At the beginning of every winter, we get antsy waiting for the Autorama circus to come to town. We can't wait to spend some crazy time with our hot rod buddies down in The Basement. So for weeks before the event, everyone preps their cars, clubs fix things on their displays, & girls are busy selecting their finery for the Pin Up contest.
Then we spend the week after the show in recovery. It seems like "normal" life makes a lot less sense after spending 4 days of hot rod hooligans, pin up girls, rockabilly music & other assorted tomfoolery.
Can't wait for next year!
I'd bet that the Amazon Queen of Long Island & Sir Edward of Metalflake can't wait either!

Say FUCK NO the to EPA's Threat to the Motorsports that we love:
SEMA Opposes Regulation Prohibiting Conversion of Vehicles into Racecars
This is total beaurecratic BULLSHIT!!!
Who in their right mind would want to kill a $120BILLION dollar a year industry???
Please sign the White House Petition asking the EPA to withdraw its proposal. We need 100,000 signatures in 30 days, so don't delay! Add your voice now and forward to your friends. Stop the EPA from making racecars illegal!
SEMA has issued a press release informing the public that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is aiming to make it illegal to convert automobiles originally designed for on-road use into racecars, even though such conversions have been done for decades. Under the EPA proposed rule, it would also be illegal to sell any performance-related products for those cars.
The EPA's proposal would have a devastating impact on motorsports since many types of racing rely on production vehicles that have been modified for use strictly at the track.
SEMA is working with all stakeholder groups to oppose the regulation through the administrative process and will seek congressional support and judicial intervention as necessary.

Today we "celebrate" the 5 year anniversary of one of the shittiest decisions ever made by the Supreme Court of the United States, the still controversial Citizens United decision. The Court handed a HUGE win to big corporate money and gave them deep-pocketed economic power over our elected officials.
In delivering their decision to allow corporations a larger voice in the election process than ordinary people have, Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Thomas & Kennedy proved that they are either naive old scholars, senile old gits, or unctuous slimeball pricks. You choose.
There seems to be universal agreement that these knuckleheads puked out a piss-poor decision. Some scholars argue Citizens United lit the fuse for the meteoric rise in the wealth of today's 1%-ers, as much as it has diminished the size & stature of today's middle class. As mountains of corporate money drive a stake deep into the heart of the American Democratic process & skewer the voice of the middle class, the 5 Justices seem to stand impassively behind their decision. It was a massive error in judgement that may never get corrected.
You could also argue that SCOTUS is the reason that we now are subjected to endless amounts of Trump's self aggrandizing bullshit & listen to the incessant chattering of the Alaskan Queen squirrel. It's enough to make you want to piss on the heads of those 5 Supreme Court Dickheads.

Take a gander at what these dipsticks at Car & Driver think is the best truck in America... their 2016 North American Truck of the Year. A uglied up, pseudo-Swedish turd, Made in China
& imported to the US for sale to dull, suburban, dunderpates.
Never mind that C&D's review speaks of vague steering "that doesn't have much to say"
, a powertrain that couldn't pull a greased stick out of a monkey's ass ("it can't be spurred on to do anything that will quicken your pulse"
), meager brakes that "don't inspire confidence"
, & a measly 25mpg on the highway, the C&D goofs still say it's the "Best".
With a $49,895 base price ($66k price tag as tested), it will easily afford the Communist Party's advertising execs the ability to drop loads of cash on print ads this year. It's no accident that the window stickers, the TV ads, etc never mention IMPORTED FROM CHINA
, but still refer to the vehicle as Swedish in origin. Laughable! Informed enthusiasts know that Chinese Engineering is an oxymoron & Chinese Quality will render any vehicle virtually unsellable in 2-4 years, as it falls apart around you.
Bloody hell, you Ann Arbor guys ought to be ashamed...

Today would've been Frank's 100th birthday.
"The Voice" had a passion for cool cars, hot broads, & good living. Ya can't argue with that.

35 years ago today, we lost celebrated musician John Lennon. In 1980, he was shot & killed just outside of the entrance to his New York City apartment, The Dakota. That night, Lennon and Yoko were returning home from the recording studio when suddenly, a 25-year-old crazed fan shot him at close range. Mark David Chapman had been seen earlier that day, hanging around with other fans outside the The Dakota entrance. The crazy bastard actually had the balls to ask Lennon for an autograph (rot in jail Chapman).
We still miss you John.

This was the 1st SEMA Show that I didn't see George anywhere. You could always count on finding him flirting with the gals or kabitzing with Linda Vaughn after the show in the bar at the LVH.
This year, there was no trademark gold jacket to be seen anywhere, not even during the show. We got to talk with Gene, Linda, & a host of others, but no George. We were quite confused by his absence, then Thursday morning, we got the bad news about his passing. Damn, it sure took the gloss off this year's event for many of us.
Thanks George Barris
, you gave us the Hirohita Merc, Sam's Merc, the Kopper Kart, the Surf Woody, ala Kart, the Batmobile, the Munster's Coach, Dragula, & so much more...
GodSpeed, Sir. The hobby will never be the same without your gift of showmanship & special brand of glamour.
