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.

B-29 Superfortress Bomber

PHOENIX, AZ. (KSAZ)


A bit of aviation history flew into Deer Valley Monday morning and her name is Fifi -- a B-29 Superfortress bomber.

"The bombardier in the front had the best seat available," said Colonel Mark Novak, a Commemorative Air Force pilot.

And it's a seat you could have if you want to book a ride on Fifi.

Flying into the valley between rain showers, Novak says she's truly one of a kind -- because Fifi is the only B-29 still flying.

"She's special.  We take great care of her.  It's a great thing that I get to fly the airplane," he said.

Fifi has been part of the Commemorative Air Force since she was found in the 1970s at the US Navy Proving Ground at China Lake in California.  Before that, she served as a trainer for US Air Corps pilots who flew B-29s over Japan in World War II and later over Korea.

Now the Commemorative Air Force flies her around the country to give people and experience they could never get in a museum.

"We don't want to be a static museum, we don't want to be in one hangar and people come to us.. we can have a hundred times more people see us during the year when we bring the airplane out," said Novak.

THE 1940 FORD CUTAWAY 

Article and photos courtesy The Ford Barn by Ryan

What you see before you is something so incredibly rare that there doesn't seem to be anyone alive that can actually tell us why it was made or for whom. It's a 1940 Ford cutaway chassis and running gear that is owned and was restored by Rick Rennebohm of Whidbey Island, WA. Rick bought the enigmatic chassis on eBay in 2009 without knowing much about its history. He just thought it was cool... and had to have it.

Of course, as soon as he got the thing home and started restoring it he began to wonder just where in the hell it came from. The obvious place to start was Dick Pierson - the man he bought the chassis from. As it turns out, Dick bought the contraption from Iowa State University in 1994. A friend of a friend of his, Richard Grieve, was working with the school's industrial engineering department in a space that had been recently abandoned by the university's veterinarian school. Richard simply walked into the lab one day and the cut-away chassis was sitting innocently in a hall way.

Richard had owned a couple of 1940 Fords in the past and knew instantly what the chassis was and felt there had to be some importance to it. His first thought was that it belonged in a museum, so he called The Henry Ford Museum and pitched them on his new find. They claimed to already have one on premise and declined the opportunity.


A side note here... You would think the fact that The Henry Ford had a cut-away already would be a big break in this investigation. I mean, if they have one they, of all people, would know its history - right? Well, it's turns out that The Henry Ford Museum does not have a 1940 Ford cut-away in their inventory. In fact, what they have is an Oldsmobile.

Anyway, after striking out with the museum suits, Richard decided to see if any local early Ford guys had interest. A friend of a friend hooked him up with Dick Pierson and Dick was able to buy the car from the University. Once Dick had the car, he cleaned it up a bit and showed it around the midwest. In 2007, he tried to get it into the Peterson Museum, but was rejected. He sold it to Rick soon after.
So we know the car was at one time owned by Iowa State University, but how in the hell did they get it? And why?

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 mother-in-law stopped by unexpectedly the recently married couple's house.

She knocks on the door, then immediately walks in. She is shocked to see her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally naked.

"What are you doing?" she asked.

"I'm waiting for Jeff to come home from work," the daughter-in-law answered.

"But you're naked!" the mother-in-law exclaimed.

"This is my love dress," the daughter-in-law explained.

"Love dress? But you're naked!"

"Jeff loves me to wear this dress! It makes him happy and it makes me happy."

The mother-in-law on the way home thought about the love dress. When she got home she got undressed, showered, put on her best perfume and expectantly waited for her husband, lying provocatively on the couch.

Finally her husband came home. He walked in and saw her naked on the couch.

"What are you doing?" he asked.

"This is my love dress," she replied.

"Needs ironing," he says" "What's for dinner?"

ERNIE HEMMINGS PASSES



Ernest Hemmings in 2001 - Article Courtesy Hemmings Daily

An Illinois parts dealer who created an institution in the world of automotive history, Ernest Robert Hemmings, the father of Hemmings Motor News, died this week at the age of 89. Ernie, as he liked to be called, was living in a nursing home in his hometown of Quincy, Illinois. He had been in fading health of late and died peacefully in his sleep, his son, Trent Hemmings, told us.

Ernie had taken over a parts business that his late father had founded, Standard Auto Parts, and began stocking components for antique Fords, especially the Model T and Model A. That was in 1945, when Ts and As were not quite yet out of the realm of used cars. Ernie was a fan of them, however, and Standard developed a regional and then national reputation as a parts source for early Fords. The growing interest led Ernie to a brainstorm: Create a newsletter that catered specifically to the owners of these obsolete cars that weren't yet considered relics. Customer friendly from the start, he offered free ads to readers.

The first edition of the newsletter was four pages, printed on mimeographed paper, issued in 1954, and all typed by Ernie's hand. He also came up with a freehand logo, Hemmings Motor News. The first edition of "the magazine," as he called it from the outset, had a half-dozen classified ads in it. About 500 readers signed up for a yearly subscription to Hemmings, priced at 50 cents.

It only took a few years for Hemmings Motor News to become an established forum for people who wanted to buy cars or parts to restore them. Soon, circulation was up to about 3,000 copies each month. Ernie had transitioned from parts retailer to editor and author, typing out short features that ran amidst the growing number of classified advertisements. Another decade saw both the magazine's page count and subscriber rate boom, in the latter case to 40,000.

By that time, the whole enterprise had become too unwieldy for one man to handle. CLICK on the photo above to read the complete article over at Hemmings Daily.

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.

"Starbird Car Shows would like to congratulate Keith Dean and his '59 custom El Camino owned by Mike Gardner, on winning the 2015  "Go for the Gold" award! Could not have gone to a more deserving individual!"

 

"For the many prestigious awards on the show circuit, none can compare to the Fine Nine Award. While others look for the prettiest and cleanest, our $10,000 cash prize goes to the vehicle that aspires to push the limits on automotive design and execution."

 

   

South End Kustom was started by Dick Dean, the year was 1956 in Wyandotte, Michigan. Working for other shops, such as Clark/ Kaiser and the Alexander Brothers. South End Kustom stayed busy.  

 

In 1959, at the Detroit Autorama, Dick met George Barris. George had told Dick that he needed to be in California. At the end of that year Dick closed the shop and moved to California to work for Barris. In 2005, Dick Dean was set to retire. His son, Keith Dean wanted to continue the "Dean" tradition . As a tribute to Dick, Keith reopened the shop as South End Kustom and is continuing the old school kustom tradition set forth by his father.

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.
