It's my dad's fault...

Well, as I said I am into hot rods, and that comes from my dad...a hot rod hoodlum from way back.  As my mom always said, I never had a chance growing up around cars and my dad LOL.

My earliest memories are of a 55 vette my dad bought and turned into a bit of a hot rod in the late 60's/early 70's.

He had lots of other cars before and after that one, but it is the first one I remember.

It was a 1955 V8 vette and below is a picture of how it looked when he got it (in red) and some pics of when he was working on it.

The other vette was his best buds car that he grew up with.

I also threw in a pic of my mom and dad when they were dating with a custom Plymouth he had at one point.

Hope ya enjoy the pics and let me know what you think.

About me:  I am all about the rockabilly and surf music with a bit of psychobilly and jump blues tossed in.

I am also a hot rod guy and own a 1950 Merc I have had since I was in high school (grad of 1986), a 1932 Ford 5 window coupe, and I am working on a roadster project with my father.

I am also the worlds worst guitarist and bass player.

Now you know all about me...

Whoopie, it's a blog.

Soon I hope to post some rockabilly and surf stuff (reviews etc.)

I will mostly be posting hot rod stuff, in the meantime take it easy.
