JOWz – A Year In Review

Looking back can propel one forward. Many decry looking back on the past, for we can't change it. What if we don't want to? 2018 bloomed with so many great opportunities I just had to share some of my favorites with you again...as a GOOD look at the past year. It all started with the...

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. Coming from a family of five kids I get it.  So did Sam Foose. Sam Foose was the father of Overhaulin's Chip Foose (aka Samuel Foose... Continue Reading →

MOPAR Madness @ SEMA 2018

There is an Indian fable that tells of six blind men and an elephant.  Each one feels the elephant in a different place and forms an opinion of what the animal is, based on his experience.  One says like a spear, because he is touching the tusk.  One says like a rope as he interprets...

It will be found.If you've ever watched an episode of "Chasing Classic Cars" with Wayne Carini or "Overhaulin'" with Chip Foose or a multitude of other gems on the Velocity Channel, you understand this concept of the "chase" as Wayne has so appropriately...

Herr Hartman... Continue Reading →

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 →

Voices From the Past – Lessons Learned

I was interviewed last week by a local news outlet for whom I'll be writing auto content.  Excited about the new opportunity I anxiously awaited the phone call at the appointed time. Pleasantries were exchanged and recorders were activated as I answered reasonable questions about how and why I blog, where I went to school,... Continue Reading →

Honor Your Mother

Mothers are special. They know you better than you know yourself. They never give up, never give in, they are everywhere, just like Visa. One mother that is still alive and kicking is known by a number as well. No it's not 007, but just as stealthy, 66. Celebrations line the way from Chicago to... Continue Reading →
