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.

AMERICA'S MOST BEAUTIFUL ROADSTER 2015

 The Grand National Roadster Show- America's Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) winning car for 2015, Larry Olson's 1933 Ford built by Alloway's Hot Rod Shop in Louisville, TN.

 

Following article courtesy Classic Car News

 

1933 Ford Roadster built by Bobby Alloway
is 2015 America's Most Beautiful Roadster

Larry Olson of Sioux Falls, South Dakota asked Bobby Alloway to build his 1933 Ford Roadster, and the rest is now hot rod history. This stunning flamed '33 roadster has won the America's Most Beautiful Roadster trophy for 2015. The announcement was at the 2015 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California.

 

Long and low and crouched across its show display like a flaming black panther,  the 1933 Ford Roadster looked like the car to beat today. Alloway has set many trends in street rod building and his roadsters are famous. This one was stretched an extra two inches for a look and stance that is perfect. The secret to the car is in the details. The lines are simple and smooth, enhanced by perfectly formed steel body panels and gaps. It has Alloway wheels which complement the stance.

The engine is a 241 ci Dodge Red Ram Hemi fed by six Stromberg 97s set up in an original old school style. What you can't see is the fuel injectors hidden in the cylinder heads. The car has a Tremec T-5 transmission, Winters Performance V8 Quick Change rearend, Posie suspension parts and Billet Specialties. An old school custom black interior was done by Steve Holcomb Pro Upholstry.

Olson brought the flamed black roadster to the 66th Annual Grand National Roadster Show to win the America's Most Beautiful Roadster trophy. And that is what he did.

Inspired there, replicated there:
Italian builds homage to Edsel Ford's
1934 speedster


Photo courtesy Riccardo Grasso

 

Typically it's Americans who replicate Italian cars, what with all the Fauxrarris, Lampostorghinis, and Seventies kit cars built, not the other way around. One exception exists, however, and it rather makes sense, given that European coachcraft inspired it in the first place:  

Riccardo Grasso's tribute to  

Edsel Ford's 1934 Model 40 Special Speedster.

Edsel, whose sense of style far surpassed his father's and who in many ways ensured the success of Ford Motor Company, commissioned a number of specials and speedsters for his own use throughout the years. Perhaps one of the more famous of his specials (aside from the one that would go on to influence the production Lincoln Continental), the 1934 Model 40 speedster, began as a directive from Ford to E.T. "Bob" Gregorie to build him something "continental," by which he meant low, sleek, stylish, and racy. Gregorie started with a 1934 Ford chassis, but designed an entirely new aluminum two-seater body that positioned the driver far back in the chassis and that eliminated running boards, doors, and pretty much all unnecessary decoration. Originally built with a single vertical divided grille, the speedster later was fitted with its distinct lower horizontal grille to add cooling capacity.

The speedster remained in Ford's possession until his death in 1943, was sold for $200, then bounced from one end of the country to the other, popping up in Hollywood in the Forties and Fifties, then in Florida from the late 1950s on. Amelia Island Concours founder Bill Warner owned it for a time, before selling it at auction to collector John O'Quinn, whose estate later sold it to the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Estate, which restored it in its current gray livery and debuted it at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It's currently part of the Dream Cars exhibit which will make its way to Indianapolis later this year.

The First Batmobile Sells For a
Disappointing $137k
   

 Photo courtesy Heritage Auctions

The original Batmobile-or at least, the first real-life car that was licensed by DC Comics as a Batmobile-sold at auction for just $137,000 last December.  


That's a disappointing result considering the importance of the car in the pantheon of Bat-kitsch.  

And even though the George Barris TV creation that was created afterwards traded hands for $4.2M last year, this one brought a tiny fraction of that. Which isn't to sell the Forrest Robinson Batmobile short.

This video, which shows the car in motion, details its creation by avowed Batman fanboy and amateur car customizer Robinson. The interviews with its restorers and prior owners show why it's special- and why it was expected to bring in a lot more cash at auction.

 

Moreover, it's a proper early 1960s hot rod in many respects, packing a Olds Rocket V8 on a 1956 Olds 88 frame.

It was built by Robinson as a private venture, the only car he's known for, and was restored after being abandoned for decades-an expensive proposition. No word on whether the seller recouped their investment, but it's a surprising snub for a genuine, unique Batmobile.

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.

A man is in bed with his wife when there is a knock at the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it's 3:30 in the morning. "I'm not getting out of bed at this time," he thinks, and rolls over.

Then a louder knock follows. "Aren't you going to answer that?" says his wife. So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs. He opens the door and there is a man standing on the porch. It didn't take the homeowner long to realize the man was drunk.

"Hi there," slurs the stranger. "Can you give me a push??"
"No, get lost! It's half past three. I was in bed," says the man and he slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened and she says, "That wasn't very nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick the kids up from the babysitter and you had to knock on that man's house to get us started again? What would have happened if he'd told us to get lost?"

"But the guy was drunk," says the husband. "It doesn't matter," says the wife. "He needs our help and it would be the Christian thing to help him."

So the husband gets out of bed again, gets dressed, and goes downstairs. He opens the front door, and not being able to see the stranger anywhere he shouts, "Hey, do you still want a push?" And he hears a voice cry out, "Yeah, please." So, still being unable to see the stranger he shouts, "Where are you?"

And the drunk replies, "Over here, on the swing."

Two salesmen were going door to door, and knocked on the door of a woman who was not happy to see them. She told them in no uncertain terms that she did not want to hear their offer and slammed the door in their faces. To her surprise, however, the door did not close and, in fact, bounced back open. She tried again, really put her back into it, and slammed the door again with the same result-the door bounced back open.
Convinced these rude young people were sticking their foot in the door,she reared back to give it a slam that would teach them a lesson, when one of them said:

"Ma'am, before you do that again you need to move your cat."

 

   

 

First-Ever Packard Leaves Lehigh University
for First Preservation Work in 85 Years

1899 Ohio Model A, "Old Number One."
Photo from B.R. Howard.

Though it has rested in a glass case in Lehigh University's engineering building for the last 85 years, Old Number One-the vehicle considered to be the very first Packard ever built-hasn't exactly sat idle that whole time. Students over the years got to take it on jaunts around town, and it seems every time some dignitary came by, Lehigh officials would pull it out for a photo op. With Lehigh installing a new permanent enclosure for it, however, Old Number One's cruising days may very well have come to an end.

No tombstone grille adorns the front of Old Number One, and technically it's not even a Packard-it was built as an Ohio Model A four years before the automotive division of the New York and Ohio Company in Warren, Ohio, changed its name to Packard-but Packard enthusiasts and historians embrace it as one of their own nonetheless. James Ward Packard, his brother, William Doud Packard, and two former Winton employees, George Weiss and William Hatcher, built the car in 1899 as the first of five Model A's, conceived after James Ward Packard took his troublesome Winton back to the factory in Cleveland one too many times with suggestions for improvements.

Completed on November 6, 1899, the Model A featured a number of innovations, including a pedal for throttle control, automatic spark advance, a float-feed carburetor and a recirculating water pump for the cooling system.

See That Pile Of Old Junk?


This is what he starts with 

 

This article courtesy Sara Heddleston

 

John Piccoli is a 70 year-old man. He is also restricted to a wheelchair because he had polio as a young boy. But those two facts aren't the most important things about this man. John is an artist. Not only is he an artist, but a very unique one at that. The Australian man doesn't use paints or clays to create his pieces. Instead, he uses a small crane and a pile of scrap metal. You won't believe the outcome.   

John is able to work in three dimensions in his workshop with the help of a small crane. Being confined to a wheelchair hasn't thrown a wrench into his visions as an artist.

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:




1112 S Commerce Street

Las Vegas, Nevada 89102

     

 

While we were in Las Vegas for the SEMA Show, we had the opportunity to stop by and visit with Rick and Kelly Dale and the Rick's Restoration crew!  

 

 

Rick was kind enough to take the time give us a personal tour of the entire Rick's Restorations operation.  

Thanks Rick, Kelly and crew! 

 

-- SEMA SHOW WEEK --

 

 

 

Rick had something special under the cover he wanted  

to show Darold. 



Rick's personal project is the update on his F-1 Ford Pickup.


More Rick's F-1 Ford later as we follow the build.



We are still loading images to the photo albums, please keep checking back for the tour of Ricks shop
and the SEMA Show.
