Emily Reeves became popular by creating how-to videos for the weekend mechanics. Her “Flying Sparks Garage” YouTube channel became a huge hit showing how to replace brakes, install exhaust, engine upgrades and more.
We talked with Ricky about his hot rod build. We think the rod is in a class all by itself because Ricky blended cues from the rat, old school, traditional and modern designs. And it all works beautiful. Looking at the vehicle it’s hard to see all the body mods he had to change to make the final product. A true testament of his skills was how hard it was to see where he cut, chopped and bent the top and truck bed. The engineering of the chassis to fit the big block was really cool. The car has air conditioning, power steering and power brakes.
CARtoons Magazine is one of the coolest and funniest automotive magazines. Marc Methot rescued the magazine from the newsstand grave yard. The magazine started in the late 50’s and continued to be published until the 90’s. Where it fell into obscurity due to publishing cost and readers being distracted by that internet thinging.
The comic magazine includes short comic strips, short stories, cool artwork and kookie characters. The artwork is created by a lot of degenerate illustrators who gives the readers relate-able life experiences with cars. All subscribers can’t wait to see the next issue because each issue had a ton of fun to stare at.
Marc is a regular dude that stepped up and successfully obtained the trademark to this magazine. Since then he has been a busy guy. Running a print and digital magazine takes a lot of time.
John Buck is the owner of Rod Shows which sponsors the world famous Grand National Roadster Show. This year the GNRS will celebrate it’s 70th year. This show is considered the Grand Daddy of them All. Over 3 days of hosting over 500 vehicles inside several buildings and on Saturday you will find cool rides parked all over the grounds. It’s a tradition of car club members to bring their unique rides to help celebrate the GNRS. These rides don’t have to be roadsters to attend.
However, to compete for the “America’s Most Beautiful Roadster”, builders from all over bring their latest roadster builds. Each entry is painstakingly crafted because of the prestige of this grand award.
