SEMA, SHELL, and Sean

A year ago we were all running a fever.  This fever didn't have anything to do with health, it was all about stealth. Rumors were flying about the existence of and possible discovery of one 1968 Mustang that had made a storied appearance in a movie that turned into a cult classic, Bullitt. NAIAS would...

Thank You Sam Foose

Kids and cars.  Each unique within their category. The same parents can produce polar opposites both in the car industry and life.  Every 57' Chevy is not the same.

Sausages, beer, and merry-making are all things we Americans think of during this time of year.  A good Octoberfest celebration can be had just about anywhere in the country.  German or not, it's a reason to celebrate.

Fall Arrived Today

Thumbnail moon, tell me the story of fall. What colors will you bring to the leafy wilderness? How many marshmallows will I toast to perfection? Who will I snuggle with at the bonfire?  The anticipation for all that fall brings began today. The 80s made their departure. Here to stay...the fabulous 60s and windows open... Continue Reading →
