Merry Xmas

I don't know who she is but I love her anyways. Chicks with sleeves driving old trucks and face ink always get me. Ha

Billy Gibbons Black Bird

It is nice to know that some people have good taste. If I had money falling out of my ass this is all I would do is build insane cars and take them to Japan. Thanks Billy

Practical, No. Totally Bitchin', Yes. And built right here in the Midwest, good old MO.

Eat your hearts out fancy schmancy west and east coasters. Yep this shit, built in 1967 by Ray Fahrner (R.I.P) in Independence, MO.
It may be a show car, but if I owned it, I would be driving this downtown KC to get some BBQ along with Punk Rod Chris Webb in his Curtain Rod.

Hoping you have something nice under the tree this year!!

Prep work sucks....Because the normal eye sees no progress

West Bottoms Welcome Wagon

Just had a little fun the other day down in our garage neighborhood with some urban rats that needed to be shoo'd away. Please don't play in my yard and I will not play in yours. We like our West Bottoms the way it was without all the pansies sprouting up in our asphalt.
The graffiti artists and the hookers were much more tolerable than these scenes of the new era West Bottoms.

KKOA 2011 Salina KS

Pretty much in mass we all go to this show in Salina KS. It is top notch and is really one of the best shows in the mid west{besides ours}. Here are a couple of my favorite Kustoms from the show. This little falcon wagon is mind blowing. The Auto Butchers plaque is a long way from home. He drives that Chevy every year to Salina from Cali. Auto Butchers have a amazing history and is one of the only legit old school clubs still happening in cali. The OG plaques had a E. LA on the bottom when the Ayala brothers had there shop in E. LA in th early 50's. Cool shit and I hope the Punk Rods have that kind of Lineage as the torch gets passed down to our kids. We probably should stop having kids actually, right now they already out number the current members!

81 Means There Has Been 30 Years To Destroy This

Taking stuff apart is always the best part. I bought this 81 Ironhead motor just for spares and for the money I paid it was a good deal. You see as you get into the teardown you can always see what was going on. The tranny is toast and missing teeth and bent mainshaft means something went BAD in the tranny. Bushings are burnt and the rockers have LARGE pits in them. Someone did not adjust there pushrods. Anyways I am gonna clean all the usable parts and then just shelve the lower end. I got some new parts in the deal such as .50 over pistons, New valves and springs, Andrews q grind cams, and the oil pump, lifters, clutch plates etc etc are all good back up parts for the 79. Enjoy

diggin this digger!!

this is it , like everything about this bike i will be building mine to mimic this one

and no tammy and everybody else i do not need or will be wearing an outfit like this !!, except you might catch me in a wifebeater !!

Family owned since 51

So here is my troca. Grandpa bought it brand new and everyone in the family has owned it or driving it at some point. Drag raced in the 60's with this Mopar wedge and then put back into service by me. My mom is the little girl in the front seat. Only took me 16 years of begging to get the truck. Good for me bad for the Uncles.
