What’s Up Chuck?

Old friend Chuck Hardesty’s 32 is all real steel. I took a few pictures of his very straight coupe at the Goodguys in Nashville, TN. I believe the pinstriping was done by Rick Harris.



Chuck and I both recieved our very own Norm Grabowski skull shifters at the same NRSA event in 2006. Below is a shot of Chuck’s skull shifter taken that day in Knoxville, TN five years ago.


Our Veterans Kept on Giving

There are two things I enjoy telling folks about Rumpsville and my roadster. First off Rumpsville is a state of mind steeped in respect and the stewardship of our hobby.

By most accounts the car culture of the 50’s is a product of the servicemen, who upon returning to the states hopped up, raced and customized their vehicles. Today we acknowledge our servicemen and their contributions to HOT RODDING.

Goodguys Nashville was outstanding, again!

This years Goodguy’s Nashville Nationals was outstanding in several respects. First the cars and vendors were top notch. Second the people, between the participants and the spectators it was not clear who had more fun. Finally the change in date, moving the event up a month made for a cooler day.

Although Sunday was a little hotter then Friday and Saturday the smaller crowd and the awards ceremony made for a nice closing day. We will be looking forward to next year!

Regrettably, I never seem to take very many pictures. I did manage to snap this one of a vehicle that cruised around quite a bit, seems to be an early model Port-A-John of some type.
