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. The area was an old industrial area with buildings that are over 100 years old. There were hundreds of cool rides, live music and great food. The show is a little like the Lone Star Round up in Texas. Everything from rat rods to 100K roadsters. If you are able to make it the show should be on the top of your list for next year. ...

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 ...

Ford Flat Head Ignition Upgrade

It still enjoys a healthy aftermarket presence, so it’s not really a surprise that the application is covered by Performance Distributors.

Methods to remove Rusted Bolts

We have all hod those times when old rusted bolts just will not come out. Here are the top 10 ways to get them removed.

Methods to remove Rusted Bolts

1. Blunt Impact/Force: This is usually our first step when attempting to loosen stubborn bolts. We always use this method before attempting to remove exhaust studs from a cylinder head. There are a few methods to accomplish this. One is to hit on the head of the bolt in the center with a chisel or punch. Another is use an impact wrench/gun ...

Cam Shaft Information

UNDERSTANDING CAMSHAFT SPECIFICATIONS
There are many numbers and terms used when describing a camshaft’s design that must be understood when choosing a cam. It’s good to know exactly how each of these specs affects the engine’s performance, but one of the most important is duration, so pay special attention to that one. Also, look at the recommendations given by the cam companies for our six sample vehicles at the end of this article. Compare how the specs change from one example to the other, ...

GM rear end information

When it comes to Chevrolet rear ends, it’s the 12-bolt that seems to get all the accolades. Rightfully so, because when comparing the 10 and 12-bolt units, it’s definitely the more durable of the two. That’s usually proven when used in high-performance, high-horsepower applications. But for all intents and purposes, the 10-bolt rear end is a great unit for a street/strip car, and can be stout enough to handle even the occasional abuse delivered by use at the racetrack. Here are a few photos to h...

Jack Daniels History

Jack Daniels History

There is an interesting picture that hangs in Mr. Jack Daniel’s old office. It’s a picture of Mr. Jack taken with his Distillery crew. What makes the portrait so intriguing is the gentleman sitting immediately to Jack’s right, an African-American worker. Given the time period when this photograph was taken – around the 1900s – and the racial divide that permeated the American South, it’s intriguing to see an African-American man seated beside the proprietor of a busines...

Ignition System Facts

Often times when making upgrades to our hot rods, we forget the importance of a strong, high-performance ignition system. Having one is truly one of the best insurance policies against detonation, misfires, and other ignition gremlins. Upgrading the ignition system in your project car to a race-proven one with components can really prove to be beneficial.
Whether you’re using your project for a street application, or a strip, or even both, anyone can benefit from upgrading these components.
