The float is 36 feet long, more than three stories tall and as wide as three buses lined up end-to-end.

The float features infield, outfield and bleacher seats adorned with giant sculptures as well as live-action cameras capturing the children and performers on the float, as well as spectators along the Parade route.

Fans can find more than two dozen baseballs and bats in various locations throughout the float.

There are more than 100 linear feet of hand-stitched red, white and blue bunting decorating the float.

Below a life-size, fully operational scoreboard, a live musical performance will take place.

HISTORY: A German immigrant named Frederick William Rueckheim invented Cracker Jack. Rueckheim came to Chicago in 1872 to help clean up after the famous Chicago fire and he also worked selling popcorn from a cart.

 Together with brother Louis, Rueckheim experimented and came up with a delightful popcorn candy, which the brothers decided to mass market. Cracker Jack was first mass-produced and sold at the first Chicago World's Fair
in 1893.

The Ferris Wheel, Aunt Jemima pancakes, and the ice cream cone were also introduced at the event.

Harold Bagdasarian, 91, passes
Founded the Sacramento Autorama


 
(Article courtesy the Sacramento Bee)

Harold A. Bagdasarian, a Sacramento entrepreneur, impresario and car buff who founded one of the premier shows for custom-made vehicles in the country,
died October 16 at the age of 91.

Mr. Bagdasarian, who started in the cab business, was a showman with an enduring passion for automobiles. As president of the the Capitol City Auto Club, he persuaded members to put on an exhibition to settle friendly arguments over who had the most beautiful roadster. The contest drew 22 vehicles and fewer than 300 spectators to the Capitol Chevrolet auto dealership at 13th and K streets in 1950.

Tapping into the popular California car culture that grew after World War II, he promoted the show on his own and moved to bigger venues. Held since 1970 at Cal Expo, the Autorama became the West Coast's biggest indoor custom-car and hot-rod show. Each year, tens of thousands of fans gather to marvel at hundreds of exotic cars, trucks, vans and motorcycles.

Besides vehicles from leading custom builders, the multiday event features popular cars from movies and TV shows and guest appearances by athletes, Hollywood entertainers and other celebrities.

"He had model cars for the kids, soap-opera stars for women, something for everybody," his daughter Linda Winther said. "He wanted the show to be for the whole family, not just the guys."

Mr. Bagdasarian was known nationwide as a car show promoter. He managed and had ownership interests in several major Northern California auto events, including the Grand National Oakland Roadster Show, World of Wheels in San Mateo and the San Jose Autorama. He promoted motorcycle races at Hughes Stadium, produced indoor midget car races at Cal Expo and organized hydroplane races at Folsom Lake.

He sold his interest in the Sacramento Autorama to local auto legend Don Tognotti in 1991. The event changed hands again and has been owned since 2005 by Southern California promoter John Buck.


Harold had been a member of the Sacramento Autorama 'LEGENDS' since 1991.

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.

It was the first full frequency-range speaker box designed specifically for cars and trucks. From that historic moment, delivering concert-like audio quality across a wide volume range with renowned bass and accurate sound has always been the KICKER way.

KICKER graces the Stillwater, Okla., skyline and has stayed true to the values from which the company was built. KICKER products are designed and shipped from a 280,000-square-foot facility that houses nearly 200 energetic individuals who constantly push the limits of audio-design technology and performance.

  

KICKER products are currently sold by approximately 1,200 authorized dealers in the United States, and export sales are managed through a network of distributors serving over 2,000 dealers in approximately 50 countries.

We've created precision tooling that accurately produces every panel exactly as original.

Elvis Presley Home Auction Canceled  

   

The former home of Elvis Presley, seen in this 2013 photo, will no longer be up for bid Saturday.
(Photo: Desert Sun file photo )  

 

Any hopes of bidding on the former Palm Springs home of Elvis Presley have just been dashed.

A public auction slated Saturday for the 1946 home located at 845 W. Chino Canyon was canceled Wednesday morning.
The listing agent, Jeff Egan, announced the update in an email, saying that the seller had instead accepted a pre-auction offer. The sale price and the identity of the buyer will not be disclosed until escrow closes within the next 30 days. At that point, the sale will become public record, Egan wrote.

When the auction was first announced, the home originally had an asking price of $3 million. The price dropped to $2.59 million as the date drew near. The home attracted multiple offers and counter-offers, Egan said. The home, which has sat vacant in disrepair for months, needs quite a bit of renovation. During an open house in February, the carpet was stripped in at least one room, and modern updates were clearly needed. One area of the house retained the king's fondness for the color red, which was hue of the master bedroom's carpet and the tiles in the bathroom.

"The house needs work, and whoever buys it will have to make an investment," Egan said. More than 200 people visited the home during recent open house tours of the 1.75-acre lot. Court documents show that US Bank National Association bought the foreclosed property at a Sept. 17, 2013, public auction for $1.7 million.

Presley bought the four-bedroom, seven-bathroom, home in 1970 for $105,000 and owned the property for seven years. The 5,040-square-foot house was one of the few Spanish colonial homes designed by famed architect Albert Frey, who is known much more for his modernist designs.

After Presley died, Frankie Valli of The Four Seasons bought the home, and sold it in 1981 for $500,000.

After becoming very frustrated with the attitude of one footwear shopkeeper, a young blonde, looking for alligator shoes declared, 'Well, then, maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator and get a pair of alligator shoes for free!' 

 

The shopkeeper replied with a sly smile, 'Well, little lady, why don't you go give it a try?'

 

The blonde heads off to the swamp, determined to catch an alligator. Later in the day, the shopkeeper was driving home, and spotted the young woman standing waist deep in the murky water, shotgun in hand.

 

He saw a huge 9-foot gator swimming rapidly toward her. With lightning reflexes, the blond took aim, shot the creature and hauled it up onto the slippery bank.
Nearby were 7 more dead gators all lying belly up.  

 

The shopkeeper watched in amazement as the blond struggled with the gator. Then, rolling her eyes, she screamed in frustration.......

 

"****!!  THIS ONE'S BAREFOOT TOO!!!"    

 

 

Records are meant to be broken: 80.4 MPH  

on a steam-powered motorcycle

 

 

(Courtesy Daniel Strohl)  

Breaking land-speed records tends to be a fairly difficult proposition. The multitude of venues for doing so nowadays has opened up the opportunities for record breaking, but has also attracted more racers going after records, ratcheting the speeds up higher every year. So it'd probably make sense to find a fairly old, fairly obscure record to break.

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.

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.

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.

AMERICAN RESTORATION  

 


 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.  

Did we mention Rick's pickup is:
