Constructions costs are escalating

What say you

What say you. I have been buying and selling hot rods and street rods for many years. As of late when I am working on getting a hot rod sold it seems like it is just not as much fun as it once was. Most folks act like they are buying a million dollar property. Not sure what has changed since the days of a just a few years back. Is it just me or have the times changed. Please comment on this post Willie Moore ...

Damn the luck Bartons 1792

Wow I was just there a few months ago.

Thousands of whiskey barrels crashed into a massive heap Friday when a large section of a decades-old storage warehouse collapsed at a distillery in the heart of Kentucky bourbon country. The damaged warehouse at the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown held about 18,000 barrels, and it appeared that up to half the barrels inside were affected, the distillery's owner said, per the AP. "We are assessing how many of the impacted barrels can be recovered. . ...

Wrap Up The LA roadster show

On Father’s Day weekend, hundreds of hot rods and customs took over the Pomona Fairplex for the 54th annual L.A. Roadster Show.

Painless Wiring the Industry Leader

Why use Painless Wiring?
It's a lot more than circuits and wire!
How often have you seen advertisements for wiring harnesses promising, "21-circuit kit for the low, low price of...?" What do you get for that low price? 21 circuits and yards of colored wire? Is that all you need, and exactly what makes up a proper wiring harness, anyhow? Well, it's a lot more than just circuits and wire. A wiring harness is, first and foremost, engineering.

How much time

“My time is worth more than money”
Every minute of every day is precious. It’s important to understand how much your time is worth. Treat your time like dollars and how you spend it. Wasting time is more of a travesty than wasting money.

“You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” ~Jim Rohn

What a true statement. We run through life as fast as we can sometimes without thinking how fast it is moving. Willie Moore ...

Scammer Warning

Scammer Warning be careful out there. Just wanted to take a minute and tell you about a friend who was ripped off on a car deal. A friend located a 1949 school bus from a man in Kansas named Jeremy Upham. They made the deal on the bus and my friend sent the man a deposit of $200.00. Not much money I know but the guys intent was to get more as the deal progressed. The buyer was going to Kansas to pick up the bus and once the deposit was sent the guy never would answer the phone. All for just $200...

Beatersville Louisville KY 2018

Beatersville Louisville KY 2018. What a great show. The show is held in the downtown area in between all the old buildings.

Change with Texas Antique Plates

Change with Texas Antique Plates. In Texas for years the process was seamless for antique plates for your car that was 30 years old or older. When I went in to get my new plates this year the process has changed. The plates are still issues for 5 years but you are no longer able to pick up the plates at the office. The plates now have to be mailed to your home and you will run a paper plate just like the new cars. Once your plates comes in you will then add a sticker to the plate like a trailer ...

What is going on

What is going on?? As we head out to many shows this year it has become clear to me that the older rods are not around as much as they were in the past years. Maybe it is the fact that most of the rodders are in fact old rodders and not able to get out as much as they once were. Maybe it is a true changing of the guard and the old rodders are just not making it out as much as in younger days. What are your thoughts???


Show cost are going up

Show cost are going up
We just got back from the 2018 Lone Star Round Up in Austin Texas. As we participate in these shows it is clear that the cost to attend is going up. I guess the folks running these events are just not making enough money and feel the need to increase what they are making. When we first started attending the round up the initial cost was $50.00 and that included two wrist bands to get it. Now you only get one band. The cost to walk in was $10.00 and now it cost $15.00 to ...
